happy new year!

i hope your holidays went well.  i took a little break for the holidays around here, and it looks like i’ve been enjoying it since i’ve been a little absent.

i thought my first post for the new year would be a little look back at 2010.  some favorite posts from the armelle blog, and a few things i was able to accomplish.

here goes nothing..

:: my first homemade fruit tart.  i’m drooling right now… ::
