Best of December 2016

I don’t know how it felt for you, but to me, December flew by like nothing. What seems like last week, we were still in the US (we actually left June 29, so it wasn’t THAT recently 😉 ), and now here we are in 2017!

I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and enjoyed the first day of the new year! Before we delve into new content for 2017, I want to take a quick look back at the Best of December 2016. {I also have a look back at the entire year 2016 right here.}
