Saying goodbye to a year to remember: 2017 in review

2017 was a bold year. One of adventure, travel, discovery, chasing dreams and finding out even more who I am. It was a new year of tackling fears, walking in faith, moving across the country to New York City and working in a huge Manhattan newsroom I didn’t think I’d

Christmas in Walt Disney World

Over my college winter break vacation, my family spent our December holidays down south.  We were a little hesitant about visiting Disney during this time because that’s when the parks are expected to be the busiest, but after
