I hate to say it but almost everyone seems to be in mutual agreement that 2016 wasn't the greatest year at all. I mean, I'm hoping someone out there on this planet had a wonderful year, an unforgettably amazing year, but for the majority of us, I think we're more than ready for a fresh new start, am I right?

I saw old faces I once knew, ate at restaurants I had always wanted to visit, and admired much of what I used to overlook. It served as a reminder that if all else fails in life, my home will always be there. (Read more here)
