My favorite highlights of 2010

As I look back into this ending year, some favorite moments come to mind... Here are my personal favorite highlights from 2010, as were shared in this blog...

At the top of the list has to be our summer family trip to Europe. It had been two years since I had been  back home to visit mom in Portugal, and it was wonderful! We also took off for a few days to visit Rome and Venice (Italy).

Pena Palace (Portugal)

Obidos (Portugal)

No doubt, some of my favorite moments of 2010 were spent visiting the most amazing shows created by some of my favorite people!!! These friends of mine do know how to create magic...

 I could not resist sharing some of my favorite vintage finds and creations...

Some of my favorite moments of 2010 were spent on the road, at these memorable shows I was so fortunate to be a part of...

I excitedly shared some of my favorite recipes...

... As well as some fun tutorials...

One of my favorite posts was a visit to my friend Leah's gorgeous home....

... Which inspired me to finish a room makeover years in the making...

On a more personal note, I poured my heart out about the hardships of being an ex-pat...

But nothing has been more fun than spending time with people I love, be it friends...

... Or family!!!!

Lots of love to you all...
Happy New Year!!! Feliz Ano Novo!!!
