Goodbye 2014.

As this year comes to an end I can't even begin to put into words the excitement of this 2014 year. 

It has truly been amazing. I am so excited for next year. 
#365daysofliz ends tonight. Bittersweet. 


Be safe tonight!

2014. It's been fun!

At the beginning of the year I posted this on my blog (taken from another friend): 

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. The anxious fear of “failure” is often the biggest thing that holds people back from reaching their goals. This year, I intend to toss that sorry excuse out the damn window and give myself more credit!!! 2014 will be a year of more intention and less hesitation.”


I truly believe I have put that fear of failure aside this year. I have gone towards my goals and hopes this year and many things haven't happened for me. But one step forwards is all I could do. 
This year I: 
Finished my first year of teaching 
Celebrated snow with kids who had never seen it before
Been shown who my real friends are
Enjoyed spring break more than ever before
Moved into my own place
Spent most of my summer at the beach
Started my second year of teaching
Watched my mom graduate with her Masters
Watched my brother graduate High School
Watch the other brother graduate Elementary School
Spent almost every Saturday in the fall at the football field
Took my nana to her first UGA game
Saw Santa
Spent loads of time with family during the holidays


This year has been a year of firsts. A year of risks. And a year of laughter. My first blog post was nearly a year ago and I have kept this thing up and running since, no I haven't blogged as much as I wished but I kept it. One of my new years resolutions was to take a picture a day. I did it! (yes the year's not over yet, but I'm not quitting now). People have asked me if I'm doing this next year and I have said no, but sitting down and looking at everything that happened this year has truly helped me realize how amazing this year was. Little memories I wouldn't have remembered, but I did. 

Here is my year in review.
