Ode To 2013

I have been reflecting a lot the last few days... I guess that happens when your birthday and New Years Day are back to back.

Let me share some of my 2013 highlights with you. In "SimplyShakera" fashion, I have grouped photos below into three categories. I’m sure the titles of the categories come as no surprise.

2013, you have allowed me to grow so much! Faith and Fearlessness work magically. Between starting a new business and building a personalized career, I am surprised my head hasn't fallen off yet. Despite the many opportunities that presented them self, I think the most impactful experience has been watching my baby nephew turn into a little man. If I ever need a reason to smile, I think about his first steps or the first time he said "Aunty"... It was his third word <3 He just turned one year old but you would think he's about 13.  Everyday he does something new and exciting which challenges me to do the same.


I would like to thank everyone who has shown me so much love and support along this journey of mine. It will not be in vain – I PROMISE.
For now, let us cheers to the New Year! I wish you all nothing but prosperity and joy.
