Favorite Memories of 2016

Inspired by @mia.
  1. Moving to Boston
    I like this place. View from my home.
  2. Traveling to Iceland
    Iceland is a magical country. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
  3. Hiking a glacier
    Absolutely thrilling
  4. Meeting Cherry and Marc in Iceland
    Cherry is a Ph.D student in the Netherlands and has traveled to 30+ countries. Marc is from Singapore and gifted himself an Iceland trip for his 30th birthday. I met them both in the kitchen of the hostel I was staying in. My trip wouldn't have been the same without them.
  5. Exploring Leeds and England for the first time
  6. Meeting Elliot
    In 2011, Elliot and I met on Tumblr. Five years after exchanging emails, messages, and letters we decided to meet with a twist of fate. I had a business trip in the UK and he decided to take the train down. Our story is for another day, but he makes everything better. He's light and grace.
  7. Us.
  8. Visiting and exploring London with Elliot
    It was very dreamy.
  9. Making these huge cookies from scratch
    A big accomplishment.
  10. Another one.
  11. Reuniting with my friends from college
    Grilled cheese sandwiches, Popsicles, and deep talks. We live so far away from each other that it was grand.
  12. Showing my coworker Clare around Boston. She's from the UK and this was her first ever cannoli.
  13. Visiting Acadia National Park in Maine
    Took this picture while screaming, "Please come back up!"
  14. Blinded by nature's beauty.
  15. Getting festive with my friends
    A great night of dancing and spinning.
  16. Learning that being vulnerable isn't a weakness.
  17. Learning that it's okay to take a break from something you love.
  18. Learned that I'm capable of loving someone else fully.
  19. I enjoyed myself this year.
