2013 started out rough for me. i was still going through a lot of different emotions, and i really had to lean on my parents, especially my mom. not a day goes by that i don't think about how grateful i am for my mom and dad and all their love and understanding. i'm grateful for all my loved ones, you know. my sisters, my girlfriends, my grandparents, my co-workers, etc. they've all been so supportive, and my eyes have really opened thanks to their collective advice and encouragement. as i was going through my photos for my year-in-review, i realized that despite quite a few low-points, disappointments, and heartbreaks, i've had a really amazing year. each memory is so special and i'm so glad that i have the photographs to look back on and remind me. there was quite a bit of love and adventure, learning and growth, and a whole lot of everything in between. i'm a better person in spite of one of the hardest years of my life, and i'm looking forward to making a million more brilliant memories and going on a million more beautiful adventures.
goodbye 2013, hello 2014!
