Birthday Girl Oil-free Raspberry Dressing

Oil-free Salad Dressing (6)

A new year has begun!

It’s my birthday today which makes it a perfect time to look back on all the things I’ve accomplished in the last 12 months. I’m ready to close this chapter and set my sights on what I’d like to see unfold in my 27th year.

In the last 12 months I’ve left the corporate world to pursue my calling, moved across the country, spent a week in New York studying photography, hired a vocal coach, wrote my first book, met Danielle LaPorte, worked on some crazy self-love practices, completed two 30 day yoga challenges, learned how to sit in silence ALL day and read 16 books. Boom.

27. I want to… write another book, find a place to call home, meditate, read more, meet awesome women, get married, work with kids, deepen my faith, travel far, dance, sing, and draw pretty things.

This year, I am going to create.

Quote-Line2

I’m going to do what makes me feel good, and let go of the stuff that doesn’t.

I’m going to continue to celebrate the food I eat, and worship the amazing life that I have – ups, downs, smiles, tears, all of it.

I’m going to bathe my salads in pretty pink sauce and treat myself to bright colored things…

And before all of this goodness happens, Kevin has told me that I have a day planned at the spa today! So, off I go to soak in my reflective day and meld into the weekend with grace and ease.

Before we part, I’d love to know…

Do you set goals or intentions on your birthday? Here are the goals I set for my 25th birthday and 26th birthday.

What’s one thing that you hope to accomplish this year and… why? What is it that you find attractive to that goal, how are you going to feel after you get it?

Have a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend!
