An Ode to 2014 by Georgina of Notes on Lifestyle

Hello Cupcakes & Couture readers! My name is Georgina and I am a fellow Bostonian that blogs over at Notes on Lifestyle.
While I write mainly about beauty, décor, fashion, fitness, food and travel (some being Boston-centric,) I have also been quietly penning a quarter-life memoir!

My loves include weekend antiquing jaunts, bouquets of fresh blooms, classic literature, time spent within close vicinity to the water, entertaining, all types of delectable cuisines and an impossibly deep appreciation of art and photography.
I thought I would talk about reflection, gratitude and success in the hopes of providing motivation and positivity during this exciting birth of a new year!
… We can be thankful for the friends and contacts we have made within the blogging community during 2013. Each step we take; from attending local blogger events to regional or even national conferences is a significant one. Be proud of each action as it is bringing you closer to more remarkable achievements and memories.

… We can be thankful for our creative outlets, many of them being our blogs. Though our daily life may be spent in an office, lab or other vital institution, our blogs have remained a place just for us. Through them we are able to develop our voice, cultivate our writing skills and even work with brands we admire.
… We can be thankful for those that are a constant source of encouragement and kindness, whether it be our family or significant others. These are the people that put up with us when we are far from our best and remind us that things could always be much worse.
Each year should be about progression and if we were to look back at a year and not feel it was full of change and “firsts” then we would know we have remained stagnant.
Challenge yourself this year to meet as many people as you can, cherish those already in your life, note all of these experiences and take chances. You will never look back on those leaps of faith and regret having had the gumption to go after a dream.
