For 2013, I’m praying for less shoes, more family, less ‘me’, more ‘you’, and a LOT more of humbleness when it comes to keeping this blog. Just because some people on Twitter don’t know the difference between ‘you’re’ and ‘your’, doesn’t mean I’m king, right. Or does it. Wishing my readers a blessed New Year, full of love, health and happiness – see you in 2013!
