The 2012 Bucket List..

This morning I woke up and started reflecting on this year 

and all the things I didn't do... 

I didn't find that one client that would allow me 
to spec shiny black bathroom walls...


Or glossy painted black mill work... 
(beautiful!!) 


and I never really did wear all those great mixed prints 
that I fell in love with during fashion week...


be still my heart..


and I didn't go to that really perfect eco-resort 


in that really exotic location with the really cool interior design..


I never did get to Morocco..


bummer, I really wanted to..


I didn't update my blog as much as I should have 

or write about the 'Pink' trend I was was seeing in furniture and fabrics... 


but I kept seeing it everywhere..
 and I kept meaning to write about it..


All of these things will have to remain on my bucket list for 2012... 

and I can reflect and be grateful for all the things 
I did accomplish in 2011...

I hugged most of the people I love..

I completed the design of a really modern home 
located on a bluff overlooking the ocean


and I did...
 design my first custom made bed 


I traveled to Chicago, Seattle, Santa Fe, San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, 
and many places in California. 

Santa Fe, New Mexico

I spent an amazing week in the Desert 


with about 50,000 really lovely, creative people..


And a few close friends..





saw some amazing art..


danced until the sun came up...


and rode my bike everywhere..


I am in L O V E

Me + the amazing LOVE sculpture 
"LOVE" by Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg
Each letter is 12 foot by 10 foot and made of rusted steel. 


I walked across the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time

added 133 new friends to Facebook (!)

got lost on a Desert road in Mexico looking for a hot springs pool 


Modelo's + GPS a must in Mexico

we found it..

I taught my daughter how to drive

watched both my sister & my brother get married

celebrated a milestone birthday with a lovely group of friends..



watched many Sunsets..

and an amazing sunrise from a beach in Mexico..
December + Sunrise + Cabo Surf Hotel + Coffee = Bliss

I found a new favorite poem..

Ten thousand flowers in springtime
A cool breeze in summer
The moon in autumn
Snow in winter
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things
This is the best season of your life.
-Poet Wu Men —

It's been amazing year

Happy New Year 

my friends.. 

love, light &

 peace 

to you in 2012
