2016 Year in Review

2016. What a year. This year kind of stunk, didn’t it? It feels like the world is a little off kilter these days, so I think it’s important to look back at the things that actually went well this year. Here are some of my (& your!) favorite moments of 2016.


This photo sharing app continues to me one of my favorite ways to share moments from our trips. Here are the Instagram posts that you enjoyed the most this year – clearly you’re all fans of shades of the color orange, Canada & the UK! Make sure you’re following me on Instagram to see photos you won’t see anywhere else.
