2012 has easily been one of the best years of my life so far and I have a feeling it'll only get better! This year we went on so many great adventures..
Here's a few from out geographical adventures..
We've been on many journeys besides the geographical ones as well, namely, SoulMakes and it's been quite a success!
We've done lots of fun photo shoots, traveled for artisan fairs, launched our new website, had the amazing privilege to hand pick a plethora of beautiful rocks and crystals from a giant warehouse across the country(exciting!!), we've continued to make tons of new designs and we are more inspired than ever!
Not to mention Trev and I have learned SO much from working together! We're such different people with different talents and we've been able to use that as our strength in building this business and we've carried a lot of these lessons into our personal life as well. We are quite a couple, if I do say so myself. I'm the luckiest girl in the world! We celebrated 3 years of togetherness this year :) Of course, there's not a single picture of us together in existence.. Here he is on one of our first dates, so handsome!
This year I've had the opportunity to nurture lots of growing relationships, especially with family..
(that would be the coolest big brother in the world)
I've been able to get to know myself a lot better too! The wonderful journey Trev and I have been on with SoulMakes has given me new kind of confidence. To watch my dreams unfold before me has been the most amazing gift, I certainly can't take all the credit, but I've put in a whole lot of hard work. There's nothing for gratifying than hearing from our lovely customers and fans that they are in love with our digs! I've also made a habit out of eating healthy and working out a lot over the last year(although I've been slacking..only slightly). The combination of taking care of myself properly and sharing my artistic talents with the world has really allowed me to feel like a strong and respectable young lady. I think I've really grown into myself, if that makes any sense...A year ago you couldn't even get me to smile for a photo...
A truly amazing year comes to a close and I am so looking forward to see what the future has to bring us. Here's a quick list of resolutions, in no particular order...
1. Continue to nurture my creative self and make lots of new jewelry!!
2. Rededicate myself to healthy living
3. Show gratitude for this wonderful life with my actions
