I really love doing recaps for my readers, but I also love doing them for me. I mean, in the past four years, this blog has basically become my scrapbook of advice, family pictures, and life archive. I have shared with you my super-awesome-can't-top-this-one moments and my I'm-going-to-cry moments. With each passing year, I pour my heart, soul, and nails (long nails + key board = chipping) into this. AND I HAVE LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT.

So since I have round-about thanked you for continuing to read, here's 10 moments (good & bad) of 2017.

one || In January, my baby Choc-Chip was born. My dog, Ellie, has a sister, and Chippy is from her first litter. No, I don't believe in breeding, but it was an oops litter, and well, I just had to keep him. 

two || In May, I cut like 4 inches off of my hair. Why? Because I just felt like I needed a change.

three || In June, we said good bye to our kitty, moved into my parents' house, and I started a full-time gig doing therapy with children with Autism. 

four || In July, my parents and I took Lil Man to see his first RailCats game. The Gary SouthShore RailCats are a minor league baseball team a few towns over. Lil Man loved going to his first sports game, and now even wants to learn how to play. 

five || Also in July, I was able to attend SheddBLU at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. The night was so fun, and for such a great cause. I really hope I can attend next year too!

six || In August, Lil Man started FIRST grade!!! I can't believe that he is growing up so quickly!

seven || Also in August, I was in a car accident. I was rear-ended and then pushed into the car in front of me. As a result of the accident, I had to get a new car (mine was totaled), have extreme muscle spasms in my neck and shoulder which cause migraine-like headaches, am going to physical therapy, and can only work part-time at work. I am still taking one day at a time- the pain sucks, but I know that one day everything will be better.

eight || In October, I dyed my hair pink! #15 on my 101 in 1001 complete! YASSSS!

nine || In November, I was diagnosed with Bi-polar II, ADD, OCD, and Anxiety. I am doing better, the doctor is trying to find a drug cocktail that will mellow out my symptoms and once that happens, I will be one happy messed up camper.

ten || Finally in December, we celebrated Christmas with a family picture and welcomed in the New Year. 

There has been alot of great moments for 2017, as well as some low moments. But that comes with the territory. As a blogger, I love to share the happy moments, as well as the sad, so here I am being true to myself.

I am excited to see what the next year brings me!

How was your 2017????
