2019 has officially arrived!

But don’t think for one second I’m gonna give you all that “new year, new me” stuff…because I’m not! Quite frankly, I’m not a “new me”. One day didn’t make me a new person. The stroke of midnight didn’t make a lightbulb go off & allow me to fall asleep and wake up a better version of myself.

But what it did do was allow me to look at my highs and lows of 2018. The close of the year gave me perspective of what I did, who I became and where my heart journeyed too.

2019 won’t deliver a “new me”.

2019 will deliver a better me, a stronger me, a patient me, a kinder me, a confident me, a loving me.

Cheers to being better, better than you were at 11:59 pm, December 31, 2018 -XO

    I love this philosophy for the new year! And look at those pretty, snowy pictures! We have only had snow once this season and that was the first of December! I love the white coat with the pink Hunters. You look so warm and cozy! Hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas! Happy New Year, Shauna!

    xo, Rachel

  16. I’m with you – a slighter better me – although probably not in January – where I have a basket of chocolate to finish, a virus to get over and a lazy brain after too much down time haha xx Maria

  17. Dorota says:

    I’d love to believe that one day can change someone, as I would definitely like to improve myself overnight. Unfortunately, as you said it doesn’t work like that (again, unfortunately).
    Great pictures, you look so happy!

  18. Nicely said Shauna. Could not have said it better. Wishing you a fabulous New Year. Swooning over your coat by the way.


  19. Mercy says:

    I believe so too, a better me sounds more real than new me. This is such a nice wintry picture with green trees in the background. That’s honestly the warmest coat I’ve seen. Happy New Year!

  20. Lyddiegal says:

    If only it were that easy! The turn of a calendar page to reset your mind and make you fresh and new.
    But hopefully, slowly we can create better versions of ourselves.

  23. So true Shauna, we can just strive to be the best we can each year. I so agree to your philosophy! I love this snow bunny look, great jacket and love the pink boots! Love the winter wonderland πŸ™‚
    thanks for linking!

  24. I couldn’t agree more Shauna! I never set any New Year resolutions that in most cases don’t last any longer than a month anyway. I try to be more consistent through the year and just improve little things in small steps. xx
