looking back on 2014


It's already the end of 2014...and it was a great year. Honestly, this year I got serious about blogging. I also met so many wonderful, wonderful people from the 'net that I am proud to call friends. <3 

These are some of my favorite posts from this year:



1 / 2 / 3

4 / 5 / 6

I think it's safe to say that my photography is slowly getting better...? Oh well, I'm trying ;)

2014 was a year where I dared to start posting my own tutorials, and it's a lot of fun. I also took multiple breaks.

It got really overwhelming sometimes with studying, family, and friends.
To say I didn't have negative thoughts sometimes would be a lie. Some days I felt like I couldn't make it through. But in 2014, I got closer to God. I found out more about myself. And through things like blogging, I realized there is so much to live for.

I realize that I am so very grateful for readers like you. Your comments keep me going. So, thank you  for that <3

I can't wait until 2015 and all the more to accomplish!! I want to be more optimistic, faithful, and make the most out of my life!

I hope you all have a blessed New Year.

love love love! MJ


  1. Did we just "meet" each other this year? Wow..it seems like longer ♥
    Your photos are definitely improving! They were good at the begging though, too. Photography is a hard thing, I've started trying harder with mine. And I loved all of your tutorials!
    It is wonderful that you achieved so much this year! ♥
    Have a wonderful 2015!
