For 2019, I don't have specific resolutions because no one ever follows through with them anyway. But as I've been looking through my photos from this year, there is one that I think captures the feeling I'm aiming for for this coming year.

Happy New Year, Jennaroo! I think you’ve learned a lot about life and yourself this year, all of which will serve you well in 2019. I miss you a lot and can’t wait to see you again <3 <3
