Peace out, 2013.

The time has come. Time to look back on the past year and see what I've done. I'm at that point in my life where I think 6 months ago was last week and I can't figure out where all of my time has gone.  Well, this is what I have to show for it. A little look into my life for the past year will hopefully satisfy all of you that are there when I take pictures that you never see. When I started this post, I was thinking about how little I did in the past year. Then I looked through my catalog and felt completely different about it. I may not have traveled the world or jumped out of planes, but I'm proud of myself and all of my friends for what we've made it through in the past year. Hats off to all of you that finished school, completed your thesis shows, worked your asses off to get the perfect shot, started a business, got the perfect job, married the loves of your lives, and found the beauty in the world around you. Last year at this time, we got some not so good, completely unexpected news that turned my world upside down. Looking through my photographs from that time reminded me of all of the feelings that I felt then. So thankful that it wasn't worse, but so scared of what to come. Thinking back on it now, I couldn't be happier for all of the strength and support of family and friends. This year, we're all here. We're all healthy. I couldn't be happier and I couldn't be more proud. I have a kick ass family and an amazing boyfriend.

Looking forward to this year, I hope you all take some time to take long walks, breath in deep, change someones life, be healthy, be happy, and love like you've never loved before. It's a fresh start today. You can be who ever or whatever you want. Me? I can't wait to spend as much time with my family and friends as possible, have countless girls nights, dance my butt off, get strong, be healthy, laugh a lot, finish school, continue to be in love with my best friend, see the world, and make myself the best possible me I could ever imagine. Here's to you, 2014. Ready or not, here I come.
