I wanted to share one of my favorite photos from 2013. I already shared it on instagram months ago (shocker, right?), but it’s worth bringing it back a second time. Keith and I were in Red Hook, camera in tow, and fortunately for us, he was able to capture this incredible moment of the sun setting directly behind the Statue of Liberty. Supposedly this exact moment only happens once a year.
Now 2014 is upon is and I have to admit, I fall into the cliche category of being excited about a new year and a fresh start. My biggest goal for 2013 was to plan our wedding and because of that, it was the best year of my life. It’s going to be an impossible year to beat, but some of my goals and resolutions for this year:
*To have my usual outfit photos, but to also start incorporating other stuff. For example: When I asked what you guys want to see more of, many of you mentioned more New York posts like my food guide, so I promise to deliver!
*To travel, travel, travel! For me, I’d rather spend my money on traveling than on anything else. Life is about creating unforgettable memories and for me, there’s no better way to do that than to travel. I’m so excited to be starting out this year with a trip to Melbourne (more on that later) and a few months after that, Keith and I are planning to go on our Honeymoon. Oh yea, that’s another one of my goals: to finalize and plan that! In between those two bigger trips, I hope to have many mini getaways, even if it’s to go skiing or to recharge at a cozy cabin 2 hours away.

*To rediscover NYC. Like anyone, I have my favorite places that I visit over and over again. While it’s nice to have your regular spots, I’m not going to lie, I’m getting a little bored. The other day I met my good friend, Danny, at Gruppo in the East Village/Alphabet City (his choice and such a good one) and I said to him: “you know what, I’m NEVER in this neighborhood and I know I’m missing out on so many little gems and so much good food..” So with that being said, I want to explore my city a whole lot more.
*Lastly, some of you may know that Keiko & I took the plunge on a big goal of ours and rented a studio space. We’ve both been dreaming about having a place to work out of, a place to get creative and inspired in, a place we can use as a photo studio (both for our purposes and for others to rent), etc.. The goal for this year is to really get it moving. To have some type of “office hours” and to take it to the next level. Anytime I think about it, I get SO excited about the possibilities.
So there you have it! Some of my goals for this upcoming year. What are yours? I would love to hear!
