Bye-Bye 2016, Welcome 2017!

2016 in one word? There isn’t one word. There is a phrase: well damn! This year brought new experiences, amazing memories, and so much love, shocking moments and of course, as every year some sad times as well. At the start of my year I was employed (30-45hours a week) as a nanny for three…
