Phew! The holidays were a complete whirlwind, weren't they? After a marathon month of shopping, decorating, wrapping, partying, and traveling, I am glad to be back in the saddle and diving into a new year. But before grabbing 2012 by the pants, I thought I'd share a few slices of life/style from the season. Aside from Words With Friends, Instagram is my absolute favorite thing about the iPhone which I finally got in November, and I can't stop posting pics and gawking at everyone else's. As you can see, the season adorned me in lots of sparkles, polka dots, bubbly, and a certain neon pink shirt I can't seem to take off. How about that twins moment from the West Elm party with Bri, Margaux, and Sarah? Totally unplanned of course. You were great 2011, but 2012 is going to be the most stylish and inspiring year yet. Mark my words!
