FWandD would like to take a moment to wish all of our readers, family and friends an amazing 2011. You deserve it. This past year was filled with personal and professional challenges for so many of us and our hope is that we can collectively move on from some of the negative moments or memories and use that energy to create the future we've been dreaming about. Maybe you're getting married, having a baby, buying a house or finding a new job...maybe you're starting your own business...maybe you're simply redecorating. Maybe you'd like to get healthier and happier and spend more time with friends and family. Whatever your priorities, we know that 2011 is your time! We can't wait to share it with you. We hope you'll email us your pictures, stories and tips. We'd love to post them for the FWandD community to enjoy.
As for us, our plan is to refocus on health, decrease stress and start building that luxury B&B! It's been a dream for years so, as a loved one once said to us, it's time to "stop talkin' about it and be about it!" We look forward to sharing the before and after photos with you, as well as the recipes, party planning tips and restaurant and wine recommendations we find along the way. Also, thanks to all of you, we're now happy to report that our FaceBook page is available at FaceBook.com/foodwineanddesign for more ways to share FWandD ideas together!
We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the incoming new year in whatever way suits you best; at FWandD we'll be decorating cupcakes, sipping Moet & Chandon, enjoying blue cheese and fig crostini apps and an orrechiette with creamy pink sauce in the country (look out for photos and recipes!).
All the best for you and yours in 2011,
Food Wine and Design
