2011 Reflections

My family's Christmas tree - the perfect mix of old and new ornaments

As my favorite season and the year come to an end, I wanted to thank everyone for their continued support of ES.  The blog has been an inspiring addition to my life and I am looking forward to bringing new ideas and improvements to it in 2012.  Since I am a very lucky girl, my big Christmas gift this year was a new camera (I've had my eye on this one for months).  I am beyond excited to learn how to use it and bring high quality photos to ES.  During my trip home, I spent a wonderful few days relaxing with family and friends, eating delicious home-cooked food, and watching all of the classic Holiday movies.  In between my time in front of the fireplace and trips to the kitchen, I took some practice snapshots with my new gift.  I certainly have a lot to learn, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites.  Each of them remind me of my cozy house and the wonderful time I had this holiday season.  Happy New Years everyone; see you next year.  Xoxo
