When I think of the decade coming to a close I think how each year felt like a mountain to climb. In the photo above was a road trip I took with my boyfriend Gus, we traveled to Portland and it was there that we saw we could get along, and enjoy each others company for a long period of time. We joked about how now we can have a child, and that we should name it Portland. 2018, that child was born, and she’s been one of our greatest challenges and reward, and yes, we named her Portland.
Life is completely different, I am different. With that, have come new challenges, giving and taking care of the people I love.
I’m grateful for life, for the decade. For the people who I came across who were friends for a moment, for the co workers who challenged me, or made me laugh during those boring Mondays. For the boss who believed in my ability, for the pastors who took the time to ask about my personal life (even though I hated it I was always thankful for it) for the boyfriend who turned husband who loved me every single day, for the baby who smiles and cries for me, for Instagram friends who say hi who live across the world, for the childhood friends who want to hang out in real life, for my family who have become kinder as we get older together.
2010, was full of questions. 2019, I am living those answers. A new decade, is creating new questions, and I look forward to seeing those answers 2030 — but I can wait for that, for once in a my life, I am in no rush.
