New Year's Day 2014

Happy New Year!

We spent the first day of 2014 hanging with family. We all slept in a bit after a late night ringing in 2014 and awoke to cut our vasilopita (new year's bread with a coin baked inside for good luck). This year, Peanut was the happy recipient of the coin!

We quickly threw together a New Year's brunch featuring leftovers from the past 10 days myriad of gatherings and get togethers.

The party the night before left us low on ice so I simply scooped up some snow from the back deck and used it to chill the champagne…I had to snap a picture to share with you all because it looked so festive.

A quick family shot before brunch. We have the greatest bunch who was more than happy to appease Belle by sporting the New Year's caps & crowns.

The second vasilopita of the day. YiaYia & Hubby split the coin as it fell in between the two of their pieces.

Hope your new year is off to a fresh and promising start. I'm off to finish up a mega list of to-do like book birthday parties (yikes those are just around the corner), figure out the details of our Spring Break vac-a (can't be here soon enough), and hammer out our 2014 Home Goals. Fingers crossed the baby actually naps this afternoon and the older two hang out at YiaYia & Papou's a little bit longer.

  1. You are one party girl Amelia! I love how you always seem to be surrounded by your loves and it's festive, clean and pretty! Happy New Year! I had never heard of vasilopita - is that a Greek dish? Looks so yummy!
