a brand new morning




It was the perfect start to the brand new year - delicious spelt bread, peach preserves, slow-drip coffee and a bit of world news from the warmth of inside.  I plan on reflecting a lot about the past year, and scribbling out our plans for the next.  My biggest hope for the day is to spend some time cleaning up and starting the year with a fresh home and sorting through old photos for a "wrap-up of 2012" post I've been trying to organize.  I have so much gratitude for the growth I've seen to this space in the past year, and can't wait to continue to share our story with you. Thank you all for inspiring me and welcoming me into your community with open arms.  I feel so blessed.

Happy New Year, friends - from our family to yours, I truly hope this year is your best one yet.

If you find yourself needing a bit more inspiration, this post puts everything into perspective quite perfectly.

    1. I'm so, so glad that the link could offer some insight. That's exactly what it did for me - I had to share! Just the comfort of knowing that we will never stay stagnant even if we tried is enough to start this year on a high note. Thankful you've found your way over here, and I look forward to getting to know you better in the coming year! :) xo
