Today is my 28th birthday. I am sitting in bed with Kyle and Gigi is headed for her first nap of the day. I'm sipping a cup of coffee and reflecting on the last year. So much has changed! When I started this blog we hadn't decided to start a family or buy a house and now, here we are with the perfect house for us and the most marvelous baby in the world! I truly can't believe it's been one year since I started this blog with the intention of being more positive and pursuing more of my passions.

When I sat down and wrote my first blog post, I put forth the following goal...
Stay in the present moment and pursue passion every day.
I have certainly accomplished this! I have, of course, had ups and downs as the year went by. Having this blog as an outlet inspired me to stay creative, active and positive. It was the thing that got me up off the couch on more than one occasion. I feel so much more in control of my creativity and much more motivated to explore, photograph, write, express and reflect.
I also expressed the following hope...
I believe that through the process of creating a passionate life, I will find that happiness within myself. I hope that my journey will inspire others to the pursuit of passion in their own lives.
Now, 365 days later, I can honestly say that doing this blog has changed my life. I am beyond happy! I feel so completely fulfilled and joyful! I have found so much joy in creating my posts and sharing them with all of you. As for inspiring you... I don't know! I know some of you have enjoyed my pregnancy and baby posts, tried my recipes, watch some of my film recommendations, traveled with me, started your own style makeovers and laughed with me. Each day I sit down and work on my blog and put it out there into the internet void and I am always thrilled to get your comments and questions and feedback. It really brightens up my day and keeps me writing and posting. If you have found it in any way inspiring or motivating then that is wonderful!
Thank you all so much for all of your wonderful interaction with me via this blog. It means a lot to me.
Happy new blogging year. I'm off to order breakfast in bed!
