a new year, a new motto.

Hi friends! I'd like to wish you all a very happy 2013! I have a feeling this year will be one of the best yet! I've been on the road this past week and just returned home last night. Phew! Loads and loads of driving really takes a physical toll on you. Bloodshot eyes? Check! We drove a total of 4,416 miles. While the miles were tiresome, it was also a perfect time for me to reflect on the past year.

During that reflection time, I've decided my new motto for 2013 will be 'MAKE IT HAPPEN.' I've always been one to do things that felt comfortable and to rarely venture out of that zone, this year will be different. I think my last birthday kind of gave me some perspective on life. As cliche as it sounds, life really IS short and I'm not going to let it pass me by another day.

Keep an eye out for some lovely stops that we made and some follow-up photos coming soon! Feel free to check out Instagram and facebook for a few on the road shots!

Wishing you a lovely weekend and a great year for you to shine!

peace, love & coffee,
R

p.s. thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes!
p.p.s. I'm giving away a goodie over on Old Red Boots! Help Lauren celebrate her 30th birthday!

  8. 4,400 miles!!! That is a serious number of hours on the road. I don't think I've ever done a road trip that intense. But it does sounds like it would be a pretty awesome adventure! :)
