2012...get ready.

I am so excited to start the new year and jump feet first into the goals I've set for myself, both personally and professionally...but I do have to say that I am a little sad to say goodbye to 2011.  we talked about it today at our friends house, and over black eyed peas, turnip greens, black bean burgers & spicy wings (like my rhyme??) all agreed that we were blessed with a wonderful year on so many levels. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again (probably many times) - thanks to all of you for following along in this incredible journey. 2011 has been probably the most challenging and rewarding year of my life-  taking a leap of faith in my career, the birth of beckett, a successful business and family health scares overcome- we are so lucky.  one of my goals for the new year here on the blog is to post at least once a week.  I'm inspired by my friend, emily ley, who has taken on the challenge of posting every day. of course I want to keep you all coming back to see what silly musings I have (hopefully entertaining) but I also know that one day I'll look back on this and be so grateful that I kept a running dialog of daily life, back in my early 30's.  and yes- I'm saying 'early' even though I'm almost a few years in. ugh.

throughout the next couple of weeks I'll post about a couple of other goals I want to achieve this year. hopefully you'll help keep me accountable for them.  

here's to a happy and prosperous new year for us all! xoxo

Colossians 4:5-6  Make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.


  1. Happy New Year's gorgeous Mama... I hope we will get to meet this year x

  2. would you like to be accountability partners for blogging once a week? I want to be a part of TWIPS really badly & that's the part I'm lacking. You can check in on mine and I can do the same for you :)

    Oh and ps: I showed 1 of my brides your work yesterday & I think she's going to be calling you for bridesmaids bags. Her name is Mallory, be on the lookout! xoxo, Desiree
