| To impart new health, vigor, or spirit to.

| To renew in the mind; recall.

Revive. This is my word for 2014. Last year was a tough year for me and my family. We had a lot of struggles and setbacks, but by the grace of God, we have overcome and now ready to move forward and live.

I am feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to take on the new year. I want to do everything I’ve put on hold – reconnect with the world, travel, get married, and follow my dreams.

I want to design, create, and be an inspiration to others.

Here’s to 2014!!

    Happy new year Victoria! I have had the worst year of my life to. I lost my husband and my daughter lost her father to cancer.. I have been fighting so hard to stay positive and be a good rolemodel for my two year old daughter, and I finally have beginning to start thinking that I might actually be happy again.

    I wish you and your family all the best in the year ahead! I look forward to continue reading your blog. I also want to thank you for being such a huge inspiration for me. You truly have the most beautiful blog and I love every word you write. Thank you!

    Hugs from me and Miley.
