It has been almost two years since my last blog update, so I figured it’s about time to write a little something. So much has happened to me within the last two years; especially within the last year. As many of you may know, my partner of 10+ years passed away on August 26th of last year, and it has been a difficult transition to say the least. However, I have an AWESOME group of friends that have been there for me through every laugh, tear, and heartbreak. To my best friends Erik, Mike, Robert, and Sheila (along with other close friends too numerous to mention), thank you for being the solid foundation that I so desperately needed. I honestly don’t think I could have come as far as I have without your support and guidance. You are all true friends in every sense of the word. I love you guys with all my heart.
And to the new friends I’ve come to know over the past couple of months through my travels: you may not realize it, but you have played an integral role in my life and have helped me to grow mentally and emotionally. Even though we may not share a lot of memories right now, I feel certain that our friendships will continue to develop into true, meaningful relationships.
