Happy New Year!

Well hello there, Twenty Twelve.

I hope you are enjoying the first day of the new year. We had some friends over last night for food, drinks and good cheer. Today we have fridge full of leftovers and are happily hangover-free. The Christmas decorations are staring me in the face, ready to retire to the basement for another year. But first I think margaritas and a movie are in order this afternoon.

And now that 2011 is in the history books, I wanted to share with you guys a video Taylor put together of our adventures in 2011. We had a really terrific year—bachelor/bachelorette parties, an amazing wedding, our Honeymoon to California,  a friend’s 40th in Key West, high school friends’ summer reunion in Virginia. Taylor’s job took him to Cannes, France and Germany. And we spent the holidays in St. Louis and Clearwater with our families.

O-ELEVEN VIDEO  (I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video… Click the link or the image and it will take you to YouTube in another window.)

It was also a great year for The Nesting Game. This blog led me to my first design clients and the beginnings of many blog friendships. Thank you for your comments, your pins, and your overall good vibes. Basically, if you’re reading this, thank you for being a part of my favorite year to date!

2012, bring it.

PS. You can also watch our 2010 video and our 2009 video.

    How great to watch the videos again! 2011 was a good year. iPhoto forced me to stop at 100 pages for the yearly album! Had tons of cute and fun pictures of the family!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    You can embed YouTube videos by clicking on the Share button below the video, then embed, then copying the resulting HTML code and pasting this via the HTML tab in the WordPress editor. See multiple examples on my music blog from yesterday!

      I tried this and the code showed up when I previewed my post instead of the video. Wonder if it’s because I’m self-hosted? Maybe I was doing something wrong…

    Holy crap! I just lmfao and cried at the same time drinking Pinot ant watching the new and old videos! So nice to have a trip down memory lane even though it was only 3 years ago! It’s scary how the kids have grown in such a short time! Happy New Year!
