Happy New Year

  I did not make any resolutions because there are so many things I want to accomplish and explore that I couldn’t decide on where to begin. All I knew was that I wanted to set realistic goals and actually conquer them! But who doesn’t, right? So this year I am giving up on perfect and moving on with my life. I prayed for God to lead me in the direction he wants me to go, show me clarity and prepare me for his work. I hope that you all have a blessed and prosperous year. Stay tuned, I envision a year full of tips, tricks, and DIY!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.
