A Year Full of Highs and Lows

May 16, 2014

1{Graduating from college, and the graduation party my family held for my sisters and I who also graduated from high school.}

As a child I was involved in A LOT of sports and teams. Whether it was ballet, gymnastics, soccer, cadets or swimming, one thing that was common between all of them was that I quit within the first couple of classes or months. I would always come up with some sort of excuse for quitting, either that I didn’t like it, or it was too difficult for me to continue with. My mom would always encourage me to continue, but in the end I would win the battle and not return for the next season. Thinking back to this time in my life makes me realize that I probably missed out on learning a lot of valuable skills, but none more than learning to persevere when things get difficult (I probably could have been an Olympian by now). With The Blondielocks I can now safely say that it has been a year and I  am showing no signs of wanting to quit. I love being able to express myself here and continuously push myself to create great content. I also love that I now have so many pictures of the last year of my life that I won’t forget a single moment. So here we are a year of Highs and Lows. This week I went through 15 of my favourite moments, although there were many more, and have posted them in no specific order. Thanks everyone for celebrating my birthday week with me, have a great weekend!
