Happy Friday for the very last time in 2016.
- I have no pictures from Christmas, but it was a good time. Love those Williamson’s.
- NPR came up with a list of the best books of 2016. My personal favorite read this year was “When Breath Becomes Air.” Beautiful story and beautifully written.
- Many moons ago when I was a senior in college, my roommate Bailey and I had a rare Friday night where we opted to stay in sweats and watch a movie over socializing with friends. I distinctly remember us calling it our “unsocial night” (21-year-old Kat would be sad to hear that many of my nights as a 27-year-old could be categorized as “unsocial”…and I live for such nights). Anyhow, we watched “Crazy, Stupid Love” and it was OK—but I remember wishing the entire storyline revolved around Emma Stone + Ryan Gosling’s characters. So naturally, being a fan of the ever-delightful Emma and ever-beautiful Ryan, I was pumped to see the new musical LaLa Land. And you guys, it did not disappoint. I saw LaLa Land, and I loved LaLa Land. The music was amazing, the scenery was beautiful, and Ryan + Emma…I mean, C’MON. I also loved the ending (though I’ve heard some people weren’t fans).
- Oh, resolutions. Such good intentions often get thrown in the trash after a few months, huh? Still, I love the idea of bettering one’s self in the new year…of trying harder, being better, doing a little more in the upcoming 365. I found this article interesting, though it mostly revolved around fitness resolutions.

Happy New Year, friends. Hope 2017 is the best one yet.
