We've finallllllllly made it to Hilton Head, after a rather early morning {read--3:45am wakeup!}. It was so wonderful to finally see my parents again! We haven't seen each other since early August, so I'm going to soak up every minute I can with them over the next few days. Two uncles, two aunts, and two cousins--who we haven't seen since the wedding--will also be in attendance, so we have a lot of catching up to do! 

{cv} and I can't wait to kayak the marshes on the island, ride bikes on the beach, and eat some yummy seafood. {Yes, we live in New England, but I grew up on this South Carolina fare on visits to my grandparents, so I'm partial!} 

Apologies that you won't be hearing much from me until January 2nd...I had grand plans of doing a recap of 2010, but maybe I'll do that early in the new year.  Friday's Fancies will also recommence the first week of January ;)

So, lovelies...enjoy the last few days of 2010 and bring in 2011 with a bang {but safely, of course!}. I can't wait to hear about your new year's resolutions--and share mine with you--when I get back to reality. I promise to take lots of pictures. You all better do the same!

I have a great feeling about 2011. If the last two months of 2010 have been any indication, my fantastic, loving followers will surely bring me lots of smiles and encouragement in the next year. For that, I am beyond grateful.

Much love, {av} 

P.S. Many thanks to Ashley from Run With Me for 
some great new ideas for our visit! :)

  10. Yay, I'm so glad you get to spend sometime out of the snow and with your family! Kayaking sounds so good right now; I feel like haven't even moved since the blizzard here in NY. Enjoy your New Year's Eve, and thank you for being one of the kindest people I've met via my blog. :)
