the best day of the year

good morning and happy new year’s eve!


i hope your day is full of shimmer (we’re setting our stage for what’s to come)!


that you’re closing out the last few hours of 2013

and plotting the course for a clean 2014


that it will be full of sparkle


and dreams




that time will cease to exist and all we will have is the here and now



knowing that everything in front of us is infinite potential



shine on you crazy diamond!



and never stop sparkling!



all the best in the new year! can’t wait to share it with you!

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

December 31, 2013. Holidays.
