And just like that, y’all, 2016 has come and (almost) gone. Just bananas, I tell ya. While I’m well aware that there are quite a few 2016 haters out there (a lot went down this year), I have to say that personally, it was one hell of a year around here. This year I married my best buddy and started on our first year of marriage. After all of last year’s planning and prepping and dreaming and more planning, our wedding celebration was everything we could have hoped for, and we still look back on the day ALL the time. This year we bought our first home and started the long journey of gutting it, remodeling, and putting in our own personal touches. The first phase got us moved in and counting our blessings, and the second phase has just begun around here. (Here’s looking at you, Spring 2017.) This year I experienced my first cruise with the best gals, headed back to New York for Fashion Week (twice! – BRRR! That first trip was a COLD one.), ventured a bit more around California, and had a bachelorette weekend to remember with an amazing bunch. This year was trying at its worst and amazing at its best, and I’ve got nothing but love looking back at the goals and milestones reached in 2016. And you guys! Nothing, nothing, nothing but love for you guys for continuing to follow along on this journey and supporting me more than you ever know along the way. I started this blog back in 2011 as a way to chat all things clothing, shoes, bags, beauty, travel, and anything in between with fellow fashion lovers, and you guys have given me five amazing years (and counting!) of doing just that. To the amazing readers that constantly come back, leave comments, and give the best feedback; to the brands that I’ve been SO lucky to work with this year; to the beyond talented photographers that I now call friends; and to the local spots that I just can’t get enough of, here’s one giant THANK YOU from me to you. I can’t keep this little blog going without all of you, and I couldn’t be more thankful for this little safe space in the craziness of 2016. So cheers to you guys, and cheers to 2017 – let’s kick this one off with a bang, shall we?

Happy New Years to you and Eric! I read your blog everyday, even though I might not always comment–resolution 2017–comment on My Styles Diaries daily. We were so honored to be at your wedding in April–it was perfect, in spite of the weather. Sorry that we missed seeing you for Christmas. Hope to see you in 2017, when you come back to Louisiana. <3 xoxo
