new year's on the pier

January 2, 2012
the pier

We rang in the New Year in Lake County, just at the edge of Nice and right before Lucerne. This Nice didn't much resemble its better-known namesake, but it was gorgeous.

We went out to take photos of my New Year's resolution for The Violet and all of a sudden our photos got really mushy. Sorry, guys. These kinds of photos are pretty rare for us but there was just something about the day and the light... and the boy, of course.

I couldn't help but get a little carried away here.

And here and here and here.

It was a nice way to begin 2012.

  4. very cute! i spent my new years in the bathroom throwing up. Luckily, I don't have pictures to show you. Worst week to get to stomach flu! I'm finally feeling a little better and I have work tomorrow! rats.
