I’m pretty sure I said this about 2016, but 2017 was definitely the best year of my life. So many incredible things happened and I can safely say that I’ve never felt happier in my entire life. I’ve been absolutely loving reading everyone’s ‘2017 highlights’ posts so I really wanted to put my own together to commemorate such a fab year.
My highlights might not necessarily be in order but if you’ve been following me around these parts for a while then I’m sure you’ll recognise some of my favourite memories from 2017!
