Here's to another year... A gift for you

Let's start with the obvious, it's my birthday.  Usually I make it a big deal and arrange birthday plans that extend well beyond the 24 hour time period to celebrate- but this year I’ve decided to do things a bit differently and spend it quietly in the comfort of my own home.  I think back to this very day last year and I can’t help but be in awe of how different things were and how different I really was.  In a year’s time I worked 3 different jobs, quit my full time, started a blog that evolved into a business, and became a freelance visual artist & creative consultant.  In a year’s time I’ve been blessed with 365 mornings, received smiles from hundreds of strangers, tried a matcha latte for the first time, and learned how to appreciate the little things again.  

So here’s to another year of all the small things that keep me alive, happy, and inspired.  And to all the people (both strangers & friends) that are a part of those beautiful moments, thank you :)
