Last year, I commemorated the end of the year with a letter to myself (read here!) explaining what I had to look forward to and the lessons that I learned. I’m hoping to make it an annual tradition!

December was filled with highlights. I finally finished my Master’s program (even though I don’t walk at graduation until March…WOOOOOO!). I reached one of my long-term goals of the year (more on that below). I had some fun experiences with new people (including a holiday DIY day with Lex, featured in the post picture), and
It’s the last day of 2018! Did you know that it is a Southern tradition to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day? The tradition signifies growth and prosperity for the next year. I remember my grandmother, who grew up in North Carolina, would prepared the dish on NYE when I was younger. My friend
