Well, 2013 really kicked me in the butt, and showered me with hugs and kisses!
I had the opportunity to travel the world, work with some incredible people, and was completely inspired by new and old friends along the way. And to top it off, we were adopted by two very beautiful cats; Blackie “Sabbath” Boo and Yeti.
I am eternally grateful for the love and support from our family and friends, and are wishing you all the love in the world for 2014. I look forward to creating magic with you in the year ahead.
Here are a few highlights from throughout the past year…
