So I'm a little bit late with my whole goodbye 2013 / hello 2014/ resolution/ recap post, but here it is at long last!
2013, you were a challenging year! Blogging is a funny thing - it's such a tricky balance to keep my personal life private and be real with you guys at the same time. I want to be authentic and relate-able, but there are also a lot of things that happen in life that just aren't meant for the blog, ya know? Relationship stuff, family stuff, etc. So let's just say this year had many, many ups & downs, some truly challenging and at points heartbreaking times, but also a lot of fun and joy and friendship!
It was a big year for the blog! Earlier this year I jet-setted off to the UK and got to meet two of my favorite blog friends, Jen and Alicia. In the summer I flew to Toronto for Digital Dreams with Smart Set and got to meet a slew of awesome Canadian bloggers! It was really quite mind blowing and I am so, so thankful for these opportunities!
Above is just a mish-mash of photos from the past year and some pinterest pins that struck me along the way, including my moto for this year "She turned her can'ts into cans and her dreams into plans" - I'm not much of a resolutions girl, but I've decided on a few things to guide me through the next year:
1. Don't be afraid to try new things.
2. Try at least 2 new activities - barre class, touch rugby, snowshoeing, etc.
3. Say yes more without hesitation / self doubt.
I'm off to a good start, as I tried out a barre class yesterday and loved it! It was challenging for sure and my legs trembled most of the time but I will definitely be going back! There are also a lot of little things, like bringing my lunch to work and getting back into a certain weight range, commit to eyebrow grooming, get skin issues under control, etc, that are on my list, but those are the main ones I'm focusing on.
And with that, I say goodbye to 2013 and a HELLO to 2014! A huge thank you to each and every one of you for your support, love and friendship this year, and for reading this little blog of mine!
