2014 is here?!

I can't believe I haven't blogged for a month... I honestly have no idea where the last month went! I was swept up in the holidays, I guess. But I'm back and focused on creating more and running the art business stuff!

Here's what you can look forward to from Mary & Luna in 2014:

I've also made a simplified list of my personal resolutions. I do it every year, and it really helps me focus on self-improvement and continuing to build a life I love. I always write a massive private journal entry about the specifics of these goals, but that's not necessary to bombard you all with. So here's what I'm working on in 2014:

2013 was so great in a lot of ways. It was the hardest I've ever worked, the most beautiful traveling I've ever done, and the hardest I've ever played. At the end of the year when it was feeling like a blur, I looked back and the theme came to me: I really lived in 2013.

Last year was all about getting my art business out there, and just getting started. It's only been 7 months since I launched. This year will be about channeling my creativity even more and growing my audience.  I feel much more confident now that this is going to work. I'm realizing just how hard it will be, but I think the reward of creating this little artsy world for myself will be so worth the challenge. I'm constantly learning so much.

So here's to another year of hard work & pouring out my ideas on paper & adventuring through the 365 days. I hope it's beautiful.

I'll end this blog post with some of my favorite photos from my first-ever trip to New York. It was a winter wonderland and so ridiculously classically beautiful. The architecture and the weather and the Christmas spirit. The city itself was chaotic but the places we went were absolutely magical.
