My favorite photo of the year...taken at a park in Tribeca on a warm day in October. It was the first time that Lucia was able to enjoy the water by herself since she didn't start walking until September. We were very happy to get one more (and unseasonably) warm day.
This was a year of some major challenges and successes both personally and professionally. I'm so thankful for every single one of my experiences and I am all ready to head into 2012!
I have a few new resolutions for this year and yes, a few that are left over from 2011. Among them, I want to work on using my time more efficiently (no small feat), visit museums and galleries more often, exercise more, spend more time on myself and not feel guilty about it, speak to my baby in Spanish more often than I do now, drink more water, take more time to feel proud of my accomplishments, see my friends more often, and well, the list is rather long.
And, well, you can't really move forward without taking acknowledging where you've been so here's a look back at some of my favorite moments on 2011.
What about you?
Here's to an exciting new year for you and for me!
The possibilities are endless.

I loved this window at Bergdorfs so much that I decided to make it my holiday card. Too good and perfect.
This has been such an exciting year for me both personally and professionally. Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement, visits, comments and emails. I appreciate it more than you know!
Happy holidays to you and yours!

I'm feeling inspired by these photographs. They remind me of spring and a promise that something good is coming. The images seem to have an innocence that does not surprise me given that the photographer is just 15 years old. But, they also have an underlying edginess that tells me that this girl is an old soul.
I love the dreaminess of these photos. I like that they seem to be spilling secrets about something that I want to know more about.
All photos by Amber Ortolano (who by the way is only 15 years old!) and via here. And thanks to the Lil Bee for sharing them in the first place.
