Happy New Year


Happy New Year!  The last few weeks have been absolutely miserable for me, so I am completely thrilled that it is 1-1-11. I am 100% ready for a new year to begin. In mid December I went to the emergency room with excruciating stomach pains.  I eventually had surgery and a very difficult recovery. Two days before my surgery I went to the Kate Spade website to pick up a little something that would be waiting for me when I got home from the hospital. I picked out this adorable Frosted Felt Magazine Tote. If I had just waited a bit I could have bought it on sale – oh well… It was nice to have a little treat waiting bedside.  I always love starting off a new year with a new handbag and I think this frosted felt will be a nice change from the Louis Vuitton Neverfull I have been using for the last year (and loving by the way).

The one thing that my illness taught me was how to be a better caregiver. It is interesting when the tables turn and you are so dependent on the help of others. I also was reminded at how lucky I am to have the family and friends that I do. A huge thank you to Susan, Rocio, Erin and Liz for sending food for the family; to Srinija and Gene for stopping by; for Fatima and Mac for taking care of my son; and of course to my parents, my husband and my in-laws for all of their help and support too.

Today I am starting to feel good. I am not 100% yet, but today has been a very good day. I am looking forward to a healthy, happy and productive 2011. I want to thank you so much for supporting Sweet Peas & Stilettos. I am looking forward to spending my time making Sweet Peas & Stilettos a fabulous resource for all of us. Best wishes to you for a healthy 2011.
