Snapshots of the New Year


 It's a New Year's tradition to attend the Vienna Symphony Concert with grand Strauss waltzes, beautiful ballroom dancers, and expertly blended voices singing operatic duets. It doesn't seem like the new year until the faint first strains of the Blue Danube Waltz causes the audience to break out into thunderous applause. (Someday I hope to attend the New Year's Concert done by the Vienna Philharmonic live in Vienna, Austria)

I actually spent the majority of my New Year's weekend, not partying and hosting some sparkling soiree, but rather speaking to middle school students about how to make their life count, living a life of significance in 2012. It was rewarding to say the least, and in my opinion, one of the best ways to kick off the new year! 
My sister and I (really she did the majority of the work) made some pom tassle garlands, and this one is now colorfully hanging above my desk!

Also, I'd like to announce the winner of the loveknots giveaway....

Congratulations, Jocee! I'll email you with all the details, and you'll be receiving your cute scarf soon!
If you haven't already, check out the darling loveknots shop  for a cute pair of earrings, scarf or bow to start off your year in style, all while benefiting a great cause!


Here's to a great start of the New Year!
