A New Year A New Sunrise Each Morning:

    Another year has waved hello and then goodbye all too quickly and I'm excited and enthusiastic to give 2014 a warm welcome! While considering a new year and all that is has to offer, I realized that nothing could symbolize renewed hope more so than a sunrise. It is my desire to treat each and every sun up with resilient enthusiasm and I also wish the same for you as well!

     I captured these images at a local beach in the area called Seacliff in Aptos, California. This precious gem of a spot has been a great source of comfort to me this past year. I have spent many very early mornings here getting some healthy exercise and collecting bits of treasure lapped up onto the sandy shore. On this particular visit however, I spent time with a friend discussing our New Year's Eve plans as well as goals we had for the upcoming calender turn. Although I do not typically commit myself to making a resolutions, I decided this year was the exception:

-Open an Etsy shop for my jewelry designs
-Seek inspiration often and blog my findings religiously
-Do what makes me feel happiness 
-Read often
-Explore my country's landscape 
-Spread kindness like an infectious disease

     What are some thoughts you have on the upcoming year? Any resolutions for 2014? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
