How was 2017 for you?
La Louma: 2017 has been the best year of my life so far. I know more, I have greater perspective, and my sense of curiosity and gratitude have both heightened, and thus my experiences and relationships have become more and more meaningful. From the big once-in-a-lifetime milestones to the tiny details of everyday life, I see reality with increased clarity and am thankful for every minute of it.
