{Happy New Year}

I hope you all have a lovely New Year's Eve!
I really love this time of year because it allows me to reflect back on the past 12 months and all that came with it: the ups & downs, the learning experiences, the opportunities, the moments that changed my life and everything in between.

This fabulous year has been one for the books and I am so very grateful for all that has happened. I think it is awesome to have New Year's resolutions, but I think it is more awesome to look back on the past year as a reference point for going forward.

I also think it is extremely important to be proud of yourself, for all that you have done and will do, and to remember that you are your true best friend.
Your happiness is top priority.

I knew 2011 was going to be big, but I am honestly a little nervous because I have no expectations for 2012! Well, other than to be as happy as possible and seize the world one day at a time of course ;-) I guess it would be a little naive of me to pretend I don't have any expectations...

I have no problem sharing with you how proud I am of myself and all of my accomplishments. I never quite knew what I was made of until this year! I am chasing my dreams and succeeding my expectations...a truly amazing feeling.

I want to thank my family and friends who continue to love me unconditionally and support me in everything I do. I'm learning more & more about love every single day. I'm learning what it takes to be the best version of myself. I'm also learning to treasure each day a way I hadn't before.

So cheers to another year of life.
Another year of big decisions.
Another year of following your heart...
...and making your dreams a reality.
Another year of blessings & lessons learned.
Another year of love.

Make it count.
