My favorite highlights of 2011

As I revisited some of my favorite blog posts of 2011, I couldn't help but get, yet again, giddy with excitement at the fact that my year started with the incredible honor of being published on Somerset Life...!!! I still have to pinch myself!!

Most of my time this last year was focused on preparing for some of my favorite antique shows...

One of my favorite highlights of the year was, without a doubt, a weekend spent with some of my favorite people in the whole wide world... There is nothing better than spending time with fun, creative, exciting, loving and kind women, who make your life richer and meaningful!!!

I brought you along for some of my favorite visits to my favorite antique mall, Monticello Antiques...

I shared some of my favorite finds...

... And some of my favorite creations...

I loved sharing recipes close to my heart...

... And favorite snapshots of my kids doing what they love...

One of my favorite highlights of this past year was my trip to England... A good buddy, a rented car, a map and a sense of adventure made for the very best of times!!!


Finally, as the year approached its end, I opened up about my inner struggles to find peace in my heart... I was warmed by how loving and empathetic you all were, and realized I was not walking alone in my path to finding my way...

I wish you all a wonderful new year, may it be filled with joy, happiness and prosperity, and sprinkled with love throughout!!
