the holidays

christmas has come and gone, new years has been celebrated, and recovered from, and now it is back to life as usual. these past few weeks have been very busy and have certainly reminded me that time is flying bye.
this year's christmas was spent with lots of family, food and gifts. it truly is my favorite holiday for so many reasons.

then we were lucky enough to spend new years eve surrounded by our favorite friends.

i couldn't have asked for more.

to top it all off...i do believe our house has become an even happier place, namely because of the following additions:
*our new stereo system, my parents gave us,

which has been continuously playing the likes of ryan binghm and stoney larue

*and, our bedroom accessories beautifully made by my sister

*and although i haven't found the perfect place to hang the painting my father created and gave us, i know it will be just lovely wherever it ends up

it's hard to believe the celebrations are over and a new year has begun.
i can't wait to see what's in store...


  1. Your photos look so fun! It definitely is the best time of the year :) And they are some fantastic presents. That painting in particular is fantastic!

  2. Happy New Year!
