In those 365 days, I have learned a few things: people can surprise you in the best ways. I have seen incredible generosity from friends and brand new acquaintances. Dogs truly are your best friend. I had no idea I could love a dog this much. Seems silly - she drools over peanut butter, dirties my floors, and subjects my hair to conditions I don't always approve - and yet, she is the best decision Alan & I have made as a couple. Lastly, I have learned that Alan is a rock on which I lean more than I would have anticipated. As someone who thrives on alone time and independent projects, I rely on him and he comes through. For these lessons I have learned and the experiences I have had, I am thankful for the last 365 days.
