Happy New Year & Blogiversary

Since I started blogging three years ago today, I thought I would start off this new year commemorating that momentous decision.
If you look back to my inaugural post, it's extremely boring and not even about design. Kind of embarrassing really, but you gotta start somewhere I guess. I didn't even mention that it was my first post - just decided to start blogging and went with it. I tend to do that. Think about something forever, then finally do it. I'm so glad I did. I've met so many friends and have had such great experiences because of blogging. I plan to keep going, and hopefully you'll follow along and (fingers crossed) see some changes around here in the weeks to come.

So before moving forward, I thought I'd share some snippets from our holiday over the past couple of weeks. We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year with time spent with family and friends. What could be better?
Making cookies for Santa with Uncle Forrest. A Christmas tradition.
 
Putting out reindeer food. Pierce thinks he hears something in the sky above.

After all the preparation, it was all plowed through in a matter of minutes. 
Santa was good to mommy too!  
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much for reading my blog, and I look forward to sharing more with you in this new year!

happy new year Kathy. Did you know that there's a new blogger (interior decorator) in town using the same blog title as you?... I don't know what you do in a situation like this, but thought I should give you a heads up.

Happy blogging birthday, Kathy. It's been so wonderful reading and I'm excited about these changes your hinting at. Can you tell me about your front door? Is that a storm door or is that the actual door? My husband and I just bought our first house (!) and now I'm noticing all of elements I can actually change now that we're not going to be renters forever!
