Hello friends! Or should I say ‘strangers’? It has been an awfully long time, hasn’t it? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year and managed to take a little summer (or winter) break.

Firstly, massive high-fives to all the talented lasses who were kind enough to contribute guest posts while I was gone:

I hope you enjoyed their posts as much as I did!

The Man and I returned mid last week since then I’ve been busy catching up with friends and going through the THOUSANDS of photos we took.

I will be gradually sharing our travel highlights over the next few weeks, but in the meantime here is one of my faves so far (taken in Dresden, Germany). You can bet you’ll also see plenty of posts featuring my (many) overseas shopping finds as I integrate them into our decor.

I had a sneaky extra day off yesterday thanks to the Australia Day long weekend and am back at the Akimbo and Atypical Type A desk today feeling refreshed and relaxed. It has been my longest break from work in – let me think – EVER, so it was absolute bliss. While I have to admit to already daydreaming about our next adventure (somewhere warm next time, please!) I am really excited about the possibilities for the coming year. The project ideas are already swimming around in my head!

Tell me, what’s on your to-do list for 2013?
