I put together a little photo-year in review. It's fun to condense the year this way. Some nice memories.
Also . . . some things I was liking/loving/obsessed with in 2012:
:: stripes. I can never get enough. I adore them.
:: cornichons and dill pickles. Yum! The first three-quarters of the year it was cornichons. Then I switched to the kosher dills they sell at Trader Joe's. Highly recommended. I include these with every packed lunch.
:: roses. I really embraced roses this year. I wish we could grow them! (We always get a few while our neighbors get dozens and dozens and dozens). How I love a bouquet of home grown roses. In childhood I didn't think much of them . . .
:: reading books. I started reading books again--inspired by the ease of having books on my iPad and phone.
:: magazines on the iPad. What I love about this is the lack of clutter. Magazines are such a problem clutter item for me.
:: clutches. I love this purse shape. I bought one this year. In 2013 I'd love to buy another. (I'm holding my clutch here).
:: solids. I realized the wardrobe power of solids. I love them and they always look good (also stripes and checks and plaids).
:: Sarah Carey's Everyday Food videos. These inspired me in my quest to make healthy dinners.
:: family beach trips. I'm overcoming my fear of the messy/sandy details and embracing the soul nourishing power of the beach.
:: bangs. They are fun and youth-ifying.
:: nail polish. Never gave it much thought before. Now I love it.
:: EOS lip balm. The first lip balm I've been consistent about using. The shape is just so convenient and addicting.
