Christmassy Snaps and some Cheers to a New Year

Christmas was a blast my darlings.  It went by so fast - but isn't that how all magical things go?  It was filled with a delightful German Christmas Eve dinner in honor of my grandmother - rouladen, spaeztles, cabbage, and Christmas soup followed by a night of snowy bliss and a homemade french toast breakfast with curded custard, sticky buns, and breakfast mimosas the next morning.  Of course the presents followed, but more important was the celebration of love, life, and faith during this beautiful season.  Of course above is just a small taste from my wee world.

Now the New Year comes and I can't wait to ring it in.  Here's a little taste of my favorite outfits from the past 12 months.  Nothing much has changed.  I'll always be a gal who loves vintage dresses, lots of bright color, and whimsical head dressings.  It's been one fine year of spending way less, thrifting more, and shopping my closet.  Now that's something I can give myself a pat on the back for :)

So now I bid you a great night, and a short farewell until we meet again in 2013.  Thank you so very much for following along, for lurking, for commenting, for being my far-away friends.  You darlings always brighten my day.  Wishing you sweet celebrations and many many cheers to a brand new year!  

Love Bunches,
