There’s nothing quite like watching the sun rise for the first time on a new year! That radiant light just seems that little bit brighter and lighter and full of endless possibilities. As I felt the first light of 2015’s sun shine upon me I was completely overwhelmed with excitement for all that is to come. And simultaneously so content after an amazing night of belly laughs and connections with my dearest family and family. It was a wonderful moment of pure happiness.

I didn’t actually make any new year resolutions this year. I’ve spent each day of 2014 practicing the art of refining my lifestyle, my thoughts, questioning my beliefs and bringing more love and light to my being each and every day. As the sun rose I simply gave myself a metaphorical pat on the back, a heart felt thank you for taking better care of myself this year. I know I will only continue to expand my heart in 2015 and journey on this path of self love.

It’s been a wonderful year of fulfilling many of my dreams and watching it all unfold before me. I feel such immense gratitude for all the love and support I have received from my beautiful family, friends, work colleagues and cyber community. Thank you to all of my blog followers for the time you take to follow my journey and the beautiful messages you send me.

Here are some pictures from my recent turquoise adventures to Bunker Bay wearing some crochet favourites from the divine Anna Kosturova and Spell and the Gypsy Collective. And check out my 2014 highlights here on Flipagram.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
