2011 - What A Year!

~ Happy Twenty Twelve ~

Looking back over 2011, it was quite the year. 

From snowball fights and snow painting in January...
to celebrating that crazy love thing in February and my 10th with my hubby in April...
picnics and trips in the summer to see the Duke and Duchess,
to the return of the school year and a new family member in the fall,
and finishing out the year with a thankful heart and a peace-filled home :)

There were projects and parties throughout,
and each season brought its own unique celebrations.

I thank each and every one of you
for following along on this passionate journey of mine :)

I love sharing my enthusiasm for beauty, for blissful moments, love of family and friends,
and my heartfelt joy in celebrating life's random, ordinary moments...the seasons, the holidays, and all of the other little things that bring us happiness.

It really is the little things in life that matter.

Having lost my parents younger than most,
I live with the life philosophy to make each moment count...
to love with abandon,
to bring beauty to the ordinary,
to create fun out of the mundane,
to live life passionately,
and to surround my loved ones and friends
with joy, charm, and sweetness :)

2012 has just begun.
A new year is filled with hope...
a clean slate as Anne Shirley would say,
"...with no mistakes in it yet."

happy new year!
