happy new year!

2009 has been an amazing year. from start to finish i had a year to remember. my biggest accomplishment has been watching vintage connection grow. vc received two very special awards of "best vintage" from philadelphia magazine and philadelphia weekly... wow! who knew my little online store could grow and be recognized in the very city i grew up?

in 2009 my mom and i took 3 beautiful trips. one of those trips was to italy with my grandmother, aunt, uncle, and cousin. in italy my grandmother revisited the very place she grew up and raised her own family. we met relatives from both sides of our grandparent's families and had a very memorable and charming experience together.

oh and then there's ryan. my friend who became so much more and turned out to be one of the most amazing people in my life. i feel so blessed to have him.

in 2009 family and friends started their own families, got promoted in this rough economy, and even bought homes. it really has been a special year! i can only hope that 2010 is just as wonderful.

here's to 2010... you have a lot to live up to, but i can't wait to see what's in store! happy new year to all of YOU! happy 2010!!
