2015 in Review

IMG_7012

I bought my first home. Holding the keys was surreal. Walking into it everyday is still surreal. I hope this butterfly feeling sticks around for a long time. Move in day was also one of the best days of my life. After years of dreaming, months of searching, 4 months reconstruction, and 6 hours of non-stop moving I looked around to see family and friends standing there with me in my new home I just started to cry. Tear s of relief, tears of happiness, tears of gratitude. They surrounded me in a giant hug and I had never felt so loved. It was a moment I’ll cherish forever.

One of my best friends of 10 years finally moved back to California this year and is going to be my roommate. One minute with her and I am already laughing my ass off. She gets me and I look forward to many Harry Potter and Twilight movie marathons!!
