On December 31, 2011, I would have never, in ONE MILLION years have guessed that I would be blogging from my home in Orlando, Florida in exactly one year. I specifically remember being a grumpy gills on the way to the family party that night. I had no idea where 2012 was going to take me, all I could see was a college education that was never going to end and a boyfriend that was going to "leave me" in six months. I would have never guessed that I would have my dream job and that I would be as happy as I am 365 days later. I am beyond blessed to be doing what I'm doing and having the support that I do. Thank you friends and family for always cheering me on. Love you all, and may 2013 bring us even more happiness than 2012 (... wow. It's crazy to think things can get better than they are now, but I know they can, and WILL. Happy 2013, my friends! Let's do this).


  1. All I can say is you are a charmed life! Great year. Let's have another one!
