Happy New Year!

Here's to more smiles and joy for 2023-designaddictmom
How are you? I hope you got some great rest over the holidays. As we usher in 2023, I am just truly grateful for everything. Last year, I embraced more intentional living, started learning to play the guitar, soaked up family time, we bought a few more properties(including the house next door to us-we affectionately call that one Grandma's house), I accomplished some awesome things creatively,  but I was also conscious about taking mental breaks, and shutting out the noise that is inherent to being on social media. I will continue to embrace the intentional living mindset this year and take joy in the little things. I have a number of projects that I haven't yet shared, so I am excited to share those with you. Of course, they're colorful!  Here's to more smiles, more color, more joy! xx
