Friday Love List - Dear 08...

Oh, 2008, haven't YOU just zoomed in to an end!

What, you think you can just rush to the finish line because YOU’RE all done, Mr. 365?

Where is my time to reflect? Where is my time to list the blessings and challenges that have defined you? You’re not going to stop so I can write a few sentimental posts about how my life has changed, how I’ve evolved, how I’ve grown because of you?

Fine, then. See if I care.

2009 is ready for me already, and I have a feeling we’re going to get along EVEN BETTER than you and I did!

That’s right, you heard me…

Not only will I get to keep all the good stuff I got from you for my next 365, like choco bear who's been there through the thickest and thinnest of your days, the most amazing friends I'm beyond lucky to have, the most exceptional experience I had in all my 21 years, and learning that the kitchen is not the enemy... but I can also leave behind all the stuff you gave me that I DIDN’T like, like twisted ankle tendons, breaking teeth over candy and the beginning of wrinkle formation (I'm under the idea that the process can be reverted).

So there.

And I was intending to post a bunch of pictures taken while you're here that I loved, BUT YOU ALSO GAVE ME CRAPPY INTERNET!

But since I'm writing this now, well after 2k9 has already begun (because here at Lujee's: We're Proudly Just Behind the Curve!), I decided to share some anyway.

With loads of love,
