If I said it once, I said it at least 100 times. 2017 was a total blur.

My parents and grandparents always used to say each year passed faster than the last, and I never once believed them. Then 2017 happened.

I think I might get it now. (But don’t go any faster, okay, Father Time?)

The 2017 January + February Travelogue from Feast + West, including explorations in Charlotte, North Carolina, podcasts, video games, and winter happenings. Stop by the blog today to see the full list of things I did, ate, drank and saw in January + February 2017, plus a few things on my wishlist. (via feastandwest.com)

I usually try to recap the previous year before it’s over, but that just didn’t happen this time. And that’s okay because I’m doing it now!

I’ve been working on this post throughout the week, and it’s been so fun to look back at all the things I made and did last year. Below I am sharing our favorite recipes — yours and mine.

The perfect weekend trip to Asheville should include beer, cocktails, amazing food and gorgeous scenery. (via feastandwest.com)

I posted 90 photos on Instagram — probably not as many because I started using Instagram stories this year. I’m trying to get back in the game, though! (That’s my top nine posts above — guess my followers really like French macarons!)

Other highlights? Moving in with Chris, starting my job at Mediavine, adopting Julep (and fostering her four kittens), flying my first kite, attending my 10-year high school reunion and getting to spend the holidays with both of my siblings in town (a rare treat!).

Here on the blog, I shared 55 posts last year: 20 were cocktails, 20 were food recipes, 9 were travel posts and 2 were DIY projects.

Chris and I also created 11 videos for your viewing pleasure. My favorite? The Yule Mule! Chris’s favorite? Cheerwine Bourbon Slushies! (Those were my second choice).

I really feel like my photography improved a LOT this year, which makes me happy! I’ve been working on it a lot.
