A New Year!

Happy New Year!

We celebrated pretty simply this year. Champagne and a fire, pajamas and a night filled with reflection on how much happened in 2013. And what a great year it was! We were engaged, both made career changes, moved to another state, I turned 30, we got hitched and went on a honeymoon. It was fun to talk about all the exciting changes and the possibilities that this year could bring.

For 2014, I also decided that making resolutions this year isn’t what I want to do. My theme, if you will, for this year is I just want to focus on enjoying right where I am in life and doing the best I can to stay joyful in my everyday. I want to be present and open to what life brings. I plan to work hard and hopefully gain some new friends through this little blog of mine. I want to pour my heart and soul into my artwork and share my life with you here openly and honestly in hopes to inspire and help you as readers in the process.

And to be honest, I want to throw the idea of being perfect out the f***ing window! Pardon my language, but I can really be so hard on myself and it’s exhausting! I get so hung up on making sure things have no flaws (especially with my artwork) and it has held me back in the last year with progressing to the next level. I believe in myself and I’m ready to be free of the idea of perfection. So long, arrivederci, au revoir, adios, haste la vista to “perfect”! If I don’t let this go, I will only continue to let myself down.

So bring it on 2014!

How about you, friends? What are you hoping to discover or improve upon this year?
