HIGHLIGHTS AND HOPES:SHANNON DARROUGH


Hi y'all, I am Shannon Darrough from I Love Your Crazy. I'm overjoyed to share this year's highlights and future hopes on Daily Crush today. I cannot believe 2012 is already here! I've been listening to a beautiful version of "Auld Lang Syne" by Diane Taraz all week long. There are many translations of this classic New Year's tune, but to me the song is a toast to memories of the past year. I listen to it every December, but the song has struck a new chord this year.  So many of my lifelong dreams came true in 2011. You can bet I will be raising my glass multiple times at the stroke of midnight.

The Highlight Reel:

I married the man of my dreams ...


I started my own little company ...
I became a homeowner ... (and moved 1,200 miles away from Texas to North Carolina)



Hopes for 2012:

My hopes for 2012? Goodness, this is tricky because I was so blessed in 2011. Perhaps this is the year I will start that book I've dreamed of writing since I was 11. Maybe, but this is definitely the year I will slow down just enough to enjoy the new home, celebrate my accomplishments before I move on to the next thing, and make time for friends and family. When you have three life changing events back to back to back things become a blur of excitement. If 2011 was my year for big decisions and milestone events, 2012 will be the year to take it all in and embrace those around me.I want to smell the roses in 2012.

Welcome, invite, entertain ...

Celebrate ...


Enjoy the view ...

and perhaps that novel awaits, too.

Hope you all have a very happy New Year! May it be filled with joy and love!
xoxo,
