A Year in Review….That’s a Wrap!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve devoted my year-end posts to updates regarding the To-Do list I created in lieu of a New Year’s Resolution to kick off 2016.

I wrote about the original idea to create my list in a post entitled, I Wish I May, I Wish I Might.

Of course, not everything I completed could be captured in photographs or had a story to go with it, so to end 2016, I’ve included my list below with my final updates.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year’s Eve!

See you in 2017!
