I have been in Vero Beach, Florida since Christmas Eve, with my son Jaden, my boyfriend Carl, and his family. These photos capture the essence of part of who we are and how we wanted to bring in the New Year. We love the beach and hang out there any chance we can get.

Although I believe in making daily resolutions, New Year’s is a great time to reflect on improvements that can be made for the years to come. In the New Year I want to be more patient, pray more, and learn to just let things go because I can’t change people. My quote for the New Year is ,” I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says ‘Oh crap, she’s up!’”

How are you going into the New Year?
