Goodbye 2018 It's Been Swell

Monday, December 31, 2018


What a bittersweet year 2018 has been. I mostly looked like Stitch here when I wasn't smiling for a camera. I lost my job, but then found an even better one. We lost a great friend/squad member, but continued to grow some amazing friendships. My dog passed away, but Mary's dog has adopted me and always makes sure I'm okay. Mary's brother passed away, and Mary and her family are still mourning his genuine life. I trooped a lot, made people laugh and smile, and I was brave. I smiled through a lot of tears, and have been spending a lot of time healing from past trauma.
I'm really hoping that 2019 will be a little more gentle.

I used Snapchat a lot, and Instagram story. I love filters and the cat ears are my favorite! I'm still on Facebook, but it's hard to keep up with people especially because of the dumb algorithm. I even jump on my old Tumblr from time to time and Twitter always seems to be a good old faithful place to see what’s happening in the world. All other new social media platforms seem to come and go. 

Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures from this year. I have so many that I love that it was hard to not post 100 pictures on this post! So I tried to narrow it down. Some are professional, most are just cell phone pics. I'm more into making memories these days then trying to be a super model.
