LBD.




My lovely friends (and neighbors, too!) Tara and Mike are to be wed this coming March and I could not be happier. It will be an elegant affair complete with little black dresses and fancy cocktails. That said, I feel like I have an array of LBD's to choose from, however, this one from vintage Christian Dior just feels like one I need to have in my closet. And also feels like the one I need to wear to that wedding. Le sigh.

Chelsea of Frolic! recently posted these beautiful photos on her blog and said, "These images always feel very hopeful to me." So true. I love how they have a dream-like quality to them and can only make you smile. Sometimes, a little hope goes a long way.

they came and went.



Five days into 2011 and I still haven't posted anything new...until today! The holidays were awesome. Filled with the F trifecta--food, family, and fun--it was everything I had ever hoped for and more. Oh! I also got Christmas cards from two lovely lovely ladies who I hold near and dear to me, although we only "know" one another through the blog world. The holidays came and went just like that, and I can't help but feel slightly let down that we have to start all over. Then again, that only means that we have an entirely new chance to make it even better than the year before, right? This year, on top of my 30 Before 30 list, I am going to try to be more optimistic about things...you know, look at the glass as half-full more often than not. There's just so much to look forward to!
