Best of 2017 / Goals for 2018

2017 has been a crazy year full of challenges, hellos and goodbyes, and major accomplishments for me. But as per the norm, I wanted to do a brief closing 2017 post and 2018 goals post before I really get in to the meat of how things are going to change with the blog next year which you’ve probably already been noticing off and on.
