GOODBYE 2015!

2016 RESOLUTION REVEALS…

2015 has been quite a year. There have been many highs of adventures and travel with friends old and new, but also lows with loved ones struggling with sickness and health. I always get reflective this time to year to assess what I can do better in the upcoming months.  Hopefully, I am leaving 2015 being a bit wiser, more faithful and grateful. Click here to read my resolution roundups from 2015 and 2014.

Cheers to 2016 and wishing you all a year full of love, laughter, adventure, happiness and health!

GOODBYE 2014!

2015 RESOLUTION REVEALS…

The end of the year is always a reflective time for me. It is truly incredible how much can transpire in twelve months which I have been reminded of as I have been doing my annual studio purge this week. I am an incurable sap and get incredibly nostalgic going through pictures and correspondence reminding me of the adventures, memories and friendships I have created over the past year.

Perhaps it is the English major in me, but I am always a sucker for a good quote (which explains why I have a Pinterest board dedicated to 700 of my favorites!) Last year, when I was contemplating resolutions, the quotes seemed to say it better than I could, so I figured I would have another go for 2015! To see last year’s, click here.
