Gosh, I love you guys

2010 was a huge year for me... HUGE. I grew up more this year, than any other year of my life. I put my own happiness first, left my job in advertising and followed a dream I had since I was a little girl- becoming an interior designer. I have completed two semesters of design school, even when I wasn't sure design school was the route I should be taking. I made my new condo a home that I am so happy to live in. I traveled to an area in Italy I had been wanting to go to my whole life. I started this amazing blog. And I celebrated 7 amazing years with my boy.

The most exciting part about 2011, are all the things I can't wait to do! Plan a vacation to somewhere I've never been (Prague/Istanbul or South America???). Graduate design school. And start a career doing something I truly love!!

I started this blog as a place to save images that I love and here I am less than a year later and its become one of my favorite things! Every time I get a comment or a new follower, I smile. Like a really big embarrassing smile. So thank you amazing readers. You are so inspiring and motivating and amazing. If it weren't for this little blog, I would probably still be sitting in a cubicle secretly reading all of your blogs!

Hope 2011 brings amazing things to each and every one of you!
