if i could break 2012 down into three words they would be airplanes, atonement, & aspire.
airplanes: i was lucky enough to travel a lot this year!
vegas, st.george (three times), texas, georgia & new york.
i had a great time at each of these places. i was able to see so many amazing sites, eat wonderful food (oh, and i think i've turned into a foodie this year) and soak in each location. i literally fel in love with traveling and can't wait to travel in 2013!
atonement: this past year i have gained a deeper appreciation for the continuous atonement of christ. he is so merciful and so loving. his plan is so perfect. he is always there for me and loves me no matter what. i am thankful for my knowledge of this and the strength my faith brings me.
aspire: i have learned that whatever i aspire to be, i can be that. it takes hard work, faith and sometimes sweat. but i am glad that this year has molded me into who i have aspired to be. sometimes life gets tough but i know if i keep plugging through and remember that whatever i set my mind to i can achieve it.
this year has made me stronger & made me realize what i am grateful for.
now i am going to close this chapter of life..
