Here's to a better 2016! Kaley Cuoco is thankful for all the support she's received this past year. The Big Bang Theory actress reflected on the "craziness" she's experienced — alluding to her divorce from Ryan Sweeting — in an Instagram post on Monday, December 21.

Cuoco, 30, shared the heartfelt message after finding an old photo of her grandmother and other loved ones. She wrote that finding such a throwback made her happy amid all the "drama" and "tears" of 2015.

"Every year my family has an incredible get together that involves everyone from grand parents, grandkids, second and third cousins, babies, tons of food and Christmas carols." she wrote. "There have been many precious lives lost over the years but even so, we still make this happen."

She added: "Thank you @eugeniamarrone for keeping the tradition alive! Someone showed me this photo last night. My Grams is right there in the middle."

ZaZa and I getting into the holiday spirit! ?☃????

Cuoco has been staying positive since ending her 21-month marriage to tennis pro Sweeting, 28, back in September. As Us Weekly exclusively revealed, she's now dating Arrow hunk Paul Blackthorne, 46. "It’s new," an insider told Us, "but she’s really excited about it."

The 8 Simple Rules alum is also getting into the holiday spirit. Last week, she wore fake antlers with her adorable horse ZaZa. On Monday, she treated herself to a flashy gift.

"After waiting this entire last year, my new incredible chandelier has finally arrived just in time for the holidays and I had to share!" she captioned via Instagram on December 21. "#epic #lightingiseverything @jeffandrewsdsgn #flowerseverywhere."
