I can hardly believe that 2013 is over. This year has been so good to us with lots of traveling, exploring, learning, growing, and developing; we’ve been healthy, happy, and I’m feeling especially blessed to have this blog to document our lives, as well as my passion for style, sewing, and creating. Thank you for all your support and kindness — obviously it would not happen without all of you!

Here’s to an amazing 2014 — Happy New Year!
