Magenta Tie Dye on a Gray Canvas.

Is it Friday yet? There is only one Friday left of the month and of the year. I cannot believe this year is ending. 2012 has been by far the most different, challenging, exciting, difficult year for me. This has been an unique year for sure. In this year I settled in a new big city (a capital nevertheless), a whole new career and job, a brand-new home, very very far away from my family in Michigan, USA. It was also this year that we got the awesome news in late May that we were expecting. So this year has also been beautiful, fun, hopeful and very blessed. The biggest blessing and our hearts' largest joy will become a reality in about a month or so, when I give birth to our Baby Girl. I cannot wait. I cannot wait to hold her, have her in my arms, feed her, burp her, hug her, kiss her, love her. I cannot wait to be a Mom - what a beautiful word!!

Now let me break away from the emotions rolling from this year and move to the outfit of the day. =) This outfit is all about comfort. I have two different shades of Gray on (that sounded like the title of the book "50 Shades of Gray" LOL), but I also added a big pop of color through my Magenta cardigan. I love stripes and it seems like I was attracted to stripes this week, since this is the third outfit in the week where I am all stripey. These stripes are a little unique because they are a Tie-Dye pattern. The earrings & headband bring out the color of the cardigan even more. I always have loved Gray paired with anything in the Purple and/or Pink family. Ohh and I have been having fun adding some Christmasy/Wintery elements to my photos, lately. I hope you like them.

    1. I love the cardigan too. I have the cutest tee exactly like it, too. I am very excited and I do love her name but once she is born and I post photos of her I will introduce her by her name, too. Yesss, I'd like to think both of our families are very loving. =)

    1. Thanks a lot. I'd like to think she will be very loved. She is very much welcomed by us and we are so very looking forward to bring her home, hold her close and have her be a HUGE PART of our lives. I always think Gray looks best with Purples and Pinks. =) Thanks Heather.

    1. It has been an exciting year indeed. Wonderful but hard. The biggest blessing of them all is the baby girl in my tummy. I have spent 2/3rds of this year being pregnant but it has been a great feeling.

      You & Your Sweet Little Family of 3 have A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, TOO!! =)
