happy new year || december 2016 budet

Happy near year, friends! I know it’s super cliche by now, but can.you.believe.it’s.2017.already? Yep, this is goodbye to you, 2016, and good riddance. I hope y’all had a great holiday and new year! Here’s to hoping that 2017 brings happiness, peace, togetherness, and super amazing thrifted goodies.

December was a fun month. There was a lot of thrifting and a lot of shopping, both Christmas/holiday and otherwise.
