wild & carefree.

my soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring and carried aloft on the wings of the breeze.           ~ anne brontë

free spirit

the new year has got me thinkin’.

you & i, we’ve got this one life filled with moments that fly by in a flash. in just one blink of an eye, another year speeds by and time marches on. with the coming of this new year, i realize once again how blessed i am, how amazing life is, and how i want to soak up life like i’ve never done it before. i have so much for which i am thankful. so, i’ve made myself a promise. not a resolution, but a promise. something that keeps me grounded & true to myself. in 2013, i’m gonna continue to live my life to the fullest, enjoy the journey, seek out adventures, and embrace the free-spirited nature that i know & love.

and to make sure that happens, what i am seeking in 2013 is…

yes, this is my list. these are my dreams & my goals for 2013, a year that i welcome with open arms, with excitement, and with joy. a year in which i embrace my life and plan to soar high. a free-spirited year that i like to call, “lucky number 13”!


this is my commitment for 2013:

to live up to the spirit that is within me.

peace, love, & freedom.
