N is for New Years

Happy New Year 2011!

I am officially back and I have to say it's good to be back. I've missed blogging and all of you so very much and can't wait to start off the new year with a bang!
First let me wish you all a very happy new year. May all your your wishes, dreams and resolutions come true. It's so amazing to think that another year has gone by and another one has begun. I like to take this time to think back on the year and remember some of the highlights and how much has changed for better or worse. And I have to say 2010 wasn't a bad year for me at all.

2010 Review


My husband and I moved from Colorado to good ol' Kentucky to be closer to family.


My great grandmother turns 97!!! and my dad visits from England.


Hubby turns 31 and we get an IPod touch (not huge but we had wanted one for a while).



My third niece is born (but we won't get to see her till the following December).


Autumn/Winter 2010 Couture fashion show week in Paris (wish I had been there). Dior WOWs me with their collection which was obviously made for me with les fleurs, les coloures and les robes! J'adore Dior! I turn 23!


My parents move back to America! Katy Perry's Teenage Dream album, as popular as it was, remains on of my favorite albums of 2010 especially with the release of her most recent single, 'Firework'- cheesy but genius.


My husband get's his green card after almost 1 year of waiting!!!! In a play, "The Foreigner"- see photos here!


Started blogging at Imagine.Create.Play and meeting great people. 2 year wedding anniversary. Taylor Swift's new album is released. 


Happy Thanksgiving! One of the first years I watched Macy's Day parade (I KNOW!). Bruno Mars!!


Happy Hannukah! Trip back home to England after 18 months and to Israel for the first time! (will be posting pictures soon so stayed tuned).

It's definatley good to be back.
