Counting My Blessings on My Birthday

by | About Me | 4 comments

I can’t believe another year has passed…On my birthday each year, I make sure to slow down to count my blessings, think about the year that has passed and dream build for the year ahead.  Once again, it is evident that I have so much to be thankful for: my family, friends, AWL team, partners and YOU!

While 2021 has had it’s challenges, we’ve been truly blessed with more “normal.”  The girls schools are back in session full time, we’ve attended sporting events and concerts, and traveled as a family and with friends to Turks and Caicos, Mexico and Telluride.

Scott and I celebrated our 26th anniversary this year.  I am extremely grateful to share my life with such a man who pursues the Lord’s will for himself and our family.  He loves me and our girls so well.  Scott is a huge blessing and support to me and our family and I also hope you know the Lord and His love for you, as well.  I am also grateful that my girls are all happy and healthy and that my parents are as well.  They are all my ultimate blessing especially in these times.

Another blessing that I am very grateful for is YOU!  Your support of Alicia Wood Lifestyle and how this community has grown in numbers again inspires me to keep creating.  This year has been extremely busy on the family/personal side. Your encouraging comments on the website, emails with great questions that often inspire blog posts and messages on Instagram, lift my spirits and put a spring in my step on days I need it.  I truly hope this space does the same for you!

My goal is to inspire you to create memories with your family and friends through good food, entertaining at home and travel.  The style and beauty posts are the frivolous fun we all need.  Memories are the sweetest things we have to share with those we love.  I’m working on a lot of new ideas for AWL in 2022 including a new website design to make finding the content you want easier than ever.  If you have ideas of what you’d like to see, please let me know via email or comment below.  I’d truly love to know!

I am so thankful to my many retail partners that make this dream job possible.  Their support also means the world to me.  You can see these brands under the collaborations category.

My FABULOUS AWL team is an amazing blessing!  Sydney (strategy, design, planning, post writing, website and more), Tracey (social media & LTK coordinator), Maddie (creative and design), Audrie, Danielle and Sarah (fabulous photography) and Marc (website guru) are a dream team!  We have some great plans for AWL in the coming year.  An email asking for your thoughts will be coming soon, so please be on the look out!  Until then, I wish you a wonderful end to 2020 and an amazing start to 2022!

Much love and cheers to you on my birthday!
