What a monumental year 2012 has been for me.  While the world didn’t end for the whole of civilization, my world certainly looks so different than this time last year.  You may not know this, but Caviar Dreams is not my first blog.  It is actually my third.  But I’ve grown with it more than the others and I know a lot of it has to do with my marriage, my move, and my gained confidence in who I am and want to be.

I’m looking to 2013 with great anticipation.  Not only do I celebrate my 24th birthday soon, but Ethan and I are approaching our one year anniversary!  As a sort of self-tracker, I’ve thought long and hard about my New Year’s resolutions.  Since I’m not getting any younger, I’ve decided to just freaking do the things I love.  Which includes pouring myself into party planning, treating myself to routine haircuts, and making the most of the time Ethan and I have here in Alaska.  I hope you continue to follow my journey; I hope to bring more inspiring and original content as the year progresses.

Happy New Year’s!
