365 Days: Accomplished

IMG_4308

365 days. 365 posts. That was the challenge I set out for myself at the beginning this year. And what a year it has been. I have blogged for the entire year, once a day, through every up and down I faced-and I am so glad I did. It was a year of triumphs and defeat, depression and joy, tears and smiles.

I’ve learned some of the ropes of university, embraced a part of my identity that I had previously feared, landed my first ‘real-world’ job, and fallen in love. That is the broadest overview possible, but this blog encompasses my year of trials and successes.

It has been such a journey to share, and I have loved the comments and feedback I have received from everyone-it has never failed to make me smile.

In the New Year, I think I will be switching to a twice a week posting system, as every day did sometimes prove to be a struggle. But I’m not going anywhere-drop me a line to say hello or if you have suggestions for things you want to see!

May your 2016 be filled with joy and love and the best of luck 🙂

Happy New Year!

 

The Bruised Sunrise

  
In the long and peaceful night

I thought of you. 

Frigid wind tangling itself in my hair

So similar to your fingers

That wrap themselves in my hair

And dance over my skin. 

The sky slowly lightened over the sleeping city

Like your eyes slowly opening 

In the early mornings when I am wrapped around you. 

How glorious the sunrise was

Bruised colors pirouetting across the clouds

And rays of sunlight piercing through our sleep saturated haze. 

I woke up looking into your languidly blue eyes 

And felt myself at home in your arms.
