Cheers to 2015 & now to 2016!

Happy New Year, friends! Are you ready to say farewell to 2015? What are you looking forward to in 2016?

I’ve had a fun and busy year of travel, a new job, general happiness and exciting adventures, and I hope that 2016 continues in such good fashion. A few favorites of 2015, in instagram form (as was the theme of 2015, it seemed):

Travels to New York City, Toronto, Quebec City. Montreal, and Washington, D.C.

And of course, exploring my beloved Burlington and all of Vermont.

Professional preservation highlights include starting a new job as a Preservation Planner with VHB in April, and leading the Emerging Professionals session at the National Trust for Historic Preservation conference (#pastforward) in Washington D.C. in November.

For 2016, I’m looking forward to writing more essay-style posts, short and long, as opposed to the photo-centric posts of this year and revisiting important topics that I’ve touched upon throughout the years. I’m also hoping to continue to meet more of you and grow our preservation connections. Sound good? Is there anything you’d like to see/read? Have a topic you want discussed? Let me know. I continue to blog because of the community I’ve found in all of you and the friendships that developed, and all of the knowledge that you share with me and each other. When someone makes a new connection to historic preservation, it warms my heart and soul. That’s why we preservationists are here, isn’t it?

What are your favorite accomplishments of 2015? What do you hope for in 2016? Big plans? Adventures? A quiet year?

Enjoy the holiday. Hug your loved ones. Call your parents. The usual well wishes. Cheers to a healthy and happy 2016!
