Here's to a new chapter — and whatever lies beyond.

Sixteen. The one number with many meanings — coming-of-age, Molly Ringwald, your driver's license, a song by Ringo Starr.  

Add a twenty in front and you have a year — 2016. And for me, this means business. No, not the Wall Street, 9-5 cubicle kind, but the productive, returning to your roots kind. For a while, I left this blog abandoned. Blank drafts, unanswered emails, far too many empty promises. Liberating at first? Mais, oui. However, I'm not the type to sit idly on the sidelines — I couldn't stand to play pretend anymore and claim to be a "blogger" when I was truly off the grid. 

That's when the new year kicked in, otherwise my (metaphorical) knight in shining armor. A clean slate is exactly what I needed to start blogging again. That, and a dose of inspiration — which is, luckily, something I've managed to unearth from every corner of the spectrum. Seeking creativity in friends, soundtracks, travels, visuals is all part of why I'm here once again. 

Direct your sight to the new layout — the aesthetics are different, but for a good reason: a fresh beginning.

Ask what sixteen means to me and I'll say, '16 is the return to the blogosphere with new content, stories, and adventures to come.
