My year in review collage was nice and all but I wouldn't have made it through the year without a couple great friends and this guy, especially this guy. He's my best friend and I wish we could eat mashed potatoes and drink Bailey's together whenever we want. I'm one lucky daughter. Here's to 2018, and to what will be a better year.


No one said it would be easy, no one said it would be painless, no one said it would be kind but they did say you will come out on the other side


hang in there
