The Girl Behind the Glass: 2013, a year through my eyes.

"Hold your head high gorgeous, they would kill to see you fall."

2 0 1 3

The year flew by so fast. Admittedly, it didn't start out so great. I mean, i lost a big contract , endured a ridiculously slow torturous winter, lost loved ones to death, and fell deeply in love with a guy who broke my heart over and over again. I guess you could say things were looking kind of bleak. Luckily enough i've never been one to take anything lying down. As i picked myself up off the ground and brushed the ashes off of my shoulders, i rose up through the fire with a new determination not to be beaten. I found a home at The House, shot some incredible weddings, rebranded, landed my very first Ad Campaign, was published several times in online blogs and print magazines, and found my spirituality again.

Three hundred and sixty five days seems like such a long time. When you say the number out loud, it almost feels like you  have  too much of it. But when you're out there living and making memories, it goes by in an instant. You grow older, you get closer to people (or in some cases, you grow painfully and torturously apart), you learn from your mistakes, and you revel in your victories. Then the ball drops, and the earth completes one revolution around the sun and starts another. A new beginning. A new three hundred and sixty five days. The air is crisp and buzzing with promises of what is to come.

So, with that being said, i present to you (drum roll please): My 2013  year in review through photos (weddings, and personal). Enjoy.
