"Honestly, I want to see you be brave..."
"Brave" - lyrics by Sara Bareilles
Hello 2014!! I'm so excited to start the new year and return to my little corner of the world. 2013...Well...it literally whisked right by me and I didn't have enough time to catch it. I wish I could say it was a character development year for me...but alas it was not. I fell apart at the seams and scrambled to collect the pieces. I'm slowly putting the stuffing back into place and eager to put my best foot forward for this new adventure. That's what this year is going to be. Character Development, Adventure, Excitement, Bravery, and Happiness. Yeah, I like how that sounds! =)
New Year's Eve wound up being a quiet little night with my boyfriend Craig and me leaving a party to watch the ball drop at home in our lil studio condo alone with our kitties. It was perfect. There was no place I'd rather be. We clanged my wine glass full of champagne & his red solo cup of champagne and cheered to this new year! It didn't dawn on me that I didn't have any champagne flutes but it was so us and that's all that matters. Oh and yes there were burritos! Yummy Yummy Burritos!! =)
I have the usual new year's resolutions but this, yes this will be the year they will be accomplishments not just hopes and pipes dreams. Maybe because it's an even numbered year that I'm more motivated? Not sure, but I just feel it deep in my bones that this will be a year of true change and true moving forward. I feel ready to take it all on.
In addition to my life, I've been doing some planning on how to make this lil blog something I'm very proud of and happy to be a part of everyday. Like I said, this will be a year of character development for me and I can't wait to share that with all of you. I will be bringing back some of my favorites from the past...for example my "Living Together" series. It will be a year in February that Craig and I have lived together. I can't believe it! =)
For now, I'm going to go work on my Day 1 entry for my Five Year memory book I purchased at Anthropologie last week. I purchased the Mr. Boddington Studio Every Day - A Five Year Memory Book. Five years...Wow. I hope I don't lose it. I have this gut feeling the next 5 years are going to be very important and I don't want to miss a moment of it! =)
Happy New Year, Stay Warm & Much love!
