I wanted to do a little photo roundup of my year. I found pictures you've never seen and many you have. It's long so if you need a nap, now may be the time.
I reunited these 2 pieces of luggage. It really is a love story and one of patience. And you can read about it here.
In March I decided to veganize my wardrobe. We know how that worked out now. All three pairs of these shoes fell apart. I was especially sad to lose the Burberry Sandals on the right.
In April my son Alex started his own clothing business based on this striped sweater. He's still going strong.
The rose garden maintained its high achiever status this year.
Producing blooms like this. This photo makes me happy and sad. It reminds me of losing my dear friend Miss Doris this year. That mirror hung in her home and now in mine and is a daily reminder of her endless style and class.
Of course my trip of a lifetime. These blooms can only be from the 100th anniversary of the Chelsea Flower Show. How on earth I ever got so lucky...I'll never know. I look through my photos often and think back to all the amazing things I saw and the incredibly wonderful and sweet people I met. Soooooooososososoooooo lucky.
And then from England over to France. Paris, Provence and the French Riviera. Still cannot believe it was me who went for 21 days.
This vegan ceasar salad. The most popular recipe I've ever put on this blog.
This Trina Turk jacket that I got at the Goodwill for $5.99.
Which brings us to today. Larry bought me this top for my bday and I can't decide if I love it or hate it. It is silver brocade and has a v back with a bow. Why I didn't take a pic of the back...I don't know. Anyway it feels vintagey and at the same time space agey. This may be its only public outing ever.
Anyway that was a lot of my year.
I want to thank you again for reading along. This is the luckiest blog on the planet because of its faithful, interesting, loving, kind and smart readers. I really don't know how we both got so lucky.
I hope the new year brings us all good health, simplicity and a dash of style.
