The start of a new year is interesting. It brings on a lot of reflection on the past 365 days. It makes me think of what days were happy, which were sad, what milestones were met and what lessons were learned. Twenty-sixteen was a year of major growth for me. Learning to be a mama to Hudson boy and growing as he grew so much. It was a year of loss as my family lost a sweet sweet family member and the pain of that is still very fresh. It has been a year of finding myself and realizing more than ever who I want to be for myself and for Hudson. Having a child really changes a lot. For me it has changed how I view the world. It has changed the things I am scared of. It has changed what I find most important in this life. It has absolutely changed me! 

What will Twenty-seventeen bring....

I have a lot of different hopes for this coming year.

I hope to find more motivation and work my booty off to reach my business goals. This can be hard for me and I can get discouraged easily BUT I am going to do my best to commit to growing my two small businesses. I know I can do it so I WILL do it! 

I hope to be as true to myself as I have ever been. I feel like I have been on this crazy six year journey of really finding myself. We live in this world that is always trying to shape us into what it wants us to be and we are often surround by people telling us who we "should" be. However, I firmly believe that we are who we are and we all need to be true to that. It's my biggest hope for Hudson growing up that he can just be who he is and be confident and happy in his own skin so.... I have to be that example and do the same!

I hope to give more love and receive more love! Sometimes it can be hard to ask for the love that you deserve. It can be for me anyways. We are always told to be selfless and give give give but sometimes it's okay to take for yourself too. L.O.V.E... it's what makes the world go 'round and we all need it in our lives! So I plan to give give give AND take take take.

One of my big hopes is that I can find more opportunities to serve others. It has always been an aspiration of mine to make a difference in this world. I'm still figuring out how exactly to make my mark but this is where I want to start! This includes finding companies who give back! I think it is so amazing when I company sets out to give back to those in need. Just Porter does just that.
When you buy a bag Just Porter works with a community in need by hiring a local bag maker, fills the bag with school supplies from a local small shop business and then delivers that bag to a child in need. How cool is that?! So by purchasing one amazing bag you help create jobs, support a small business AND help educate a child! Pretty dope guys.

What are your hopes for this coming new year?
