Year in Review

It's been awhile since my last post.  Caught up in all the craziness merriment of the holidays I guess.  And here we are...New Year's Eve.  A friend recently told me, "The days are long, but the years are short."  How true that can be! 

This time last year we had sold our house, put everything in storage and moved to a condo while we looked for a new home.  Here we are now: waking up in the perfect home for us, healthy and happy, having gained new friends, strengthened old frienships and gone on amazing adventures. 

Here's a look at my most memorable moments of 2011 and wishing you all the best in 2012!


January - Playing in the condo

February - His fascination with knights begins...

March - Turning two in the new house
April - Fun times in our new neighborhood

May - Sandy toes at the beach

June - Lazy days by the pool

July - Family in Washington

August - Hot Arizona days indoors = creative play

September - Road trippin' with friends
October - Discovering New York
November - Grateful family

December - Christmas magic on the Polar Express

New Use for Petals

It's always fun seeing how people put their Petals to use. 
This holiday season, The Lemonista came up with a particularly sweet holiday gift idea.

She scanned an old black and white photo of her father and uncle from a winter long ago, developed it at Walgreeen's on to one of their pillow shams, and attached a Christmas Itty Bitty to the corner. 

The whole effect is pure holiday magic!

What a darling idea for a wedding, house warming or baby shower gift too.
