… As we say bye to 2018, and hello to 2019, I don’t want to do the usual looking back at my year or writing up New Years resolutions (honestly, I never make them because I feel bad if I can’t keep them). Instead, I’m going to write a blog post for 5 specific people who made my 2018 what it was.
Ibby, you are my ray of sunshine. No matter what type of day I’m having, you’re a glimpse of happiness, always there. Every. Single. Day. We’ve made so many memories together, I even got to take you to see Ed Sheeran. Every year we get to make more memories together, and honestly I’m so grateful to have you in my life. You make me smile on my darkest days. You’re always just a snapchat away, despite the actual geographical distance between us. You’re there for me if I need a laugh or someone to rant to. Thank you for being a huge part of my life. Can’t wait to see what memories we this year. #RubyDoesItBetter
Oh Sharkbait, what a journey we’ve had. But honestly, my 2018, was what it was because of you. I’m so glad I sent you that message (of daves phone), because I got you back. We always said we were soul mates and I stand by that. Although I hate seeing you go through bad things, I’m kinda glad you do. Because we live the same life. We are stupidly in sync, and that gives me a sense of comfort. If I’m going though something, I know I’m not alone, because you’ll understand exactly how I’m feeling. I’m so grateful you are always there for me. The second I message you, you are there. I can’t thank you enough. I wish you nothing but happiness this year and can’t wait to spend a whole year together! (And maybe get an updated picture of us😂)
Mike, who knew walking into your shop that one day will spiral into the friendship we have? I would never have called it. You have actually become one of my best friends. I don’t go a week without hanging out with you, well in 2018, I practically lived in the shop with you. But you were always there to cheer me up, and that was needed… A LOT. You made me laugh, gave me advice, or just gave me a hug. You’re a soul like no other. Never change Mike, because you’re amazing just like you are.
(I don’t have a picture of just us 😢)
I don’t even know how to begin to describe the year we’ve just had. It has definitely had many ups and many really bad downs. But no matter what, we have made it through. We’ve basically become family. You’re such a strong minded character, with a huge heart. You’re always there for me, beating down the people that make me feel awful. You stand by my side with everything I do, always being my No. 1 fan. You put so much effort into our friendship, even travelling 100 miles to visit me for my birthday. I’m so proud of everything you’re achieving. Keep thriving my love!
You’re alright I guess 😉
Nah I’m just kidding. You’ve been my literal rock throughout 2018. Through many rollercoaster of emotions I’ve gone through, you’ve supported me throughout it all. You encourage me to be the best I am, and don’t let a day go by without making sure I know you love me. You took me into your home when I was in a hell house. You’ve surprised me with flowers countless number of times. You’ve done everything you can to be the best person for me. We made so many memories in 2018, I can’t wait to see where 2019 takes us. I love you.

I have a small circle, but an amazing one. I’m so thankful for you 5!
