you can always change. become a better version of yourself.

So long 2014.....hello 2015. It's the end of another year. Somehow, the last twelve months have managed to fly by. They have been busy to say the least! Each month was full of concerts, special events, friends, family, and even an engagement. There is no doubt that this past year has been a memorable one for me personally. Even though it was full of a lot of work and sacrifice, it was also one of the most exciting I can remember.

There were a lot of highlights for me. The most notable? My boyfriend proposed to me this past summer. It was without a doubt the most incredible moment of my entire life. Since then, everything has kind of been a blur of plans, decisions, and thinking about the future. Because of that, I am now getting ready to start a whole new chapter in my life. So, I guess that I am feeling pretty optimistic (if not a little nervous!) about the coming year.

2015 is definitely going to be a big one. Like a lot of people, I have a few resolutions that I am hoping to achieve in the months that follow. Unlike previous years, this time I am keeping it simple. I actually came across a picture that perfectly represented my goals for the year ahead.....

Perfect, right? I think in the past I have made my resolutions far too complicated. Instead I am trying to take a step back and focus on the important things. Being healthy, being happy, and sharing love. I don't know what your resolutions are this year - but I hope the picture inspires you like it inspired me.

The start of a new year brings with it a raft of new hopes and dreams. To all of you out there, have fun celebrating the start of 2015.....and enjoy every moment of the year ahead.

How do you plan to celebrate New Years? Do you have any resolutions?
