Raise Your Glass!

Even if it is full of sparkling grape juice!

Happy New Year everyone!
This past year has been a whirlwind.  I've learned so much both academically and personally.  There have been so many ups and downs, ins and outs.  It makes me dizzy just thinking about all the stress and tears that I've gone through.  But, even more so, it makes me so thankful for all the wonderful, happy times I've shared with my family and friends.  I've gotten to know some amazing people in "real life" and in blog land.  In some ways I've changed so much since last year and in some ways, well, I'll always be the same little girl I've always been. 

Looking into the new year, there are many things I hope to accomplish.  Further my recovery, take down some lingering fears, grow stronger as a person overall, LOVE and FORGIVE like there's no tomorrow, get rich (well, maybe not...) and, of course, enjoy as much of this life as I possibly can.  Because when we get down to it, what could be more important?  We have today, right now, and that is the greatest thing we could ask for.

Here's to a great 2011!<3


  1. I love the last paragraph! So true. We have the here and now and need to live- truly live in it!! I often find myself taking days for granted and you helped me remember to take each second, each victory, every heartache, and all friendships with all that I am, not looking past them towards another day! I hope that made sense.

    Happy New Year's!
