to new beginnings

i hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday and a happy new year! i just got back from my week and a half long vacation on the east coast and feel reenergized and ready for an amazing 2013; the long break was just what i needed.

for NYE, the boyfriend and i went to friend's house for a delicious dinner and then headed out for a night of dancing. the best part of the night was when our gracious hosts insisted that we go around the table and state our resolution for the new year.  it was entertaining, and inspiring. i normally shy away from making resolutions, but this year i received Rosetta Stone for Italian, and so one of my resolutions is to learn Italian (...and plan a trip there, perhaps!).  the other is to make this blog the best that it can be; i can't wait to see what's to come this year!

unfortunately i was in a rush to finish packing before leaving for my trip and forgot my camera (major oops moment), but here are a few iPhone snaps to recap the holidays.  i really can't believe the hustle and bustle is all over now! what were your favorite parts of the holiday season this year?
