Happy New Year!

New Year 2015 formed from sparking digits over black background

Good morning readers,

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it is 2015!? I know it’s cliche and everyone says it but the year has flown by so fast. Many, many THANK YOUs to all of our readers for your continuous support.

We hope you all had a great year! If not, we hope that 2015 brings you everything that you didn’t get in the year prior. I know that I am definitely wishing that this year goes a lot smoother than 2014. I’m not making any New Year resolutions because it is hard to keep those. I will, however, create small goals throughout the year. Like, paying off both credit card bills and getting a car (hey! a girl can dream, right!?)

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

― Neil Gaiman

August: Romance Awareness Month

Jessica & Albert

It’s August! This month is Romance Awareness Month. Crushing on someone? In love? Married? This month, show them a little extra love. Here are 15 ways to show your love:

1. Make food for them when they come home from work or school.

2. Let them pick the movie tonight.

3. Give them an extra long hug.

4. Compliment them and let know they are special to you.

5. Laugh at their jokes even if they aren’t funny.

6. Tell them you love them and remind them why you love them.

7. Buy or create a gift for them.

8. Send them a random text to let them know you’re thinking about them.

9. Do something they want to do, even if you don’t like it- pretend.

10. Encourage them and support their goals and dreams.

11. Thank them and let them know you appreciate the things they do for you.

12. Ask them how their day was and really listen to them.

13. Ask them for advice, it shows that you value their opinion.

14. Plan a surprise breakfast, lunch, or dinner date.

15. Say sorry when you are wrong.

Of course there are many other things you can do to show your love. The biggest thing to me is letting them know you love them. Sometimes it is nice to just hear those three letter words. Happy Romance Awareness Month!

If you’re very much in love with them, I challenge you to a 30 day love project on Instagram. Post a photo a day of them and a reason why you love them. Use hashtag #loveproject to be featured at the end of August.
