2015 in review - Instagram Highlights of my Year

It's the first day of 2016, a time to look back, reflect on the past year and make your resolutions for the new year. Although I haven't been blogging all throughout the year, I've been keeping my Instagram up to date with plenty of photos each month, detailing my whereabouts and little life updates. It's been a great way to document my experiences and looking back through them now really helps to see the things I've most enjoyed in 2015 and will be doing more of in 2016. Above are some of my favourite Instagram images and captions throughout the year, showing the highlights of each month of 2015.

Here you have it - my year summed up in my Instagram images. Selecting my favourite memories and physically writing out what I've enjoyed the most has reminded me of how grateful I am for all the things I have achieved and experienced and look forward to more to come in 2016. When you look at your life over a year's period, you begin to see the big picture and how great everything turns out in the end. Or as the saying goes "Everything is okay in the end...if it's not okay, it's not the end" ;)
