Taking A Look Back at 2013

I can’t believe this year is already over. I feel like I was just ringing in 2013 with my best friends in Canton. It’s amazing what can happen in a year. My life is a million times different than it was then and it’s been hard to transition. I’m grateful for the lessons I learned, the people who touched my life, and those who have stuck by my side.

I didn’t start regularly blogging again until summer but here is a recap of 2013.

January:

– Jon and I broke things off shortly after the new year
– I visited Key West for the first time with my parents
