    You look a lot like Michelle Bridges in the October photo with your niece! (She’s a personal trainer on the Aussie biggest loser and I mean it as a total compliment!)

    It looks like you had an action packed year:)

    I love this! What a wonderful year you had! And I’m right there with you in the third life crisis/soul searching department. But that’s what makes life such an adventure, right? :)

      Aww, thanks, Beth! Funny because I’m seriously toying with the idea of a redesign :)
