Looking Back on 2012

Thank you for an amazing and wonderful year.  I am truly grateful for all of your friendship, love, and support!  It’s been a pleasure to meet new people in the blogosphere and in person.  Most importantly, I enjoy taking time to reflect upon the blessings of the past year…

  • SOS started a new series, “From Grandma with Love“, and revived an old one, “Try a Trend“!  Maybe, I should bring back “Quick Tip Tuesday“!
  • The blog got a brand new look!  Thanks Jo and Katrina!
  • I attended my first LuckyFABB Blogger Conference in New York and met loads of FAB.U.LOUS people.
  • Mr. S started being my paparazzi photographer.  And Hilary and I are now blogger photo buddies!  You can tell a world of difference compared to my tripod and remote pictures!
  • My photoshop skills improved TREMENDOUSLY after a BlogShop stop in Dallas.
  • I tried my hand at video for Chevy {also my own on youtube here}! Eeeepp!  *hiding under a blanket* Need to develop some skills before any more videos!
  • Mr. S and I traveled to London and Paris and saw beautiful places and met wonderful people.  We have memories for a lifetime!
And meanwhile, I’m so looking forward to 2013!!  Top thing on the list… BABY. {We are in the process of adoption!} And I have some fun things coming up on the blog! 
As usual, I have the same things on my New Year’s Resolutions list! Some things never change. Yes, I am a work in progress!
What are your New Year’s resolutions?

  1. You have had a great year, and looked immensely stylish through it! Have really enjoyed reading your blog :)

    I really hope that the start of 2013 has everything you wish for in it and the adoption process goes really quickly and smoothly for you.

    Have a happy new year, and all the best for 2013!

    1. Thanks Mica!! And thank you for being such a great blog friend! Hope you and the family {hubby and Cooper} had a wonderful New Year!

  2. Isn’t it crazy how fast 2012 has gone by?
    You are such a fashionista! Love your style and your fun blog! I’m happy to have found you. I wish you all the happiness in the new year!!
    God bless!

  3. Love all the pictures! It sounds like you’ve had a pretty wonderful 2012 :) I hope 2013 is just as amazing! My New Years resolutions generally include exercising (it’s gone from exercising more to just.. exercising lol) and taking better care of my health, spend more quality time with the husband, and move into a bigger home.

  4. What a lovely recap. I must see the pale yellow Ostrich trimmed dress…..I missed that post somehow!
    Happy New Year, Sam!

  5. Lovely recap, Sam. It’s so cool to see how your style, blog and skills have evolved! I am so happy we became connected via the blogosphere — I hope to meet you in real life in 2013!!! xoxo

    As for new year’s resolutions: Remain committed to my 3x a week yoga practice (it’s great for inner beauty and reflection!); get back into bimonthly manicures (I’ve fallen victim to ragged cuticles!); and continue to build out my professional wardrobe without giving in to boring business basics (I’m the youngest in my department, but nobody needs to see that!)

    1. Kimberly – it would be absolutely FANTASTIC if we could meet in person! Definitely will add that to my 2013 list of things-to-do!!

      My cuticles are horrid {on the hands and my feet}! And it’s okay to get basics to start the foundation for your not-so-boring business wardrobe! :)

  6. Happy New Year! haha love “get organized” as a lifelong goal :p Perhaps doing a weekly organization of your life so you don’t fall too behind and feel overwhelmed.

    Can’t wait to see the beautiful baby you adopt :)
