Hard to believe, but the year is almost over, and I think we all can agree it came quicker than expected. So maybe you didn't get a chance to try out that hot new restaurant you've been eyeing every day on your way to work, or maybe you never had a second to venture out of the city for a hot minute, or maybe you haven't even been able to give yourself a day to just do you. Well, nows your chance.
A new year brings new opportunity. A fresh chance to actually do those things you keep putting off. And while yes, I'm sure there are a ton of not-so-exciting items that belong at the top of your 2017 to-do list (hello, gym), I think the first couple of weeks should be dedicated to things that are actually...wait for it...fun.
