Adele īs happy news tops off a whirlwind 18 months for the young. 

Can someone help me to understand this sentence?

4 Jul 2012      

United States

"top off" - to bring to a climax or high point
"whirlwind" - a very hectic and exciting time (18 months in this case)
The final exam topped off a quarter of intense learning.
We had a whirlwind vacation - 18 cities in two weeks.
