2013 was a beautiful balance between all the great stuff that makes this life so wonderful with all the terrible, no-good-stuff that comes with it.
whoooooooooooooooooosh...it knocks the wind out of me when i think about everything that happened.
and tears brim my eyes because i know there was absolutely, positively no way that i could have gone through any of it, had patricio not offered his arm and helped keep me steady, never wavering in his love and devotion to not only me, but my parents and my brothers.
you make me so grateful that marriage exists, patrick.
farewell 2013. you came too fast, but i'm glad you're not sticking around. (that's what she said?)
i have a lot to do in my last year of being a 20-something so 2014 take your sweet time rolling on through.
