It’s New Years Eve! I can’t believe it! 2016 flew by, it had many ups and a few downs but I wanted to share my greatest memories of this past year!
Starting with the first photo- I created my blog in February of 2016, I had been following multiple fashion bloggers and always thought “I want to do that” so I did and I created IvoryRose. My blog is something that I am really proud of and I feel I am always trying to improve it and make it something everyone can enjoy! The first photo was taken at Disneyland, they were my first blog photos I have ever taken and they weren’t the best but my sister and I were trying, lol.
In April every year my family takes a trip to Mammoth Mountain for my dads birthday, its one of his favorite places to visit! I was finally able to wear my big furry pink coat that I can’t wear where I live because its way to hot! I love visiting Mammoth and spending time with my family.
June 2016, the year I graduated high school! I can’t believe it! I graduated along side my best friend of 12 years-Reese. We met in 2nd grade, I’m so glad we graduated high school together. My high school had almost 4,000 students at it so it was a very big, yet beautiful graduation! When they say “High School is the fastest 4 years of your life” they aren’t kidding, it flew by.
Over the summer my family took a vacation to Hawaii! The island of Oahu. This trip was definitely one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. We went because my brother is on two travel hockey teams so we were there for a tournament! We stayed a total of 14 days!! The first couple of days we stayed in Honolulu and it was full of tourists, shops, hotels and of course the beautiful ocean surrounding us! We moved to a condo in Ko O’lina and it was a totally different vibe over there, much quieter, less people, but of course still the same beautiful ocean! Im so glad we got to experience both atmospheres! We visited Pearl Harbor while we were there and of course the Dole Plantation! Basically we explored the whole island! I can’t wait to go back in a couple years, the next time the tournament is there again!
In August was my great grandmas 100th birthday party!! This was such a cool experience and as you can tell in the photo she was pretty excited about it as well! We love you great grandma! I can’t wait until your 101st birthday!
My first day of college also started in August! The picture is of my friend Kelsey and I, we had two classes together this last semester! I can honestly say I really enjoy college! I just can’t believe the first semester is already over! I am majoring in Communicative Disorders, in hopes to one day be a speech pathologist!
The last photo is from Christmas Eve this year! Christmas is my favorite holiday and is something I look forward to basically all year!! I love the colder weather, the Christmas music & movies, the time spent with family, basically everything about it! Every year on Christmas Eve my cousins, sisters and I dress up and go to my grandparents house, (this photo was taken of my sisters and I just before we left). On Christmas Day we go to my other grandparents house! I’m so sad Christmas is already over this year it felt like it went way to fast, but now its time to face the new year with new goals and resolutions!
Im on my way to Carmel for New Years Eve, What are you guys doing for NYE!?
I can’t wait to make new memories this year!
Happy New Year everyone! Have a safe and fun night & WELCOME 2017!!!
