The world has many edges, and it's easy to fall off.


Dear 2013,

You and I, we're going to become good friends. I can feel it.

So far, you've brought me sunshine and butterflies - I like those. You've brought me closer to travel plans to meet some friends and go on some adventures.

You have brought me far, far too many interesting things on the internet, but I love them, so don't stop, okay?

I think I'm going to like you. I hope I do.



Dear Europe,

Being spontaneous is not my forte. I rather enjoy the entire process of planning, from choosing a goal, to creating an outline and filling in the details, then watching my plans unfold.

I like to feel in control.

That being said, sometimes I'm not in control, and when an amazing opportunity comes along, I can take a few deep breaths and say "yes". Even if it requires me to be spontaneous.

Hey, Europe?

Here I come!
