The 52 Project – a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013

wearing: neon shirt – BabyGap / shoes – Converse Chucks / leggings – Hello Merch

I feel like life is making a lot more sense to me lately.  Like I am finally finding my rhythm.  I don’t know what’s changed over the last few months, but I have renewed inspiration and appreciation for life.  There was a long period of time where I felt stuck….underwater, with little hope of reaching the surface.  I was so focused on my seemingly never ending to-do list that I failed to enjoy the everyday.  I didn’t allow myself to press pause, and breathe in the beauty of my life.  But lately, I’ve felt that changing.  I think, in part, it’s due to my 2012 reflections and realizing how much I want to do differently this year.  Being more present in the time I share with my daughter, my husband….my friends.  Focusing on what I really want to do with my business and whole-heartedly persueing it.  Not just saying things….but really doing them. Eliminating distractions, learning to say no, and chasing after the things that light up my soul.

While I love to share bits and pieces of my life, style and inspiration here on this blog….forgive me if it’s a bit more quiet around here than usual over the next few months.  I promise, it’s not because I’m not doing anything.  In fact, it’s probably because I am doing a lot more of what I set out to do all along.  (If that makes any sense at all!)  I’ll still be here, posting when I can and when I’m inspired….but I just thought that these changes that are stirring in my heart needed some addressing….because I know they will affecting the content (or lack of content) on this blog.  Thanks to all of you who keep up with me here….who encourage me and inspire me through your kind words!   You really are the best.

And don’t think I am going anywhere too quickly….because tomorrow I am hosting a giveaway. haha.  So hurry back, won’t you?

    So cute! I would love it if you posted what your little one was wearing or where you got her cute clothes for some of the posts. Those pants are super cute, and I have a little one just about the same age!

    Hey Kelli

    You are truly motivational! I wish you all the best in finding that magical balance. It’s tough balancing babies, family, friends and work. And balancing living in the moment, and documenting those special times. It’s something I think you have more down-pat than you think xxx

    Sounds like you are figuring it all out! I haven’t commented in a while but I’m so glad to “hear” this from you. Being present in daily life is SO important. How often do we look back & think “where did the time go?” I feel like I spent all of last year trying to recover from various traumas…I like the idea of loving my every day life more. Thanks for the encouragement.
