A Full Retrospective

Goodbye 2010.  You were a very full year.  Full of love and romance,

God provided for us, in His timing, a new house to call our own,

And to fill to the brim with sunshine, love, and too much stuff.

Lots of crafts were made...paper, stitched, crocheted.  Too many to count, in fact.

While we weren't yet blessed with little chicks of our own, we've cuddled many a good substitute.
Spring brought a new song to our hearts, full of optimism and merry-making.
Being back in Oceanside to stay meant we could act like tourists in our own town.
Arts and culture were sandwiched in between good restaurants and the good ole Coastal Lifestyle we love.
July meant discovering Portland, and rediscovering most beloved family.

August was filled with too-short days of foreign-family visits. (Seriously, too short...always is.)

I spent our summer (and our money) decorating our bedroom and I quite like the results!

Not nearly enough time was spent painting.  Lilly and I were both a bit exhausted from other responsibilities.
School means back to the grind...where even parties are work.
This girl had a milestone birthday, ushered in with a non-surprise party which ended in smiles and rollerskates.
The year ended with my first ever Christmas Eve dinner hostessing.  (It was a smash hit.)
