Let’s Celebrate!

December 28, 2016



As I sit here writing what will be my last blog post of 2016, I find myself overwhelmed with a deep sense of gratitude. Personally, 2016 has been the most challenging and interesting year to date. I’ve always considered myself a “lucky” person: the vast majority of my life, the wind has always seemed to somehow fall at my back. Unforeseen, 2016 brought upon unexpected illness peppered with disappointment and uncertainty.

However, it also opened the door for self-reflection, shifting the fundamental focus of my days to health and healing, family, and a renewed outlook on life. In all, looking back I can say that I was given a great gift this year, and that gift was GRATITUDE.

I’m beyond grateful for my recovering health, my loving and supportive family & friends, and for my two healthy and thriving children.

I’m also incredibly grateful for all of you! This blog has been years in the making but finally came to fruition this summer. It’s been so much work (starting a blog is not easy friends) but has proven to be rewarding beyond measure. I have absolutely LOVED connecting with all of you. I feel very privileged to get to do what I love, and I’m humbled by all your support and kind words.

I’m so excited for 2017 and can’t wait to share more with you, expanding on my fashion, entertaining, travel, and food content. What would you like to see more of? Less of? Shoot me a note: hello@doreencorrigan.com – I’d love to hear from you!!

It’s time to CELEBRATE friends. Cheers to 2016 & to the NEW YEAR upon us!

Much Love!

“What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.”
