Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. -Hal Borland
2012, what a year! A great year! Reconnecting and forming closer bonds with family, meeting new friend's/reconnected with old ones, career firsts: planned 1st NY fashion week presentation, quoted in a west coast trade newspaper. It's had a few difficult moments: friendships/relationships deteriorating, and overcoming self doubt, something that was a constant battle this year. I am grateful for my family and friend's and the experiences I had with each of you.
As with any year, I'm leaving 2012 feeling a changed, evolved. I did a lot of growing this year and feel more a sense of self than I did NYE 2011. I am going into 2013: wiser, stronger, and honest (with myself and those around me) than I was a year ago, it is a great feeling to have. If you are not growing from your experiences then what's the point? Right?
I am spending NYE at..... HOME yes the first time in a long time actually. I decided to take it easy as I have been battling a cold for the past few days. I'm feeling better but not 100% yet (which is why there were no outfit posts this week). I'm watching True Blood, then pouring myself a glass of moscato. It is nice to take it easy, there are busy weeks ahead: outfit posts for the blog, photoshoot for a new launch at work, promoting the new launch, planning a NYFW event, attending my first movie premiere, and attending to my first Knicks game at the Garden. All in January and February!
