It’s taken a lot for me to sit down and write about 2016, not because I didn’t want to, but because I’ve read through what I normally write in my annual blog posts and feel like I share a little bit too much about my life, online.
Examples are my previous posts
2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 (you may want to read them considering they’re like sequels!)
But I guess being a “media personality”or as most like to say a “socialite” but mainly a semi-blogger, it’s ok to share, to some degree. And I do have friends who love reading these posts.
So I’ve decided to do something different, rather than giving you details of every month in 2016, I’m going to post pictures with short descriptions from every month that stood out for me.

I know this post is not my “usual” annual post – But these are the highlights of my 2016 that I wanted to share and as much as it took a real emotional and personal toll on me, the year wasn’t that bad after all!
Cheers to 2017 and hope that it’s everything you wish for it to be! 🙂
