January is coming to a close but we’re just getting started on all the great things ahead in 2014! We started the goal setting process both professionally and personally by first collecting some inspiring images for our “vision boards.” These vision boards contain images that move us visually, have inspiring and motivational messages or are related to action steps we want to make happen to better ourselves.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks where Amber will share goals and plans for 2014 including her “word” for the new year. You can read last year’s word post here.

I wrapped up the last few days of 2013 with a party – a birth day to be exact – by welcoming our new little one to our family. As I embark on this new year, I’m filled with hope for a new year full of sweet delights. I’m looking forward to spending more time creating memories with my family and helping create memorable celebrations for others through our events, designs and products. I added a lot of feminine images to my board in the form of hearts, flowers and shades of pink. I think this is more than just being influenced by our baby girl, but is representative of the desire I have to get back to my core and “heart” in my life and business. I also see the idea of “margin” playing a big role in 2014. The words in these messages below are really speaking to me right now as I start my goal setting worksheets by my friend Lara Casey.

Jessica’s 2014 Vision Board

2013 was an incredible year for me, filled with many grande endings and amazing new beginnings. It was a year of self discovery and affirmation that I should be the person I am at my core. Attending Making Things Happen sparked that more than anything. 2013 was the year I graduated from college, the year that I moved to my first new city after living in North Carolina for 13 years, the year that I started my first “real life” job, and the year that I made an incredible group of new friends while still keeping in touch with old friends. It was an amazing year that I will always cherish.
For me, 2014 will be all about focusing on enjoying the simple pleasures in life. I want to eat more sweets than the doctor recommends, trying every macaron there is to find in Nashville. I want to wear sequins and tulle skirts on ordinary Tuesdays. I want to toast to life with friends and champagne over the smallest celebrations. I want to travel as much as possible, and if I can’t physically travel to Paris, I want to do so through art and literature. I want to read a new book every month to keep my mind stimulated. I want to paint every single day so that I can fill my walls with art. And most importantly, I want to always remember that creativity rules, and strive to find my own personal style of creativity daily. – Jessica
