Vicki Gunvalson is ready for 2017, but not before she looks back on how much her life has changed these past couple of years. The Real Housewives of Orange County entrepreneur shared her thoughts on where she's been and where's she's going on Instagram Monday.
The OG of the RHOC got deep in the caption to a photo of her lovely dining room table decked out for Christmas dinner. "Just finished with cleaning up the dishes from Christmas dinner and from opening presents. As I reflect on where I was last year to this year, it makes me realize more and more how our future is not in our hands or in our control. I am so grateful and thankful for putting my trust in God's plan for my life," Vicki wrote. "It was a beautiful [sic] for Christmas for me and my families and I hope yours was too.. Peace be with all of you as we close another chapter of our lives and head into 2017."
And oh, what a year it has been for Vicki. She tried to make amends with her friends last season of RHOC, but her relationships with Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge seemed past the point of no return by the time the Season 11 reunion rolled around. Vicki also continued to deal with her daughter Briana Culberson's health issues, which eventually led to her being diagnosed with lupus.
One of the biggest changes in Vicki's life over the past year has been that she has a new man in her life, boyfriend Steve Lodge, who was included in her family Christmas card this year.
Steve also gave Vicki an uber-luxe Louis Vuitton suitcase for Christmas this year. He's definitely a keeper, Vicki!
