A Look Back at 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Wow. 2013 was quite a year. It was a year of big changes, love, and growing, lots of growing. It was the year I got engaged and experienced the most wonderful feeling in the world, the feeling of love so intense I couldn't imagine life without this person. Too cheesy? Sorry :) It was a year of so many big changes and so many wonderful events. It was a year of lessons and learning. It was a year of really getting to know my true self, and accepting it 100%.
