{happy new year}

This post seems almost surreal for me to write. 2012 was absolutely, without a doubt, the most incredible year of my life. I keep seeing sayings on Pinterest, reminding me to be happy where I am for a moment, even while I continue to look at the future. I really have to take those to heart. 

At this time last year, and for the majority of 2012, I was pretty miserable. Miserable from 8 to 5, Monday through Friday, that is. I'm still so used to dreading Monday mornings or waking up to make that 45 minute commute. But it's over with, and sometimes I can't believe it. 

Everything about my life, and I honestly mean everything, is amazing right now. How can I ever say how thankful I am for every single thing I've been blessed with this past year?

For the first time in my life, I have a job that I completely love. Mainly because it's a job that I created for myself. 

My marriage is as strong as it's ever been. 

Though it may not last forever, we aren't concerned about money. 

My home is comfortable and warm and actually feels like home. 

I am closer to my friends than I've been in a long time. 

And I have the sweetest, most adorable dog on the face of the planet. 

I truly have nothing to worry about and everything to be thankful for. I'm terrified though; terrified that it's all going to end. I know that life won't always be smooth sailing, so I'm trying, at least for the moment, to be happy. And I hope that 2013 is just as wonderful, if not more so, than 2012.

I hope that 2013 is everything you want it to be, and more. So, here's to your dreams and mine.
