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


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


, like Mick Jagger, bubbles, Paris and kissing

, like banana bites, grilled cheese and cookies


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

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


, like book coversmap quilts and animal boxes


, like grey trenchestomboys and autumnal trends


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
