  2. What a beautiful tour of your life and goals. So much love and beauty in every picture. It truly is the "small" things that make life a joy even in difficult times. You have a gift of "Encouragement" and I have bathe in it since finding your blog. Miss V is so darn cute, and your "selfies" are stunning.
    I'm feeling like 2014 is going to be one of the best ever...not feeling my age this morning, and looking forward to stretching myself in trying new things in this new year.

  7. LOVE your header. My goodness, it is just gorgeous. Well, aren't you an inspiration for sure. After reading this I am determined to get more done in 2014, albeit only things I love. I want to start knitting again (it's been too long) so that I will do and you inspire me with your daily meals. Miss V, I am guessing, is going on two now? My little ones are 4 months, 1 and 3 1/2. They grow fast.I love all your photographs and do tell me how you stay so slim and gorgeous. You and your boyfriend have a Very Happy New Year. I look forward to your posts and photos next year. :) Hugs, Deb
