2012 - A Year in Review

What a year it has been! At this time of year, when you are in between holidays and wondering when to take the Christmas decorations down, you {or at least I} tend to reflect on the happenings of the year and how to improve the next. I think the best way to move forward is by remembering where you have been... each and every circumstance and occurrence molds you and shapes who you are. For me, I want to focus on the accomplishments and successes, so to be able to start 2013 on the right track.



A while back, I wasn't quite sure where to take this blog. I knew I wanted to be involved in design in some way. There were times I thought I was wasting my time with my dreams, or it wasn't for me. But this quote is so true. Sometimes, dreams come more slowly than anticipated. I sometimes wish I could have a crystal ball and see into the future... but what fun would that be? This year, I've tried to take risks with my business and put myself out there more. If you don't try, you will always wonder what if?? I am so happy I did that and thankful to my supportive family for believeing in me! Also, a huge thank you to my clients, who have trusted me with their homes and supported my design vision for their space! It's amazing how these clients have become like friends. I have been so lucky to have found amazing people to work with. I am not sure what 2013 will have in store, but I'm along for the ride!

To switch gears a bit, I did have fun with some projects this year! {Don't you just love when 'to do' lists are completed?!?} Here'a bit of a review...





Joined instagram and have been loving the photo editing!

I won't make a resolution list and vow to eat better, work out more and read more books, because it's not going to happen!  :) What I will do, is try to take risks, relax a bit more and enjoy the ride.

Happy New Year and Thanks for Reading!!
