This year was… nuts. I can honestly say 2012 was the year in my 20’s where I have grown the most. I signed my first distribution/record deal, released two music videos, performed at SXSW, and opened for Maroon 5 and Bon Jovi. Love came, love went. Friends came, friends went. There was a period where I was technically homeless. My dog fought cancer. I got diagnosed with a terrible illness that affects the rest of my life. Old wounds surfaced and stared me in the face until I dealt with them.
Through all of this, I have never been so grateful for my friends and family who have been my cheerleaders every day. Whether it was watching my dog when I was unable to, giving me hugs when there was nothing left to do but cry, or sending me funny internet images to just to make me smile- all of this has left me incredibly humbled, and most of all incredibly inspired. ”Burn a Little Brighter” is my gift for the crazy cast of characters 2012 has so graciously brought me.
“Here’s to the next three hundred and sixty-five / May there be fewer tears than there are smiles”
