2013: In Retrospect.










Am I the only one who let out a sigh of relief when the clock struck 12? 
To be completely honest, 2013 was tough. By the time it ended the weight of the year felt so heavy on my soul that I was beyond ready to let it go. (I also know a new calendar year doesn't quite erase or fix anything-that part is solely up to me.) But regardless of the struggles I faced this past year, I'm thankful for all the lessons. 
I believe that even the challenging moments are beautiful. Every second that I'm lucky enough to walk this earth, no matter how dark, is wonderful.
Of course, it wouldn't be fair of me to say the year was only full of trials- there were a lot of fun moments too. I made new friends, reconnected with old ones, & lost a few along the way. I danced & I sung & I let my heart guide me towards new adventures- a few of which I'm sharing with you. 
I'm so thankful for these moments; for the inside jokes & untold stories that they hold. & for the lovely people in these frames- thank you for making these memories so special. 
I lived as fully as I could, & now I'm letting it go. I'll take with me only the memories I've made & the lessons I've learned. 
So here's to 2014. To plenty of new adventures. To chasing stars, drinking champagne, dancing 'till dawn, & most importantly- to happiness

With love, 
-Elle
