At the start | Where did you start 2014? Give us some background on this year.
2014 was a beautiful year for me. Probably the best of my entire life. I started it engaged to the man I love, and cheered in the new year playing board games, video games, and watching the ball drop with him and Mr. O. It was my last year with a real Christmas tree (we have unfortunately bought an artificial tree this year) and it was still up. My nephew was just turning six, and a niece was just turning one. It was cold in Massachusetts, and I was already ready for the spring. I was working at my previous job, and we were getting ready for our big benefit fairs. The O family was planning on a ski trip at the end of January. It was a great start to the year.

Gorgeous | When did you feel beautiful this year? Why?
This is an easy one for me. I kind of feel like I’m cheating with this answer, but I felt most beautiful at my wedding. It wasn’t about the hair or the makeup or the dress or the veil. It was just that I was so happy, and so shockingly easy going about the whole day, and I felt so wonderful. I really loved committing myself to Mr. O in front of all of our family and friends. That all being said, having the opportunity to now look back on the photographs we have, I also looked beautiful. It was better than anything I could have imagined for my wedding day.

Coulda Woulda Shoulda | What didn’t you do this year because you were too scared, afraid, unsure? Are you going to do it next year? Or maybe you don’t want to anymore?
I don’t want to cop out on this one, but I’m not sure I would have done anything differently in 2014. Pretty huge things happened for me this year. I planned a wedding, changed careers, got married, honeymooned, and turned 30! All of the risks I took were worth it, and in the long run, I think I was really brave this year. The only things I can reminisce on are tiny, minute details that really don’t matter in the long run. There were a few wedding projects I scrapped last minute because I was running out of time, and I didn’t want to be stressed by another project. If I had more time, maybe I would have finished them. I also could have kept a little more up-to-date with my Project Life scrapbooking. But like I said, none of these matter in the grand scheme of life.
