Hello my lovely friends! Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful time over the holidays and were able to spend tons of time with family and friends. Christmas time is the most magical time of the year, I wish it could be Christmas everyday… Yeah, I’m one of those Christmas fanatics and I’m not sorry about it!
Although I think New Years is a little overrated, I can’t believe the year 2015 is already among us. 2014 was a really great year for me. Reflecting on the year only brings smiles to my face. I got to spend the early months of 2014 interning for a Toronto fashion legend, Pat McDonagh (even attending Toronto Fashion Week in her honor); I spent the summer months exploring the city with my adventurous roommate; I spent the fall interning with the most amazing team at Preloved and landing a fantastic part time job at Anthropologie; and I spent the end of year with my family back home in my cozy small town. Of course there are so many stories and adventures in between, but I am so grateful for all the opportunities that came to me during 2014 and I am so lucky to have had the support of the world’s greatest family and friends through it all.
The future scares some people, however I am not one of them. It only excites me as I look into 2015 and prepare to take anything it throws at me head on. I hope to continue going on spontaneous adventures with my friends, working hard and making connections through work and interning, and creating a real home in my new apartment closer to downtown Toronto.
I strongly believe that you should evaluate and work on who you are as a person at all times, but a great place to start is by setting resolutions in January. In the past, my resolutions have been to be a more positive, open minded person. In 2015, I will continue working on this.. But I also want to spend more time doing things for myself like blogging, doing yoga, doing DIY’s, and spending time with my friends. Working is good but I’m easily swept up in it all and often forget to take care of myself and have some fun, too.
All in all, I hope you all had a great time over the holidays and I wish the very best for you in 2015. I realize I’m always saying I’ll try to blog more… But this time I really mean it! I have a few posts (and some layout changes) planned for the upcoming weeks so stay tuned and keep checking back.
