What a year. I have been pouring over 2014 on Instagram and thinking about all of the wonderful things that have happened. Perhaps the most notable thing to happen to me this year was being laid off. Something that sounds so ominous and foreboding (Scrabble triple letter score words) ended up turning into an incredible gift. I've always had a love/hate relationship with the quote "Everything happens for a reason." likely because its maddeningly true. I really found out the meaning of that quote this year and I swear that it rings true.
While these images only display the ups and the happy moments in the year, those are the moments I'll carry with me into 2015. I feel so grateful that this year I've been able to push myself creatively with photo shoots, styling and writing. I've also been able to develop this blog, create new and exciting content and to connect with amazing people like you from all over the world. I can't tell you how excited I get when I see a comment pop up here or on Instagram. Your support means so much to me and I genuinely appreciate each and every person that reads this blog.
I guess the end of the year is a time to be sentimental as we look back on the previous year, but I also want to look forward to 2015. I can only imagine what it has in store for me. I hope there are wonderful trips, new relationships developed, skills learned, comfort-zones pushed and, of course, a good crop of peonies. Thank you for a lovely 2014. Here's to 2015!
