24kt Golden coated rose my boyfriend gave to me for our anniversary/Christmas.
I think it goes without saying that 2016 was the strangest year. Ever. From all our personal struggles to the devastating events that happened throughout the world, we have surely been dealt a shitty hand this year. If 2016 taught me anything it is to be so utterly grateful for the moment I'm in and the loved ones I get to share every moment with. Way too many moments this year could have been the last I got to spend with my loved ones and so I have learned to never let an opportunity to tell someone I love them pass me by.
So as we champagne toast tonight let's cheers to all the blessings that 2016's unfortunate events have brought us.
Cheers to all the friends we lost. For now we have space for better ones.
Cheers to all the tears shed. For they have made us stronger.
Cheers to the heartbreak. For it has made us stronger.
Cheers to all the times we almost lost our minds. For they have made us wiser.
Cheers to all our losses. For they have made us appreciate what we have.
Cheers to all the nonsense going on in the world. For it has brought us together with a common goal to make a better future.
2016 was the year that broke me down to my smallest pieces, but it was also the year that built me back up - stronger than ever. This time last year I was at one of my lowest points. I was dealing with anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I am so proud to say that I have overcome it all and I am living a much healthier and happier life.
I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store for us all. Better yet, what WE have in store for 2017.
Thanks for reading!
