Monday, December 31, 2012


It's that time of year again, time to end one year and start another. Last year I couldn't wait to hurry the old year out the door. While 2012 didn't start out so great, the 2nd half of 2012 has been much, MUCH better and so I find myself able to look back fondly on the year as a whole. This December 31st finds me content and happy and looking forward to the future in a way I haven't in a long time. I have so many projects that I want to complete in the coming year, so many roads to explore.

Apparently I don't write much when I'm happy as I totally crapped out on blog posts since September so here are a few snapshots of the last few months.

My view each day

autumn brings sunshine and fleeting warmth to our coast

Carmel's own Hugh Comstock, the focus for me in 2013

15+ years of friendship

spontaneous getaway #3 - birthday surprise

and finally, here's a little taste of our Christmas

I may not have been able to attend Laurapalooza this year but at least I scored a set of her canisters

And so, a fond farewell to 2012 and a happy hello to 2013. I can hardly wait to see what you bring to the party!
