As I've mentioned in previous posts, 2013 was probably the toughest year of my life, but it's neat to look back to see how far I've come. It had a rough start, but overall I was blessed with amazing opportunities and new life-long friendships this year. I'm very grateful. Check it out:

As 2013 comes to a close, I'm trying to reflect on the past and prepare for the future. I have big dreams for 2014. For some reason (maybe because 2.14 is my birthday, so I love those numbers), I think it's going to be my year! A girl can dream...
Have a happy, healthy and safe new year!
Stay fit and fabulous,
