Apologies and Back to School

First and foremost, I would just like to apologize for neglecting my blog, but things have been super duper crazy around here.  Next, I hope everyone had a great weekend; mine was great.  Chris came over to surprise me for birthday, which was really sweet because I knew NOTHING about it.  This is definitely going to be one busy week for me...I start school today, my 21st birthday is Wednesday; it just seems like a lot.  I will try my hardest not to neglect on here as much as possible, but I can't make any promises, because this semester I'm taking two writing classes which I'm sure will take up most of my time.  Anyway, hope y'all have a wonderful day!!

Friendship Anniversary & Appreciation

How many of you out there celebrate an anniversary with your best friends??  Well, I don't know about y'all, but I definitely believe in honoring the day you became friends with your best friend.  It's so weird because Chris and I have officially been friends for 2 years today, but it honestly seems like it's so much longer than that.  We've been through so much together the past year, it's a wonder we've made it this far, but I guess it's really true; THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR!!  So Happy Anniversary, Chris, you're the best guy friend any girl could ever have!!!

So while I was browsing my Facebook page yesterday, I came across a quote from Madea that one of my friend's had quoted.  "You can't really appreciate up until you've been down."  I agree with this quote 100%.  I'm not saying that I've never appreciated what I've had, but these past few years and the struggles have made me appreciate everything so much more.  I hate to revert to a cliche, but it's true when they say you really don't know what you've got until it's gone.  In the past few years, I've lost some loved ones; what I wouldn't give to hear their voices again.  Even after experiencing an illness in the family, it's definitely enough to make you appreciate everything in life...the ups, the downs, and the lessons learned.  Words cannot express how thankful and how much I appreciate my family!!!

It's 2012

It's the moment I'm sure we've all been waiting for...JANUARY 2012!!!  I don't why, but I'm super excited for January this could be because next month will be my 21st birthday or it could be because being from Louisiana during this time of the year is extra fantastical!!!  For example, a lot of people start planning their trips to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras in itself is a big deal to us down here, and then you also have the wonderful King Cakes that mostly everyone loves to eat from now until Mardi Gras is over with (I've already had two)!!!  Well, with all of that said, I'm ready to see whatever 2012 has in store for me!!!
