Since I've Been Gone { 3 Weeks In Instragrams }

Well hello again, blog!

Since I've been gone, I...

- Made candy cane macarons for my Maryland friends.
- Not only mailed out our Christmas cards, but added envelope liners cut from wrapping paper. (FYI: Your favorite design ended up being my favorite too, but alas, none of our photos worked in it. So I went with design 7 and ended up loving the old movie vibe!)
- Said goodbye to Annapolis, Maryland, where B and I lived for the first year and a half of our marriage.
- Drove through Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and right back in to my beloved home state, California.
- Felt overwhelmed by reunions with family and friends.
- Spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sick in bed.
- Cuddled with my family's three dogs, and welcomed two new puppies into my life. (My brother's mini Rottweiler, Rocky, and B's parents' little Frenchie, Oliver.)
- Received some fabulous Christmas gifts.
- Added some great ornaments and Santa mugs to my vintage Christmas collection.
- Basked in the warm sunshine on the Central Coast.
- Went to bed at 10 PM on New Year's Eve.

Looking forward to a new year filled with possibilities. A clean slate. Every year I pick a word to be my focus for the coming year. This year, I resolve to be fearless. If you had to sum up your outlook on 2012 in one word, what would it be?

Happy Belated New Year!



P.S. Dear new followers, I don't know who you are or where you came from, but you make me smile.
Welcome, and I hope you stick around! :)

  1. Ooh my sister's word is fearless too. It works well if you believe in the Mayan end of the world.

  2. Mitra: It's a great word, isn't it? I definitely am not anticipating the world to end this year, but hey, you never know! For me, it's more about claiming the truth of 2 Timothy 1:7: "For God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."
