Hello everyone! Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day for me, so my year-end blog post is going to be tonight instead of tomorrow. I found out today that Gilly is, in fact, closing tomorrow and not on the 11th, so I'm visiting tomorrow morning. That store is like my home. I've spent so many hours there and I'm going to miss it so much. I also have a NYE party to attend! I'm going to wear a gold dress and look and feel like a goddess. A goddess with a cute butt.
So, let's get serious and talk about 2013 for a minute here. First off, thank you a million times over to every single person who has read even just one entry this year. I keep this blog mainly for myself, since it's not like it has a wide readership, so every time someone decides to read it, it feels really special. We're at over 26,000 page views today, which blows my mind.
2013 was incredible. I did something I have wanted to do for so, so many years, which was traveling to England and Ireland. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and I want to go back to Ireland this summer. (I very well might!)
I met one of the most wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and that's Eoin. We started talking in January of last year and met in August, and I cannot express in words how lucky I feel to know him.
I started school again this fall, which has been pretty good actually. It also means I get to attend SSA meetings, which is like hanging out with a second family.
I got a new job in September and left it just a few days ago. I found out that my job of 1.5 years is closing, which still breaks my heart. I volunteered with baby birds and fell in love with them.
Thank you all for helping to make this a wonderful year. This blog has been such a perfect constant in my life...even when things are crazy, I know I have this. I have blogged daily since January 10th, 2010. That is four years of my life. 1,450 days. 2014 will be year five, and I can't believe that. I never, ever thought I would blog daily for this long, but I'm so happy that I have. I so happy for the friends that I've made and for the memories on which I can always look back.
To Lexa, Jon, Eoin, Anfo, Kady, and everyone else who has shaped this blog, thank you. And to everyone who helped shape 2013 for me, thank you. I'll see you all in 2014.
