Thoughts for 2014

Last year I wrote about resolutions, aka ways I wanted to improve myself. This year though… I feel like I want to embrace who I am more as a person and NOT make these broad, general, and sweeping resolutions. Maybe that in and of itself is a resolution, but in all honestly 2013 knocked me on my butt and taught me to take care of myself. Pure and simple. So while it’s easy to say, “I want to exercise more” or “I want to eat better,” what I really want is to continue down the path of seeing the value and worth I have as a person and embracing and nurturing that. Of course there are so many things I want to improve, but for now I am content with accepting myself for who I am.

Those deep thoughts aside… here are some sparkly photos that Ashley and I took on a whim last week. Perfect inspiration for some New Years frivolity and glee, don’t you think? Cya next year! (I am totally one of those people who say that.)
