New Year, New Perspective

“Life Is Not Measured By the Number of Breaths We Take, But By the Moments That Take Our Breath Away”

At this time of year I love to take a little time to remember what all happened in 2015.  This year was filled with some many firsts and so many wonderful memories!  Below is a list of just a few memorable moments from 2015.

Now for 2016… What’s ahead… Honestly, I can’t wait for the journey to continue.  I’m so fortunate to have amazing family and friends! This next year my plan is to get my nutrition back on track, start being more selfless in the things that I do, and stop sweating the small stuff.  We’ll see how it goes. :)
