Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, my darlings! I can't believe it's already 2011, can you? It's the future! :) I hope everyone has a wonderful, wonderful year in store, full of unexpected surprises and delights.

I'd love to take a quick look back over the past year, which has been a big one...

Last year at this time, we had just announced that we were expecting a baby, and we were only a few days away from finding out that it was a boy. How our lives have changed since then! If you're in the mood to read back through the archives, here are a few posts, which I hope you've enjoyed, about...

Pregnancy, like belly shots, breastfeeding and our birth story...

Babies, like nursery inspiration, baby portraits, and all about Toby...

Photography, like Mick Jagger, bubbles, Paris and kissing...

Food, like banana bites, grilled cheese and cookies...

Weddings, like the perfect ponytail, a backyard affair, and white overalls...


Home decor, like an indoor trapezeback gardens and our apartment tour...

Art, like an espresso print, painted people, and frame walls...

Design, like book coversmap quilts and animal boxes...

Fashion, like grey trenchestomboys and autumnal trends...

Beauty, like a Maine perfumechoppy haircuts and tattoos...

Funny things, like tourist lanes and napping adventures and the Leaning Tower of Pisa...

Travel, like an Iceland escape, sea lions, a treehouse hotel, and bicycle rush hour...

And a smattering of random other things, like personal posts about my family and marriageThe Shining (re-imagined), Halloween costumes, and a short film that will break your heart.

Thank you again for a wonderful year! I'm so grateful that you're here. Very much looking forward to a fun 2011 together. xoxo

Oh my goodness I just ready your birthing story and started to tear up myself. It brought back such sweet memories of bringing my two little one's into the world. My favorite part of the whole experience was hearing that first cry. That's when you realize that you love this little person more than you've ever loved anything else in your life. AMAZING! Thanks for sharing all that you do.

I went to Iceland last year, and it was the best thing I ever did in my life, other than saying "Yes" to my husband, and getting married.

I highly recommend you go one day, if you haven't already.

XX.
