ok i will reflect...

as i peruse the blogroll this a.m i am seeing some really heartfelt sentiments from all you lovely bloggers out there..and it made me think..maybe i need to reflect?..except my memory is pretty poor..so to get a jolt of memory i headed to my iphoto library so i can see visually what happened in 2010...
new years last year was a brett dennan concert, followed by frigid New York for a trade show, celebrated my birthday with amazing girlfriends in Napa
rikshaw's BIG photoshoot for all the children and womens clothing! i was so happy with the results!
early spring was meeting many new babies that my cute friends had, heading to los angeles to celebrate easter with a dear friend, breaking in "bessie" my bike, and of course playing with jumby
once spring/summer really hit it was nothing but shipment after shipment ! and a ton of trunk shows..work was crAzy busy! ohh and my obsession with kombucha reached a new high when they decided to pull it from the shelves..
the summer i took a few trips, one down to southern california and met some fellow bloggers, went to south carolina, and lets not forget the the jack show...lottsa work but got some great beach time
fall marked yet another photoshoot, (lots of the images are getting on the website now!), went to new york and got to attnd the jcrew spring preview show, family came out for thanksgiving, and I had a white christmas in virginia!
whew..we are tired..

2010 it was a year of alot of hard work, busy days, new friendships, new places visited...all and all a great year and looking forward to new beginnings in 2011 ! i want to thank you for reading this blog...it has turned out to mean so much to my everyday.... i have loved hearing from you and actually getting to meet so many of you.
onward and upward to a wonderful 2011!!

Great re-cap Catherine! I am so glad I got to meet you this year and see your beautiful line up close and personal in San Diego. I wish you all the best in 2011! And by the way, I tried Kombucha because of you this year, thanks!!!

I love the re-cap almost as much as the day to day reading! I adore your blog, it puts a smile on my face everyday. I am across the country in NJ (under 3 feet of snow right now!) feeling a little Rickshaw sunshine. Best of luck for continued success, health, happiness and peace.

It looks like you had a wonderful year. I also found myself at the Jack Johnson show this Summer. But like I said in my last comment, I'm not surprised, it seems like we love all of the same things!
I adore that last photo, it makes me want to curl up in some of your beautiful sheets.

so excited to continue reading in 2011!!

on another note, what flavor on Kombucha do you like? And what sorts of benefits do you see from it? When I first heard about it it was right around when it got pulled from the shelves, but now that it's back I am just dying to get hooked like everyone else:)
