new year, new YOU! Happy 2014

December was a crazy month - holiday madness in full a good way! I started teaching at a local gym, went home to celebrate my birthday with my near and dearest, worked like crazy and spent our first Christmas together in Montreal. Needless to say, no time for a pose of the month:(

2013 was a great year, and 2014 will be even better. New beginnings, new memories, new adventures. Live your life to the fullest and take action for YOU.
