I have a great feeling about 2014.
The above picture of me was taken on New Year’s Eve 2011, our first New Year’s in Wyoming. (I’m enjoying a Modelo and waiting for a tasty burrito.) Stephen was working that night and I had just gotten done work, so we figured that all we would need was a good meal + beer to ring in the New Year.
Thirteen days after this picture was taken, my dad passed away.
I remember sitting at that restaurant feeling like we had the entire world at our fingertips…. and while the year started off quite rocky, I still credit 2012 as being one of the best, worst, most beautiful, difficult, crazy, and simple years of my life. Life was so raw; I felt connected to every single day. I woke up, accepted reality, and forced myself to keep moving.
I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I have this same feeling about 2014. I have a feeling that it will be another beautifully adventurous year, full of new experiences, new friendships, and new beginnings.
Who’s with me?
So far, 2014 has been great, although that’s probably because I was lucky enough to be on vacation for most of it!
