Goodbye 2014

Another year has passed and it is another year that I am thankful for. Last year was a mix of truly amazing events and really shitty ones. The good obviously outweighing the shitty times, making the bad nothing more than moments I can gladly push to the side

In May, for the first time in my life, I left the States and ventured to England. I fell in love with that country, it's people, history and it's architecture. I even went to Scotland!

I made a new friend this year too and I am extremely thankful for her friendship. Megan has shown me such kindness and is a beacon of light when I cannot seem to find good in the world. Brooke and I have become even closer and it warms my heart to know that she knows all of my secrets and doesn't judge me for any of it.

One of the hardest things this year was dealing with the loss of my grandfather. I miss him terribly but I've found that missing the dead is hard but necessary in order to keep their memory alive.
Turning thirty hasn't brought some magical handbook with it. But I've learned day by day, little by little, that I can accept the reality of myself and other people. 

My only goals this year are to post some photos from my England and Scotland trip (on here) and to print some out and frame them. I have the perfect spot in mind...

Here's to twenty-fifteen.


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful year! I too have had a moment where I thought my husband and I weren't going to make it (5 years ago seems so long now!). That taught me that as long as we loved each other still and put effort into the relationship, we could get through it. I'm so glad we did, and that you both did too :) happy new year xo

    1. It is comforting knowing that someone else went through something similar in their marriage, and that they too, came through on the other side (the good side). I'm glad you learned that as well. Thank you for your comment, Yelle. It means a lot to me. Happy New Year doll face.
