28 Highlights {the ponytail diaries}

I thought about doing a big, look-back, reflection post because this past year was…pretty big. Even though it didn’t always feel like that, day-to-day, of course. But then I was thinking about how I would approach it and what I would say and then I thought…it’s just about moments. Big, small, in between.
