Hello 2014. Good Bye 2013. Happy New Year! #TILT

Happy New Year! It seems so appropriate to put this into a Things I Love Thursday post.  2013 was one amazing year full of “Big Life Events”. JC and I bought a house. We got married. We started the year in Las Vegas, and ended it in New Orleans. Both of us travelled a lot, together and separately. I helped put together workshops on things I’m good at.

I will have to do a full recap of the last week celebrating my birthday in San Francisco and Las Vegas, because the sights and food in both cities were awesome.  But for now, let’s talk goals for 2013. I’m opting to do three projects this year: 101 in 1001 days/Day Zero Project. The Embodiment Project. And potentially the most challenging of all – 365 days of self portraits.
