Happy New Year, all! This is one of my favorite times of the year. It's a time I enjoy reflecting and starting anew--with fresh perspectives, possibilities, and goals. My husband and I met on January 1st and we are lucky to celebrate our anniversary on January 1st every year too! Major plus, right? We've been married for three years now!

A lot has happened around these parts in the last month. Most exciting of all I was able to leave my main part time job and will be focusing on my business as a photographer this year. Two thousand and eleven was really good to me and I'm looking forward to what this new year will bring. I'm ready to work hard and play hard!

How is everything going on your end? Were the holidays good to you? I've been absent from the blog world and and am ready to dive back in. I've missed you! I can't end this post without saying a big thank you to each and every one of you for taking the time to read, comment on my posts, and give me feedback. I'm thankful for those who have reached out, and for those of you who I've gotten the chance to know outside of our blogs. Thank you for the referrals, the support, the advice...the list goes on. I wouldn't be here without you! I'm looking forward to learning and deepening friendships and relationships this year. Here's to a you & 2012! xo! -J.

* And a big thanks goes out to Jen Manuele for taking our Christmas portraits this year!
