Cinnamon Beach St. John

 Watched my best friend from high school marry the love of her life in St. John.

Looking back on 2015 puts a huge smile on my face. What a year! It’s probably been my best year yet. Getting to marry my best friend of over 10 years was truly magical and a day I will never forget. Planning our wedding was stressful, but everything that came along with it was so meaningful. Being able to spend time with my loved ones during my bachelorette party and bridal shower will be forever cherished. Business saw a great boost this year. I was finally able to live out a goal of mine when I quit my job and took Crystalin Marie full time. It had been in the works for a long time, but to finally see it play out, was/is pretty freaking awesome. Watching my high school best friend get married in St. John was the perfect way to end this incredible year.

2015 could not have been a success without my husband, family, friends, and all of you, so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. As mentioned in my previous post, things are already in the works to make 2016 one for the books. I can’t wait to share all the exciting content coming your way.

Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year!
