Today is a fresh start. A new year. Today marks the day of new goals, larger dreams, and doing great things with great intention. Last year was a growth period for me and my businesses. I am so grateful for the lessons, for the wins, and for recognizing the ultimate belief that when I do things with great intention and authenticity, the universe opens up in a beautiful way and dreams do come true. Things are not always as crisp as the images you see... I have learned to say no to opportunities that may not serve me in a healthy way. I am learning to be more vulnerable as a business owner and entrepreneur. I have learned to trust my instincts, which requires silencing the world around me. I am committed to only pursuing the things in life that make me feel alive and passionate. I have learned to let go and trust in divine timing. I have learned to value decisive progress over perfection. But most of all, I have learned to embrace my fears and set the intention of being fearless everyday. It's hard and not easy as we are all human and come with our own set of insecurities but at the end of the day, we all have a creative and authentic voice that is meant to be cultivated and heard. I encourage 2017 to be the year of supporting one another, to being fearless, and dreaming even larger than the year before. I am sending you all love and light and wishing you a warm Happy New Year from my heart to yours. Xx

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking together in the same direction." This couple's love has withstood the test of time and long distance. I have been working with them for months and their love is founded on patience and grace. It was a gift to be part of their engagement leading up to their beautiful wedding day. It is always an honor to have one of my favorite wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty feature my beautiful clients.
