I love this time of year, the old drawing to a close as a new one begins to unfold. Like freshly fallen snow the new year lies before me, unmarked and with endless possibilities. If I’ve learned anything over the past couple years, I’ve learned life can do a one-eighty in just 12 short months. So with anticipation I look ahead to what I believe will be a very good year.
Less than one year ago I began my first blog, Line Drawings. Here is my very first entry:
A couple weeks after the start of 2012 my tiny little Eden joined us. Somehow a year has passed. Early on in The Sweet Life I wrote several articles on raising a vegan baby. As Eden enters into her waddler, then toddler years I imagine I will find more to contribute to this section of my blog. In an attempt to create more community, I appeal to all my parent and vegan readers. I would LOVE to hear your stories, adventures, and advices in vegan parenting. If anyone is interested in guest blogging on this topic, please contact me. Likewise, if you have any questions or suggestions let me know and I will work them into the expansion of this topic.
2. Back to health.
After enjoying a delicious and decadent holiday season, I am ready to reset my body. For the month of January, I will be eating a gluten-free and refined-sugar free diet. Additionally I will be juicing at least 4 times a week and eating at least 50 percent raw. Does anyone want to join me for a holiday detox? I would love to open up my blog for the month of January to your recipes, photos, and experiences.
3. For Sale.
Over the next couple months (by popular demand) I will be working on adding a Sweet Life webstore to this site. You will find easy-to-ship foods, drink mixes, and candies (pictured above), as well as made-to-order prints of my photography. Although this transition feels a little strange, I have had many requests for these items and am excited to grow in this way. Are there any other items you would be interested in seeing at The Sweet Life webstore?
I am most excited to be offering…
4. My new ebook!
With a projected release date of late March, I will be selling (at a VERY affordable cost) my first ebook full of raw desserts. Pictured above is my completely raw Banana Cream Pie and Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons. I have been crazy-excited about this project and can’t wait to have it available!
What else 2013 has in store? only time will tell.
Thank you again for being part of The Sweet Life’s beginning. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
