New Years EVE

It was the perfect end to a fantastic year.

This year more than any other was full of firsts.
And if you haven't gotten that, you probably haven't been reading my blog.

The other night Aereille and I were sitting on the couch at her parents house, thinking over life and our plans for New Years Eve. We decided on attending EVE, a party in downtown Salt Lake City to spend the last few hours of 2012.

And as the end of the year comes, as is for most people we began to think back on all the things we had done. For Aerielle and I, that was a heck of a lot of things. Seeing as how we spent so much time together and became each other's best friend, when we wen't back to look at each of our years, they lined up pretty much exactly. 

Then we made a list.

A list of the top 25 things we did this year, in chronological order.

It is often emotional to write blog posts. This is my place to delve into my soul and bring out what I want to share to the world. Sometimes it takes a little longer to share certain things, but in the end I have no regrets for sharing what I have on this blog for the past 3 and a half years. This blog post was a little closer to overwhelming than to emotional. But in a very good way.
The one thing I learned from 2012 more than any other is this:

And that is the simple and honest truth.

I love you guys, really so much. Thank you, each and everyone of you for being a part of my life.
Happy New Years!
