BEST OF 2016


Does anyone else feel like you blinked and 2016 has come and gone? I know for many (me included), this was a year filled with some extreme highs and a few low, lows. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We started our year in the mountains and ended the year on the beach. These bookend trips really rounded out my love for this year. Be sure to scroll for a few of my favorite highlights from this year.

I started A Dash of Details almost seven years ago as an outlet to learn design, photography and share my love of great style and I honestly do not know what I would do without this creative space. My love for photography, writing and styling keeps growing and it is because of you all that I continue to devote all of my extra time into growing and creating this space I love so dearly. I hit some major milestones I set for myself this year and I am feeling so grateful for everyone who has supported me along the way.  Stay tuned for even more fun in 2017! From the bottom of my heart, thank you :)

Getting Fit

This was the year of fitness. In January, I signed up for one of the hardest workouts I have done to date and met one of my best friends in the process.  Michelle started a killer class that involved the fundamentals of Crossfit, without any of the heavy lifting. I would like it to a HITT workout, or high intensity interval training. For the first half of the year, my routine was set. I went six times a week and started to notice changes in about 2 months.  I pushed myself harder than I ever had and I was in the best shape of my life.  To put it in perspective, I went from barely being able to run a mile to it becoming our warm up before class. Not only was I getting a great work out but I always made a best friend in the process.

Spending the Day in St. Barth’s with Mackenzie and Devon 

In January, Mackenzie invited me to go on a cruise to the Caribbean. By far our favorite day was spent in St. Barth’s. We laid on the beach and ate lunch at a darling spot just outside town.  I think we need to add it to our list of places to visit again in 2017.
