Hello all! So I had a neat experience yesterday: I was modelling hats and fascinators with my best friend Danielle Scheven (she has her own blog on her entrepreneurial musings, you know – check it out here!) at our annual community flower show (yes, we have an event all about flowers – welcome to the country). I got to see and wear some gorgeous head-wear,  and well it inspired me! So I headed to the nearest Michaels afterwards to buy the materials to make my own fascinator!

With New Years Eve upon us and the year of 2012 coming to a close, I thought this would be a good time to offer some thoughts for the new year ahead. I am – perhaps unfortunately – not a big believer in new year resolutions. I tried them multiple times growing up and found, like a lot of people, that they last all of a couple of weeks and then fade away as the activity and stress of life overwhelms the desire to floss every day. I also think that the motivation to accomplish something should not reside in one calendar day but should instead come from within you! Continue reading
