2012: it’s a wrap

“Dear God, let me be something every minute of every hour of my life.

ah ski ski ski

january: i learned to ski (or just became really good at snow plow)


february: i didn’t have any valentines, but i bought a huge box of apples and that is basically the same thing.

Let me be gay; let me be sad.

21st birthday: the greatest hits via pics

march: i turned 21! i also went to a classy restaurant for dinner and spent about my a week’s worth of grocery money on an awesome meal


may: my cousin did the ironman triathlon in st. george, and we cheered him on


Let me be cold; let me be warm.


june: my mom and i went to seattle to explore the city and to run the rock n roll half marathon


and ate a lot of memorable food (best part!)

Let me be hungry…have too much to eat.


july: my family took a trip to denver, colorado to visit family… and to see the beach boys at the red rocks!


i also soaked up summer and tried to drag out days with my friends between long hours at work


my friends started leaving on missions right and left. i miss them

Let me be ragged or well-dressed.


august: i lived with my grandma all summer, and we became good friends


i hiked with my cousin up to the top of y mount… and was sore for the rest of the month.

Let me be sincere- be deceitful.


september: i began my studies and living in madrid


october: brought lots of great outings with this girl, this one being to mansanarez el real, madrid, to hike.

Let me be truthful; let me be a liar.


i went to paris with my friends and had the time of my life


i also fulfilled a dream of seeing bon iver in concert


november: we took a whirlwind trip to portugal. it was awesome

Let me be honorable and let me sin.


i didn’t let thanksgiving slide… we had a vegetarian feast!


i went to austria to see what it was all about


and budapest, hungary, too.


december: we found snow in the mountains!

Only let me be something every blessed minute.


i took lots of walks in madrid to admire the light displays


and then went to london


i formed al the memories i could in alcalá de henares


and i came to really love this hilarious spanish family of mine


and then i got to spend christmas with my family! even if it was in the hospital

And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost”-A Tree Grows In Brooklyn

this was such a great year-

i was so lucky to be able to do the things i did, see the things i saw, and continue to try to mold myself into the person i’d like to become. here’s to a new year, new opportunities, and new possibilities!


  1. Awww this is absolutely precious!!
    Sadly, now when you see all blog posts views from me, they won’t be from Spain anymore…haha
