T.S. Eliot said that once, according to a quick google search I just did for "new beginning quotes" I'm working on my transparency in 2018.... can ya tell? I have to say though, with the turn of another year, I am hyper aware of birth of new beginnings.
2017 on a personal level brought so many, heart-stretching, beautiful things: the birth of my second niece, Addison Grace, the birth of my nephew, Wyatt Daniel, and a proposal to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, Sam. (I said yes, btw.) The balance of work-life-business has been a challenge, but after another successful season, I feel excited to move into a new year, with a refreshed approach to life and love.
[ I am all about the first photo with any teeny human being a selfie -- just us, in the first moments of meeting - I have one with my first niece, Emma, that I absolutely cherish]
Becoming a bride-to-be has altered the way I approach my consultations. Viewing my industry and business from a potential client's perspective is truly eye-opening. I never grow tired of hearing how people fall in love or why they have chosen to spend the rest of their lives together. I love watching my couples families grow and change, from fur babies, to teeny humans, to new houses, or new states -- it makes my heart so full to see people in love.
Even with the turn of a new year, I still have my favorite things close at hand, Sam (MY FIANCEE, how weird is that!?), our two fur-weirdos, Tony and Friday, and a hot coffee or tea. I've picked up a new hobby, a monthly book club, and refined my approach to project lists. In short, the year ahead should be an exciting one, full of change and time spent together!
How are you spending the first few weeks of 2018? What are your plans and goals for the new year? Sending you all of my love and support from afar while you guys reach your dreams!
