2017: year highlights

So I was going to do a long year in review posts where I go through each month and highlight what happened. But 2017 was a pretty hard year for me and it was just making me frustrated to do that post. So instead, I wanted to post the highlights of what happened, and the pictures related to it.

  1. You had such an awesome 2017!! Congrats on getting into law school and getting a puppy but my favorite are probably you seeing the O’s hit 7 runs in the first inning! That’s awesome and incredibly rare.

    I went to Camden Yards to see them 3 years ago and I saw 2 home runs. Not as impressive, but my first time seeing an HR in person. πŸ™‚

  2. Congrats on law school! And all of your other adventures, too. Concerts, gingerbread houses, potatoes, morality discussions in the middle of the night….2017 may have been pretty hard, but it looks as if there were plenty of good spots, too! πŸ™‚ Hopefully 2018 will be even better for you!
