Happy New Year dear ones!! It is hard to believe that 2010 is passed and 2011 has arrived! It was a quiet New Year's Eve here at our home but our hearts were still as festive as this delightful vintage print I found on flickr! But as I come into my last month of pregnancy I find myself a bit more tired and not quite up for the high energy late night that a typical New Year's fete requires :-)

None the less, I am excited about all of the blessings that the New Year has in store! I'm obviously most excited to meet my new baby girl due in just a few short weeks – this will be the highlight of my life much less the year! I can't wait to introduce her to you soon!

There are more fun adventures and delights that I'm looking forward to sharing with you too! Stephanie and I will be sharing lots of details with you in the days and months to come but here's a taste of what's ahead in 2011:

I've been named one of Victoria Magazine's Artists' in Residence for 2011 along with my fabulous go to gals, Pat Roberts, Sherry Spencer & Jen Fariello! We've lovingly and dilgently prepared something special for every issue of the magazine in 2011! The first issue is on newstands now – check it out!

Southern Living magazine will be featuring one of my Jennifer Carroll Designs notecards in their March issue!!! Can't wait!!

Southern Lady is going to be featuring me and my cards in their March/April issue!!

{I heart all 3 of these magazines and can't believe I'm getting to be part of them!}

I've just been picked as a 2011 Best of Weddings winner by readers of the Knot magazine and by the editors too – a double win!! I also have designs that will be featured in their new book The Knot Ultimate Wedding Lookbook hitting your local book shelves soon!

Not to mention the amazing couples whose weddings I am designing this year – I am so excited to be a part of the celebrations of each of these sweet, unique and inspiring couples!!

I'm thrilled and very humbled to say that there is also so much more coming!! Can you believe it?!

God has been blessing me and opening doors that truly only He can open and I'm so excited (and a little scared) to be walking through them but you know me – if God is with me than I will go – even if I'm totally afraid!!

I hope you find the strength to be brave and adventerous in your life in 2011!!! This can be YOUR best year ever!!

Hugs and Happy Monday!
