2010: A Look Back

People often get philosophical as one year ends and a new one begins. This year, I will leave the sentimentality to others and just cut to the chase.

Here's why 2010 rocked:

I conquered my fear of pants - and Simplicity 2700! And I have 2 pairs of great fitting pants to show for it, with a third on the way.

Pants 1


Pants 2

I wore a bikini...
with my sarong pants
 ...and went on a waterslide.


This is my nephew, Orpheus. Sadly they didn't get a pic of me on the slide!

I traveled to...

Mexico (Tulum)


Venice


Athens
Paris (somehow I didn't blog about this trip)
...as well as Vegas, London, Toronto and several other places.


I made (and devoured)...

Pies....

Cakes... mmmmmmm


Several varieties of Ice Cream
And several batches of Mac n Cheese.


I helped transform my sister's wedding gown into a Christening ensemble for my sweet nephew, Little C...


 I made PJ's for Phineas

They're still his favorite pj's.

I spent time with some of the people who matter most in my life...

Mom and Pop Muse in Paris

Nephews!
The Muses (including the not-pictured Terpischore)!
Not to mention my fellow crafty muses, who seemed to elude the camera this year.

Plus, I ran faster...


 ...And even tried being a Superhero for a day!



 And, finally, on the last day of 2010, I celebrated 6 years of marriage with Phineas...

My best friend, travel buddy, and partner - in both crime and kitchen misadventures.

...reason enough to say that 2010 rocked!
