2010 for the win!

oh my goodness this year has flown by. Jonathan and I had a big year, and I am so excited to see what next year will bring. Since Tomorrow marks the last day of 2010 I thought it would be be a great opportunity to review some of the great things that happened to us... here it goes!

In March Jonathan and I took our annual trip Portland to celebrate the day we met/started dating. (yes, they both happened on the same day :)) The Ace Hotel is our go to place. It's great.

On that same trip I discovered my favorite little building ever!

In April we went to the Tulip Festival just outside of Seattle. It was cold, but really pretty!

In May some of my best girlfriends and I went to Vegas for my bachelorette party! Much fun was had. Wish I could say more, but as you know what happens in Vegas...

Just a few weeks after that my best friend got married on the beach in Mexico.

When I got back from that it was time to prepare for my own wedding. Jonathan and I got to spend a lot of time with family and friends. It was so much fun even Biker Fox stopped by our pre-wedding party...

Then, on June 26th we got hitched! YEAH!!!!!

Next came our honeymoon. It was an unforgettable trip, and we can not wait to go back!

After our 3 week honeymoon, it was back to work. And luckily for me that meant riding the ducks with the cutest little boy known to man :)

This Thanksgiving my mom, brother, and sister made a last minute trip to Seattle. Seattle decided to open the skies and pour down snow for their trip. I love how our house looks covered in snow...

And sadly after that, it was time to say goodbye to some of my favorite people on the planet. My nanny family went back to South Africa, but not before some quality time was had with the little bunny.

I now work for Anthropologie, and Jonathan and I are fixing to move to another place. I am a little sad to say goodbye to our first little nest, but excited for the future. We our downsizing so we can save more money to travel and adventure more. So hopefully by the end of next year I can blog about our exciting trip to South Africa, and maybe Australia. Oh, and maybe even the success of my new online print shop (coming January 2011!)

So there you have it, our year summed up. Here's to closing chapters, opening new ones, and moving forward with excitement and ambition! Salut!

So, thanks to my friend Sarah Rhoads I have a new distraction in my life. It's called Pinterest. basically it's an online storage site to put all of those loverly images you just don't know what to do with. I had started a folder on my desktop to put images from the web that inspired me, but there was no organization, and I often got tired of sorting through them all. With pinterest you can divide them up in to categories and then you have these automatic inspiration boards to look at anytime you want! Plus you can follow other people to see stuff they have found, and look at the most discussed images and pictures from all pinterest members. If I were you I would go sign up now and start growing your inspiration boards! Here is my pinterest site!

i'll have a blue (and green) christmas...

I absolutely LOVE this photo shoot of The Girls With Glasses in the newest Rue Magazine. It is so retro and cool and fantastically classy. I want to throw a holiday party JUST like it. And then it got even better when I realized the photo shoot was done at Elvis and Priscilla's honeymoon house! It doesn't really get much cooler than that. I want to go to there...

I want to transport to this living room right now!

I can't believe ANOTHER Thanksgiving has come and gone! This is the first year in a long time that I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my family (minus my dad). My dad had to go out of town over the holiday so my mom, brother, and sister decided to come and visit Jonathan and I in Seattle! The day they got here it started snowing, and didn't stop until the entire city was COVERED in snow. It was beautiful, and it made their visit that much more special.

{yes, that is my christmas tree. it's already been up for a whole week}

We were able to spend the week relaxing, shopping, eating, drinking, and just having fun. It was much needed.
{thanks for my polar bear sweater mom!}

It was also mine and Jonathan's first Thanksgiving as Mr. & Mrs. and we were able to start our own new traditions. For instance, at least 2 bottles of wine must be consumed BEFORE dinner, Beatles RockBand will be played, and Jonathan has to wear his holiday vest...

I mean, how lucky am I to have this hottie as a husband, right? And I think I will leave you with this image. You're welcome.
