Twas a great year... good ole 2012.

When it comes time for me to write about an entire year, rarely do moments or events stick out in my mind; rather the people I got to spend them with. So here are a list of people who made my year absolutely fantastic!

Emily. I would truly say that I have the most amazing sister in the entire world. She can make me LAUGH like nobody else. She is easy to talk to and always willing to listen. We giggle for hours and I love her to pieces! Thanks for the memories, laughs, late nights talking, and hours of movie watching, sister!

Oh Maddie.... my Maddie. I really don't know what to say. She makes my life so eventful. So full of joy and laughter. She is seriously my other half and people at school know that. If you find me, you have found Maddie. She makes me laugh, she helps me be a bit more logical. She listens to me talk for hours, she tells me everything. She is an amazing example and role model to me and I look up to her so much! I am so thankful God has continued to allow me to have such a fun friendship with this beautiful chica!

Thomas. Thomas is slowly turning into one of my favorite people. Such a stud. It's ridiculous. I love how much he loves baseball, his friends, XBOX, wrestling (Ok... I dont ALWAYS love that side of him), laughing, being goofy, and being incredibly athletic. He has a great sense of humor and I feel that it has just been over this past year we have really clicked and become good friends. I love you, Thomas!

Maja. She was so awesome. She was a foreign exchange student from Denmark and became one of my closest friends. She was really funny and told LOTS of stories about Denmark and her life style over there. Loads of fun to get to know someone from another country.

Kaisha BANNON! Woot woot! Kaisha got married this year to Cody. Cody is another awesome person of 2012, but I didnt have a picture of him. Sorry Cody. But Kaisha is awesome. And I have got to see her a lot this year and I think she is totally AWESOME! Words dont do justice to the pure amazingness that she has. And her husband is awesome. And well... they are just... awesome.

What WONDERFUl (and cute, might I add) parents I have! They have helped me so much this year with helping me figure out college/friendships/working.... life. They are such a great example and I really do hope to be like them one day!

And last, but most definitely not least, Jake Shier. What an awesome boyfriend. This guy seriously is the sweetest most thoughtful person I have ever met. I hate to get cheesy and ooey gooey. But seriously. He constantly listens, cares, takes me to fun places, laughs with me... Kinda everything a good boyfriend should be; and then some! Incredibly thankful for him and the role he has in my life. 

Well 2012, you have been wonderful. Thanks for the memories, the people, the lessons learned. It has been quite a ride and I have loved it all.

Helllllooooooo 2013! Hello CHANGE! Graduating High School, going to college. This will be quite the adventure! I'm ready for it though.

 Here we go!
