• social_studioJess here. Laying in bed before my husband wakes (this is when I get some of my best thinking done in the early hours). Like most of you will at some point today, I'm reflecting on 2016. 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀
    It's amazing when you think about how much can change, what you can create + how many emotions you can feel within 365 days. I never set a word for this last year but if I had to some it up in just one (which if you know me, this is near impossible), I would say. . . g r o w t h.⠀⠀
    Both professionally + personally – 2016 was my year to grow into: ⠀⠀
    • a more patient wife (who knew the honeymoon stage is actually in your 2nd year?) ⠀⠀
    • a more thoughtful daughter + sister (this year I saw how blessed I truly am to have the family that I have) • a more intentional business owner (all thanks to our wonderful Socialites!)⠀⠀
    • a more confident teacher (this is my ultimate happy place, helping our Socialites connect the dots) 🙌🏻⠀⠀
    There are certainly areas in my life I would like to improve in: being a better friend, a better leader, focusing more on my health + reading more then just the latest social media news. 📚 Those of just a few goals I have on my mind for 2017. What about you, Socialite?⠀⠀
    2016, you gave the gift of growth + now I think it's time for all of us to THRIVE together. 💓 Those our my intentions as we countdown the new year, what are yours? How do you want the next 365 days to unfold?
