scarf - homemade / jean jacket - LOFT, thrifted / purse - Athens tourist shop / bracelets - vintage, gifts / dress - UO / tights - Target / boots - DV by Dolce Vita 

It's hard to believe these photos were only taken a month ago, it feels like in no time at all we've gone from perfect fall weather to real winter. I remember being so in love with this outfit that I refused to take off my chunky scarf, even though I was way too hot!

A lot's been going on here over the last few weeks - we're still working away on making our apartment feel like home (it's coming together.... slowly), made restorative visits to family over the holidays, and even hosted a little get-together on New Year's Eve. I've also changed jobs, and am now working on a competition for an office I've admired for years. It's really exciting and I absolutely love the work, but the 50 hour work weeks (which are now creeping up past 60 as our deadline approaches) have certainly put a damper on my plans to get back to blogging regularly. Still, I'm hopeful that once the competition is over in a week or so that I'll be able to settle in to a more reasonable schedule.

While I was off eating Christmas cookies and tamales (we always have Mexican food on Christmas Eve, family tradition) in Virginia, this little blog turned a year old. I know, *technically* if you go through my archives you'll find posts from as far back as April of 2009 (I really don't recommend you bother reading that far back), but it took quite a while for me to decide just what I wanted to do with this blog, and for me the other emily was really born in its current form with this post.

So much has happened in the last year, from the living fantasy of The Trip to reuniting with our big yellow dog, moving to New York and seeing some great friends get married (we built them a huppah!) and have adorable babies, to now feeling newly energized and focused in my professional life - and blogging through it all. Over the next year, I hope my blog keeps evolving (up next - a long-overdue redesign!) but that writing it remains every bit as fun and rewarding as it has been so far. There is simply no non-cheesy way to say it, so here goes: Thank you - for your comments, emails, and just plain reading. Over the last year, the other emily has enabled some amazing new friendships (both in real life and in blog life) and has introduced me to such an incredible community of smart and deeply funny women. I never expected my blog to grow the way that it has, and it means so much to me that you enjoy it. Thank you all so, so much.

Ivy said...

Your blog is different in that you actually put in the time to write longer, more entertaining entries than the typical blogger. And your outfits are pretty awesome (read: really awesome).  I love the design right now, but I'm curious as to how you'll redesign.

origami said...

I'm very much so looking forward to your return to this blog. I was lucky enough to come across your blog around the time of "le grande (re)tour" and your little corner of the internet has been consistently interesting, witty, and thoughtful ever since. Here's to another year of photos and insight!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

congrats on the blog anniversary. I am having a celebration right now as well :) Glad you managed  to find  nice apartment and hope we will get to see some pictures. Keeping my fingers crossed for the competition and btw - I graduated and my thesis worked out well, also thx to you!!!
And I do love that dress and denim combo!

Welcome back to the blog world! We've missed you. 

I love this outfit--I've been looking for a white dress expressly so I can pair it with black tights and boots. Perfect example of winterizing. Hope you're enjoying Brooklyn! 

Simply Bike said...

Happy blog birthday and so happy to see a new post from you! I love the blog, have ever since I came across it, and look forward to many more posts from you. I don't comment often, I usually just 'read and run,' but I had to say something on this post.

And good luck with the design competition!

Hi Emily! Colleen pointed me in your blog's direction and I'm so glad she did! I really love your writing style, and your supercute outfits. I hope that we can reconnect over the blogosphere- check out my blog (which also just turned one!) when you get a chance! It's thriftandstyle.com, basically all about my thrifting finds and how I combine them with my finds for less in mainstream stores. Best of luck with blogging and having a (more than) full time job- I know how difficult it can be :-/ Take care!

I comment whenever I like a article on a website or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
Usually it is triggered by the sincerness displayed in
the article I looked at. And on this post "time flies".

I was actually moved enough to leave a thought :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you
if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like they are coming from brain dead
visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to follow you.
Would you make a list the complete urls of your shared pages like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?
