baubles & bubbles.

i hope 2012 has been treating everyone extremely well so far!  yesterday was back to work for me after a 4 day break and now, back to the blog (which is infinitely more fun!).  taking a blog break last week felt odd - like i was leaving something important out of my day.  but it was also a good way to step back from it, and, as we are wont to do at the end of the year, reflect and resolve.  a bit more on that in a moment, but first, some fun pics of how we all rang in the new year in snowy northern michigan.  i was feeling under the weather and still am, but sheer will power made it a super fun night regardless.

made this.

and these.

wore these.

and these.

{opi blonde date + bring on the bling}

and then we celebrated.

 {i think mr. moose had fun}

{trac, andy + bella - i swear that first pic is not staged, they're just that obsessed!}

{midnight toast}

{technology!; sisters}

{who needs a refill?!}

and now for the resolutions.  like last year, i'll be working on my 2012 intentions letter (idea c/o jess of makeunder my life) (shout out to diane who picked up the practice last year to great success!) over the next week or so, but i also have one big thing i want to work on in 2012, and i'm putting it here to hold myself accountable.  see, i'm a terrible phone person.  i hate talking on it for whatever reason, and i avoid it at all cost.  and that means even though i miss my family like crazy (yeaaa i know they're only five hours away), and while we email/text multiple times a day, i don't hear their voices even close to often enough.  and so, in 2012, i resolve to call them. much. more. often.  there, i said it.

as for blogging resolutions, i'm still mulling some of that over.  but i think 2012 calls for a facelift.  it also calls for more of my personal pictures (guess who got her first d-slr for christmas and badly needs to take a photography class?!  this girl!!), and more substantive/thoughtful posts.  as i try to find my place in this great big blogging world, i hope to do good by you, dear readers, in 2012.
