Goodbye 2010

Hello, 2011!  2010 was a good year for us... just like any year there will be highs and lows, but as long as you are growing as a person you can call just about any year a good one.  Here are some highlights from ours (super image heavy!):

I made lottttttssssss of animals!

I got a pretty new tattoo (only one because...)

I found out we were having a baby!

I did a Renegade and met lots of wonderful people (top photo is Katie's)!

 Alec's photo
I acquired several more Blythes, including a Kenner head that I cleaned up and gave a pretty body!

 I got to be part of a really fun shoot.  (Concept and styling by Elsie, photos by Alec)

I collected lots more records.

And I spent way too much wonderful time with these two.

All in all, it was a great year.  2011 will be interesting with a new baby who is almost here, a plan to relocate, and a ton of new schemes up our sleeves.  Here's to a great year ahead!

xoxo Katie
