2013 had brought with it a great mix of emotion for me.
I traveled to New York, Colorado (twice) as well as Ireland.
New York (February)
I celebrated my 25th birthday!
I was able to be a part of one of my best friend’s wedding.
The love and relationship between me and the boy has continued to grow and develop in new and amazing ways.
We even graduated this year! Him from Law School and me from my Masters!
I was able to see my sister create life in a way that completely blew my mind. I saw the life of this little child bring two families and two people tremendous joy.
Unfortunately that joy only lasted 9 months, 9 hours and 43 minutes, but the love that little girl shared with the world is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. She left this world far too early, but brought our families, friends and everyone whose life she touched closer than I could have ever imagined.
But I ended 2013 by being able to see another one of my best friends get engaged to a truly amazing man.
I am also honored to be a part of their wedding!
I now move into 2014 with a heavy heart, but with the memories of a wonderful year and the hope that 2014 will bring with it some healing as well as even better memories to celebrate.
So here’s to 2014. Wishing you all an amazing New Year and I hope that your next year is even better than the last! : )
