It's been an incredible 4 years and I am beyond thankful for all the amazing people I've met along the way. I can't wait to see what 2018 and beyond has in store for everyone! To all the ridiculously amazing people I've met on the road: thank you for taking me in for this great season of my life. I would love to stay in touch with every one of you and hopefully see you again soon!"
