2014, A New Beginning

Hello 2014, I can honestly say I've been waiting for you. This for me, is my year or at least I'm going to make it my year. There are lots of changes for myself ahead and I'm ready for the ride...

My biggest goal for 2014 is to get out of my comfort zone. Each year I get more and more set in my ways. I'm in my safe, content space but stagnant. I've been a tv producer for 20 years and feeling a bit uninspired as of late, I've decided to try new mediums to utilize my storytelling skills. I've been interviewing over the past month and there are some dynamic job opportunities on the horizon. In 2014, I also want to keep traveling- definitely to Marfa, Texas in the summer (I just reserved a few nights at El Cosmico in July!) and share many more trips and gatherings on Sweet Peach...

I'm excited to keep plugging away at the blog, making it better and more resourceful. Inspired daily by lots of lovely things, I'm ready to showcase a slew of new artists this year (I have a list of over 40 bookmarked currently). As the Made in the USA movement keeps gaining momentum, there is more and more to discover and share, more collaborations on the horizon. This is good...

I look forward to my shift in career and in creating a challenging environment to thrive. This shift has prompted me to make a change at home too, as I'm still in the process of redoing my kitchen. And in the rest of my house, I'm transitioning my style to be more thoughtful, sophisticated, devoid of clutter...(I can hear my mother laughing) 

I'm just ready to get rid of stagnation and force a new experience, which is much easier said than done. It's just too bad it's cold outside. I hate cold weather more than anything else in the entirety of the world. So I need to learn how to deal and get through the sluggish chilly days (while still finding the good parts), in hopes that the spring is all that I hope it to be. Thanks for continuing to follow Sweet Peach and supporting so many of the southern artists featured here. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season...I'll see y'all back here tomorrow with brand new posts. And hello 2014, you better be good...
