7.1.12

new

New year. New hair. New lens. (thanks for the hot tip, Anna... I hope yours is ok!)

New toddler. Whole new level of chaos.

Other than that - it's same old, same old.

So tell me, what's new with you? I hope 2012 is shaping up nicely :)


P.S - The extremely serious expression isn't me trying to be cool (okay maybe just a little bit). Mostly it's me concentrating on trying to focus! This lens makes everything bluuurrrry... but so delicious!

  2. Oh goodness, toddlerhood. I have all kinds of things to say about that, but at the end of the day, this is one of the sweetest stages.

    Good luck and enjoy!

  29. Oh I love it Claire!
    You really suit short hair, not many people can say that.

    I would love to cut my hair that length but there's no way it would suit my head!

    You lucky lady you!

    Same old round here too, but I am planning to open an etsy store which does excite me!

  30. I hear you about the toddler chaos. Few naps are going on here and you feel like you are chasing and taking things away ALL day! But it really does go so quickly so I'm trying to put it in perspective.
    LOVE the new hair! It really suits you.

  32. With a birthday in march I'm gearing up for this exact lens I'll watch ur photos with joy, interest and envy ;-) till I have one. Gosh your hair do is lovely my fringe is no at shoulder length and my whole head is ready for cut but I refuse to cut my hair when pregnant- I have learnt that hormones can make u do crazy stuff when sitting in the salon in front of a pair of scissors!
