{Inspiration} 2016 Dream Rock

Happy 2016! I've had this idea for a while to use the Rocks De Vie logo as a template for a "Dream Rock" vision board. What better day to put this in motion than New Year's Day. This year I'm hoping to revisit some of my favorite spots & friends in Northern California, keep on playing beach volleyball, practice calligraphy & hand lettering, and focus on building & working towards the future!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
