the last hurrah

happy new year's everyone!
this year has been amazing and i can't believe it's almost over!
it seems like just yesterday i started this blog.

 in 2011:
and i made snow angels for the first time * lars wore the cone of shame
jazz took me to see peter pan for valentine's day 
we made sandcastles on the beach and celebrated our third anniversary  
i spent my summer (class) watching movies * we discovered how much we ♥ pizza
we moved into a not-apartment and finally had people over for dinner
i also discovered hot yoga and did a friend's wedding (& engagement) photography

i'm so grateful and happy to have had such wonderful blog friends/readers.
all your support and encouragement means a great deal to me,
and i might have given up without it.
so thank you!
 i'm looking forward to celebrating another year, even though
i probably wont be blogging every single day, cause, you know,
it's kind of hard, and right now i'm off to celebrate the new year
with jazz on the lake with no internet for at least 48 hours!
but don't worry, the big fête isn't over!

happy 2012!

celebrating tomorrow.

i've never celebrated new year's eve with anything that spectacular,
except for the party we had at our maison in paris that year i studied
abroad, which may have been an xmas party, i dont recall...all my
new year's celebrations have been celebratorily challenged,
to say the least. but for some reason, this year, i want to see a ball
drop, wear a mask, cheer a parade on, have a dance party,
tip my hat, clink glasses and...i dont know....wear glitter?

so, since i'll be doing all those fun things tomorrow, we're having
a low-key night tonight. just hanging this painting jazz made me
for my 25th birthday, along with some shelves. i really love shelving.

while hanging shelves and other house projects :

trash or treasure?

even though i have a lot of writing to do
over the next few days before my winter
quarter starts, i've been trying to enjoy
my break a bit, too. 
so i explored kudzu antique market
which i've been wanting to check out. 
oh the things i could have bought: !

oh that dreamy (faux) fur coat!

a little java and quiet time
for my writing evening.

sugar and spice and everything nice.

my dear gloria is spending 
the night with us on her way to 
california and brought us
(they kind of blew all our macarons out of the water)
how is that for a sweet gift?

possibly about to die of deliciousness.

p.s. happy first day of winter!
