Another year has come and gone, and I am feeling super blessed and grateful for all the people in my life. I got to blow out two sets of candles and celebrate at midnight with my team at an amazing Spanish tapas restaurant in Toulouse. I’m so thankful we got to share a fun night together sans coach, and with seemingly endless pitchers of yummy sangria amidst a brutally exhausting 4 day training camp of 10 practices and weight sessions. I’m thankful that my roommate, and two other girls on my team were up for birthday sushi by the time we returned from our four hour road trip, and surprised me with another set of candles to blow out. I’m thankful for the birthday e-card from my grandparents, postcards from my dad, Skype call with mom and tearjerking insta post from my baby sis. I’m thankful that, the people that I love were able to celebrate and make me feel special so far away from home. I am so so blessed, and so grateful. And I can’t wait to be home in a few days. Cheers to another year, I hope I can make 23 as amazing as 22. Love you all.
