Ringing in the new year has already come and gone… for me it came fast, too fast where I didn’t even get a chance to reflect on all that happened in 2014, let alone determine and set goals for the year ahead. This year the turn of the clock felt like just another day, days that have recently become filled with planning and discussing the unknown. With the countdown to our wedding fast approaching, living in two different cities and trying to figure out how and when Michael (and all of our stuff) will move down, the holidays kind of took a back seat. There’s so much I wanted to do, to share and to write about but there was just never enough time in the day.

The past couple of months I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster, I’ve been overjoyed, stressed, worried, anxious, happy, excited, nervous, and so so ready to be settled (hopefully sometime soon.) But today, eight days into the new year, I can finally share my thoughts on 2014 and commit to my hopes and dreams for 2015.

A New Day, A New Adventure

2014 consisted of a lot of changes, challenges and new adventures. I am so excited for 2015! It’s the year Michael and I vow to do this thing called life together, no matter the twist and turns it takes. It’s the year I get to be closer to my family, it’s the year we begin our life as Mr. & Mrs., it’s the year I worry less (or at least try), it’s the year I appreciate all that I have, it’s a new chapter of a book we continue to write, it’s a chance to turn the page and see what’s next. So for today, regardless of the fact that it’s 8 days into the new year, throw the confetti, pop champagne, celebrate the life you live and be thankful for all that you have, at least that’s what I plan to do 😉

And to really help you celebrate, here’s a little something that will make your desktop sparkle, glitter and shine as you start the new year! Click here to download.
