Gosh isn’t it just crazy how 2016 creeped up already? I absolutely cannot wait to see what 2016 holds. I am so excited to see how God uses me and every single one of you! I decided today to share a reflection of 2015 with some of my favorite posts from this year. Love + Be isn’t even a year old yet (crazy) but it has most certainly changed my life!
2015 started with a whirlwind of emotions. It was full of heartbreak, questions and what seemed like tests, but by the end all of these things turned into blessings and opportunities. It is amazing to see how that happens (and it always does). It was by far the most stressful year of my life going through heartbreak, working crazy long weeks, a big move and just trying get my feet on the ground as my first year sans college. But I could not be more thankful for all of this because I would not be where I am today without going through each of them.
By the end of 2015, I had and still have never felt more comfortable in who God created me to be. I cannot even fathom how much I have grown just in these last few months and so much of it I have you all to thank for that. There have been a million and one lessons I learned this year but the two that stand out the most is kill everyone with kindness and never let fear get in the way (ever)!
Favorite Posts of 2015
Going through every post from 2015 I keep thinking oh I like this one or oh I absolutely love this one until my list included almost every post. But trust me I narrowed it down to my absolute 5 favorite posts of the year. Drum roll please…
First, my absolute favorite post was ‘Adventures on Fleek,’ it was absolutely so fun writing and it was the start of my favorite series. There is no better way to find joy and enjoy the little things than creating adventures. It does not matter how big or small they are, you will have the time of your life!

Next, would be giving you a little glimpse into my workspace. I love to decorate as much as the next girl but this was an extra special project I took on. In August, I started working from home part-time and I knew I needed a space to fuel my creativity and productivity. I could not be happier with how it turned out. Read the post here
Next would be my Charleston posts. It is my absolute favorite city and I am so thankful that my best friend and I could take a little girls weekend to soak it all up. The trip was full of the cutest coffee shop (we went two days in a row), lots of laughing, great food and lots of walking. I absolutely cannot wait to go back. You can read my travel guide here, my two style posts here and here. The two style posts have funny play by plays of the trip which just a little added bonus.
Third, companies that matter which actually is a conglomerate of a few posts. I have found and was lucky enough to work with some amazing companies this year, most of which are companies that giveback. There is something so special about companies that are about helping the greater good and those who cannot help themselves. You can read about them here, here, and here
Fourth, this post was actually not written by me, it was written by one of my best friends, Katie, who truly has a heart for traveling. Her pictures are stunning and she far outdid herself with here amazing travel takeaways. Wanderlust is going to be a big theme for Love + Be in 2016 which I cannot wait. Read the article here
Last but certainly not least, my last favorite post goes to my ‘attitude is everything post.‘ This post was a big theme for me last year. Life is never ever easy but having a positive attitude and mindset can truly make a huge difference. Read the post here
These 5 (+) posts are by far my favorite posts of 2015. Stop by Friday for my favorite looks of 2015! Thank you so much for stopping by and so much love for all of you!
