HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Did you ring in 2012 with a night on the town or snuggled up by the fire?
I guess you can say we had the best of both worlds dining out with friends and family then hosting a nightcap at our place complete with board games and bubbly.
I'd hoped to write a quick 2011 recap like last year but the time got away from me. My sister-in-law and nephew are in town from Chicago and we've been keeping the boys busy. But I want to mention how endlessly grateful I am for you dear readers, a very real community of support and inspiration for me. This little blog has been the vehicle for some very big opportunities, one of which is Mode Monday, my partnership with Nicole and Kristin, two of the most collaborative and generous people I've met in the blogosphere.
It takes a lot for me to put myself out here. I'm not a size 2 (or 4 or 6) and sometimes it feels like a minor miracle that I'm able to persuade my friends and fam to take pictures of me for each week's post. But it's been immensely entertaining and hugely inspiring to challenge myself and the fact that I've met so many others that make the time for themselves and are willing to share their inspiration is icing on the cake.
I say we make taking care of ourselves, mind, body, and spirit, an even bigger priority in 2012. Who's with me?
