it's been a long december

here i am... rock you like a hurricane. so i'm back after my blogging hiatus, refreshed and ready to stay in touch a little bit better. i've kind of been in my own little world for a minute, but i've got my feet on the ground now, and the timing couldn't be more perfect. it's new year's eve after all. i typically see my birthday as the time for change, as it is my biological new year, but i agree with heather's post today. every day is a good day to bend, break, mend, and alter anything and everything in our lives. and i have a feeling that this january 1st will feel like getting out of a long, hot shower, after you've washed it all away. i remember turning over a leaf sometime at the end of the summer, but i think i only got it halfway before i gave up. and the other night i was having a difficult but necessary conversation with someone when it struck me: the leaf is for sure all the way over now. the words, "hot damn! i'm a grown-up!" actually crossed my mind. goodbye, 2007. time for an even-numbered year and an even better me.
things to remember from the twelve months past:
1. honesty really is the best policy
2. nothing in the world replaces a best friend
3. it's never too much information if someone really loves you
4. i am TOTALLY worth it
5. you will always, always reap what you sow
things to forget:
1. not a damn thing. don't forget any of it. : )
okay, i hope everyone has a safe and happy new year's eve, and i will catch you guys on the flipside, when i will be a much better blogger. holla holla. xoxo
