HAPPY 2013!!!

Happy New Years everybody! Unfortunately I woke up yesterday with a bad case of food poisoning, but not even that could take away my excitement for a new year! And to celebrate the mister and I stayed in, ordered pizza and breadsticks, drank LOTS of water to keep me hydrated, watched the ball drop with Ryan Seacrest, did a little smooching, spotted fireworks off our balcony, slow danced to 'Auld Lang Syne', and headed straight to bed. I hope you all had a night full of magic, surrounded by the ones you love, and a hopeful list of resolutions to accomplish! Top resolutions on my list: to love more, to laugh more, to read more, and to explore a new area.

The end of 2012 also brought a quick trip up to the Taylor's family cabin over the weekend. We played in the snow, took way too many pictures, walked around the cozy town of Leavenworth, and ate scrumptious food in our secret spot.

How did you ring in the new year?

  15. Once again I have so many thoughts in my head that involve a little cabin and town like this (which makes me rather jelly of you doll)! The darkness to this photos is very raw and very lovely! I am sorry you are not feeling well. I had the flu over Christmas and Jason just caught it (I have no idea how) so my new year was spent in bed with him watching Louis C.K.'s show Louie.
    Also I'm sorta digging this new layout doll!

  47. Hello! Just found your blog and skimming over it has been a delight. There is some magical about white christmases in the northern hemisphere that makes Australian xmas seem lacking greatly in this aspect. I suppose the grass is always greener on the other side. The quality of your photos is epic :D Happy new year!

  69. Ugh ME TOO! Honestly is there anything worse than food poisoning? I think not. I've been sick all day and literally thought I was going to die last night. ha ok that's an exaggeration but still, it's the worst!

    Also, I am beyond in love with your blog. Your pictures are beyond gorgeous and I'm just really drawn to it in general. I also definitely am using the above cabin picture as my iPhone screensaver at the moment, ha it's gorgeous! (Unless you don't want me to of course, than I will without a question take it off. I do give credit where credit is due if anyone asks me where I got it though so that will explain if you get any new followers linking from me. :) Happy New Year girl!

  70. Such cozy photos! I love all of the pretty lights. I hope you're feeling better now and have gotten over whatever you acquired. A quiet night in might have been just what you needed. Unfortunately, I've been insanely busy with work lately, so I didn't stay up very late. I think I went to bed right at midnight. However, I had spent an earlier part of the evening with a good friend, drinking white wine and watching TCM. :)
