2015 - My Year in Pictures

2015 was a great year for me and it was full of some big milestones. For one, I took my first trip as a woman, actually flying and travelling across country in girl mode. It made me realize that I could not only pass, but also function in society perfectly well as a woman. Secondly, I had the serious talk with my partner who is so amazingly supportive that I'm blown away everyday by how awesome she is. Next I came out to all my friends on Facebook and got a phenomenal response. And in November, I started HRT and laser hair removal.

Plus at work I got a big raise and a big ol' promotion. So that's pretty cool as well.

Here are some of my favorite photos from 2015.

At a party with all my friends. My brief foray into blonde back in January.

Out shopping at the Macy's flagship store on 34th Street in Manhattan. 
Craft beers with a friend at Saint Gambrinus bar in Brooklyn. 
Selfies on the Brooklyn Promenade. 
Visiting Governors Island.

Enjoying a day out at Pier A in lower Manhattan. 
Flying for the first time as a girl!
At the South Carolina Statehouse grounds. My first trip down South as a girl and my first time really living as a girl!

Shopping in South Carolina. Just another regular girl in the South!
Even I was surprised at how comfortable I felt, even in a unfamiliar environment.

Doing a fashion photography shoot in DUMBO, Brooklyn. 

Ready for a cocktail party with friends. Showing off my Betsey Johnson dress & red heels. 
Partying with friends. Just another one of the girls. 

Autumn selfie in Brooklyn. Just after my first appointment to get hormone therapy. 

Out of the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights on a warm autumn evening. 

Jeans and a sweater. Trying to fit in as just another regular girl in some casual autumn clothes. 

Out in Manhattan for Thanksgiving. 

My Thanksgiving day makeup. I was really pleased with it. 
Out on the Promenade in my cute winter outfit. 
In late December. Doing my best Mary Tyler Moore impression!
Looking back at 2015, I feel so blessed to have had such an amazing, fun and groundbreaking year. I'm so Thankful for my amazing partner, my wonderful friends and all the great community online who have followed me on journey. I feel super happy and so lucky to have an amazing life!

Okay, you know what else was great in 2015? I absolutely love that my two favorite movies this year are also two of the best reviewed and highest grossing movies. And I especially love that both are sci-fi action films with well written, three dimensional, non-sexualized, strong, independent, kick ass women as the leads! What a great year!

Now for some 2016 fun!
