40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
“When we were in our youth, we had dreams that we could fly.
We had friends that weren't visible and love that never died.
And as we grew old, I felt the pain that we always new the truth.
That love would heal if we stayed true to the dreams of our youth.”

"All I have, all I need. He’s the air I would kill to breathe. Holds my love, in his hands, still I’m searching for something. Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again.”

I'm going to also be posting a 2010 Review in Photos, stay tuned! Xo
