Happy 2013!

Well hello there. Happy New Year. 

I realize I'm about a week late but we've been a bit slow getting back into our routine around here.

The holidays were lovely. This was our first Christmas back in the "new" house. It was fun to decorate for the holidays, although I kept it very minimal this year.

We hosted Christmas Dinner. A real test on our new range. What a big difference from our old oven! We've graduated from a 24" teeny tiny temperamental oven to a 36" beauty. 

Here are some pics of what we were up to over the holidays...

I hope you had a lovely break too.

This week I'm working on some new designs for the shop which I hope to re-launch soon. I'm adding some fun products that will compliment my designs and stream-lining my stationery products.

Hubby is home recovering from a minor surgery last week. It was a dental related surgery so there is lots of soup making happening here. I was thinking of sharing these recipes with you as this is my second round at this. Sick or not, soup is a comfort especially on cold winter's nights. 



Thanks so much for your comments!
