Today as I’m writing, it is my 26th birthday. In looking back at the previous year, I can say without a doubt that 25 was filled with the biggest triumphs and some of the biggest challenges I have ever experienced.

To this day, I don’t think I’ve given myself the time to process my feelings on the loss of my grandma.
