It's no secret Taylor Swift has had a pretty incredible 2015 (just look at Billboard's year-end charts!).

From blockbuster music videos to a star-studded world tour, it seems like the singer was everywhere this year, even moreso than before. Today (Dec. 13), on her 26th birthday, we look back at Swiftr's incredible 2015 using one of her favorite ways to communicate messages both big and small to fans: Instagram.

2. On the 1989 Tour, she brought out seemingly every celebrity under the sun (and then wrote super-sweet messages to them on Instagram afterwards).

6. Don't forget that time when she reminded everyone she was kicking ass on tour every single night.

7. Swift raised eyebrows -- and got everyone's approval -- when she dropped a buzzy "Bad Blood" remix featuring Kendrick Lamar. 

 

8. The singer subtlety introduced her relationship with Calvin Harris, as well as gave fans a whole new #goals to strive for.

 

Swan goals.

10. Even by Swift's high standards, she dubbed her total domination at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards "a dream sequence."

 

Last night was a dream sequence. I never forget that you're the reason my life is like this. Thank you for all of it.

11. Nobody tell Meredith or Olivia Benson.

 

I didn't know 'kangaroo selfies' were a thing. But they are and this is one.

12. "I said remember this moment In the back of my mind / The time we stood with our shaking hands / The crowds in stands went wild/ We were the kings and the queens/ And they read off our names/ The night you danced like you knew our lives/ Would never be the same."

 

Farewell, 1989 World Tour. --??
