Cheers to 2013!

On Christmas Eve, Jill Amery, founder of UrbanMommies.com, hosted Olivia and me for a Christmas lunch when I delivered her photo books from my photo shoot with her boys.

Jill is an incredible hostess and even serves the children’s drinks in Nova Scotia crystal. It definitely was Olivia’s first taste of fine crystal. Jill’s boys, Ford and Hudson are well trained though — Jill uses her fine crystal every day!


Did you write a New Year’s post about your Resolutions, Goals or “Words” to focus on in 2013?

What is Your Weekly Photo?

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I usually just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a thumbnail linky:

Or a basic linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Jill is a brave woman! I don’t think I’d trust myself using crystal everyday, never mind my kids!

You really make it seem so easy together with
your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really one thing
that I think I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me.
I am having a look ahead in your subsequent post,
I will try to get the cling of it!
