The Good 2016


Hope you're all ready for tonight's celebrations!

Considering all the bad of 2016, it's been difficult to remember the good. There seems to have been so much that's happened that I keep questioning myself when I say I did actually do something this year. I've been to Mexico and Crete and yet I can't believe that was only this year. So much has happened. Over time, whilst I've been blogging, I've probably mentioned a lot of it but I want to once and for all go over it so I can go out of the year on a good note.

good, the bad, the ugly, depression, travel, lifestyle, holidays, 2016, 2017, new year
