happy new year!

Ummm…does anyone know where the month of December went? Not to mention the first 5 days of January?! Well, none the less, here is my first blog post of 2012. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. We were blessed to spend a whole 8 days with some of my favorite people in Minnesota. We had a wonderful time celebrating the season with my family and friends that I’ve known from high school. We had a ton of fun, but are so glad to be home…especially after we took a 6:55 am flight on New Year’s Day.

Here we are ringing in the New Year at our hat themed New Year’s party.

Since it’s the time of year to be thinking about goals, I thought I’d give you guys a quick update and share some goals for 2012.

As many of you know I have moved on from my job at Steven Moore Designs. It’s amazing how having a child causes you to examine your life and readjust your priorities. It was a tough decision, but I’m looking forward to the new possibilities that await.

I’m putting together a little running group to train and then run Seattle’s Rock and Roll Half Marathon in June. I’m super excited to get back into running and I’m looking forward to running with these girls. I’m hoping our commitment to each other will keep us encouraged and accountable.

I am planning on spending more time on this little blog. I’m looking forward to posting more about entertaining, recipes, DIY projects and a little about my family too. I have lots of plans for re-dos, crafts, and sewing projects I’d like to do. Not to mention I will be planning a first birthday and 30th birthday party this year. Yay! I’m so excited!

Thanks for sticking with me these past 3 years, I’m so thankful for those of you who continue to read and encourage me in this little endeavor.
