For the last day of the year, I scoured through my Instagram, Facebook and Google photo drive to try to jog my memory on all the events that happened this year. Well 2015, lets just say you were a total mother effer of a year. You filled my life with monstrous highs and equally tough lows.

I’m thankful for everything that’s happened this year because I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. But not going to lie, I’m going to be quite happy to bid you adieu 2015 and start fresh for 2016!

Below are 2015’s notable memories:

1. Unforgettable Turks & Caicos family trip (Jan)


2. Uncle Tetsu opened up near my condo… and I developed an unhealthy relationship with the cheesecake (March)


3. Best friend passed away (March)


Our dogs – forever best friends

4. Left a job where I made some amazing friends and had some unforgettable memories (May 15)


5. Took a month off – AMAZING! Visited Newfoundland to visit the Newfie Nuggets (May)


6. Went to Kelowna, BC for Dan’s sister’s wedding (May)


7. Started a new job (June 15)


8. Went on a trip BY MYSELF – this is significant as I’ve never done this before. I was going to SF for training so I flew in earlier for the weekend.  I rented an Airbnb which I’ve never done before, and spent 2 days exploring the city on my own (June)

9. TURNED 30! Dan threw me a birthday party that featured a teepee (July)


10. Got married – Chinese banquet and the White wedding! (August)


11. Got Bells Palsy – half my face became paralyzed. I’m convinced it was stress induced. Advice: never start a new job and also get married at the same time (Sept)

12. Digital perm – NO REGRETS! I know perms can seem like a recipe for disaster but ever since I got one, people have complimented me on my perma beachy waves look (Sept)

13. Frankly turned TWO YEARS OLD (Oct)


14. Mother/Daughter trip to Montreal (October) – my mom +aunts + cousins. THE BEST! (Oct)

15. Took a web dev course and learned how to make a website (Sep-Dec)
