Always late...

Just like always I'm starting the year off late.  So here's my delayed New Years Post & my official return to blogging seen as I failed over the last two weeks.

Although it didn't feel like it most of the time, 2012 was a pretty great year for me.

We finally became American Citizens & were able to vote in our first election!! 

I enjoyed time in Baltimore, DC, NYC, Atlantic City, New Orleans & Tennessee.  Travelling never gets old for me!!

My first trip to AC couldn't have been more perfect, a walk on the shore, fried oreo's on the boardwalk & some quick gambling of course.  I was a little sad I didn't see Snooki though!

NOLA lead to lots of indulgence.  Hurricanes, Beignets, Jazz & lots of laughs with great friends. It was the perfect place to celebrate a bride to be.

My trip to Baltimore was filled with issues with my love, Adam being the only saving grace.

Over the summer we also worked with a Sales Rep to sell Stella Jewelry.  I couldn't have asked for a better response from local stores & only hope to strengthen the relationships this year. 

In October I left my corporate office job to be a manager at a Beauty store.    The timing was perfect & so far I am much happier in life & finally feeling a little more like my old self.  I am also able to work on my jewelry more & am looking into silver smithing courses so maybe one day I can take the leap to make jewelry my full time job. 

Finally, I rang in the new year with some of my favorite people & loved when my friend Brianna opted to wear a pair of our new earrings for the evening!  I'm loving that it's all about Emerald this year.  What do you think of the new style?

My one regret from the year is not working on our website more, it needs so much work!  I am making this my #1 goal for the year, followed by being healthier, travelling more & reconnecting with old friends.

I hope you all had an amazing New Years & found someone to kiss at midnight!
