2014 was a whirlwind. I photographed some of the most beautiful weddings in the history of Laura Kelly Photography, and welcomed a new member to our family.
A year ago (almost to the DAY), I wrote a blog post about some of my intentions for 2014. The word was "balance." I wanted my life to have less clutter, less noise, more purpose, and more passion. Reading that now, I can't help but feel proud of how I spent the last 365 days. I learned a lot about balance while spending more than half of the year as a working mom. The passion was there. The clutter disappeared.
And I rang in the new year on a family vacation in Florida, with the love of my life by my side. How does it get any better than that?
I also booked my ticket to the next Making Things Happen conference (woohoo!). Booking that ticket is the best thing I can do for myself in 2015. I always come out of it feeling inspired, refreshed, and energized to make my life even better than before. I've realized that if you just keep letting the days run into the next without stopping to set your goals and intentions, you're missing out on the opportunity to improve your life.
2015 is going to be an exciting one -- I know this because my calendar is filling up with AMAZING couples who are planning truly beautiful weddings. I know this because Coop will take his first steps this year and life will change yet again. I know this because I ALREADY feel fired up to work and create beautiful things and it's still off-season!
Happy 2015, my friends!
