2014 // Top Blog Posts


Hello. Happy New Year’s Eve Eve. 2014 is almost over.  I would give this year a 7 1/2 out of 10.  That’s not too bad and we can even round-up.  It was a year full of experiences, friendships {good ones too}, love, loss, growth, and strength.  I learned to “be in the moment” and “be present” more. Time is such a valuable thing. I cherish the time with my family and friends and realize that it takes time to heal and grow. I’ve enjoyed sharing a glimpse of my style and life with you. Thank you for reading all the sparkle. Here is a glimpse of the most popular posts for 2014…

Hello. 2014 is almost over and so is this 2014 photo project. The 2014 project was all about photos that related to a word that a friend would give me each week.  Thank you so so so much to all that participated this year. Next week I’ll be introducing the new project for 2015. It’s different and exciting and gives me a place to share my photography and a glimpse of my life with you!  Since this is the last “Week in Pictures” I decided to end it with the word {sparkle}. Cheers to 2014! Here is a glimpse of my week…
