2015 in review

Whatta year.

2015, you were absolutely nothing like I expected, and that’s my favorite part about you. Almost every step of the way was completely a shot in the dark, taking me by surprise and for the first time, really showing me what it’s like to be in the real world. Good, bad, and snowy (thanks to Connecticut for the heaviest snowfall on record in 2015).

And now, a loving look back on what could only be described as one of the most spontaneously-amazing years of my life yet.
