Our Christmas Card! | One To Nothin'

Our Christmas Card!

We actually did a Christmas card this year! Isn't she cute?

So since I *actually* completed this task for the first time since 2013 and the first time with anyone besides Ziggy (huge thanks to my roomies and Jason for humoring me), I thought this might be a good time to reflect on 2019. 

It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that I was about to throw a celebration of life party for one of my best friends this time last year. I was in such a blur of emotions from October 2018 on that it feels like yesterday and also forever ago. Time is confusing and grief is weird. 

But while I spent a lot of 2019 feeling anxious and figuring out how to take care of myself while also depressed AF, I also spent it with the most supportive partner I've ever had. I'm so grateful that I found him when I did. 

We went on so many adventures, some were a leap of faith, like when we flew to Seattle only a couple months after we started dating or when we drove across the country together even though he had never driven on the right side of the road before. And some I already knew would be great, like when he met my entire family, most of my best friends, and was my date for four different weddings. Then there were the mundane adventures, like doing approximately 140 jigsaw and crossword puzzles, watching about a million music videos in my living room, getting vegan pizza/treats at Timeless at least once a week, and spending Idon'tevenwannathinkabouthowmuch money on local bar tabs. He even broke his wrist/collar bone on my 30th birthday trying to get me a vegan cake and organize a surprise dinner (and STILL went camping with us next day). And, perhaps most importantly, he proved himself to be the best, most loving doggie step-dad who puts up with her extreme snoring every night. 

He hugged me while I cried, he didn't judge me when I screamed in frustration (because I was hangry or otherwise), he celebrated the wins, encouraged me when I was feeling less than, and helped me bounce back after losses. He met me at the train after work almost every day and calmed me down when it almost gave me a panic attack for the umpteenth time. He told me I was beautiful when I felt anything but, and he doesn't even mind that I've been a music tyrant from day one.  

We've been through a lot in the past 15 months, and it's because of him that I'll always remember 2019 as the beginning of something epic. 

Thank you for turning a year that could have been a somber ending of a chapter into my favorite love story of all time. 

(Ok, I know that was gross. You can vomit on me now.)
