first post of 2012 // ringing in the new year

Justin had to work on the eve of the new year, but thankfully,
I had some girlfriends who were happy to have a low-key girls' night in.

I sent out a last minute invite and the girls did not disappoint.
Saucy red lips and sparkly nails and some of the prettiest lacey tights you ever did see arrived for our little fĂȘte.

We blew out candles on crackbrownies because it seemed like the celebratory thing to do.

 We popped the bubbly and toasted one another a lovely good year as the midnight hour chimed.

Low-key nights can make some of the very best celebrations, I am convinced.

I have loved the friendships, the creative outlet and the consistency my little blog brought me in 2011,
and I very much look forward to all that 2012 holds for me here in blogland.

Come back soon for some b i g news!
