Hello, 2016

Hello, 2016
Illumelation.com | Instagram Best Nine of 2015

So, here we are. Illumelation has been alive and well for one whole year. Time flies!

Thank you, 2015, for all that you taught me and all that you brought me. What a weird, wonderful year of saying yes to every opportunity that knocked, of learning how to push past my imaginary limits, of sparking connections with strangers-turned-friends, of exploring my family roots.

I will forever cherish all those I met, those I loved and, inevitably, those I lost during the year.

Although it often feels quite the opposite, the world is changing. Ignore the news. We are growing, progressing, slowly and beautifully. I have a good feeling about 2016.

New adventures, magical friendships, and amazing memories await us all. You ready?
