Well another year coming to a close…and what an interesting year it has been. 2010 started off in a very dramatic way, then there were some highs and then there were some lows…but all in all it was pretty good year – thanks to my sweet family, my dear friends and all of you lovely COCOCOZY readers!

I am excited for 2011. So many new opportunities and new risks I’ll be taking in this year to come. I’ll be sharing them all with you and invite you come along with me on my potentially life changing ride – hopefully you’ll get a bit inspired too.

The only New Year’s resolution I have for 2011 is to be brave. I want to be as brave as I possibly can 2011. Brave in everything I do – in all aspects of life.

Brave about business. Brave about opening up and sharing even more. Brave in trying things I have never done before. Brave with new relationships and love. Brave about pushing myself physically and mentally – challenging myself as much as possible. No fears. Pushing hang ups aside. In 2011, I will be brave!

I wish you a wonderful New Year. I wish you much love, good health, prosperity and even though you may not have asked for it, I wish a bit of brave for you too!
Thank you dear readers for sticking with me in 2010. Can’t wait to continue our ongoing conversation about all things design, decor and a bit of fashion too in 2011!

Happy Friday! Happy New Year!

Much love.


P.S. Also, don’t worry…this brave thing doesn’t mean I’ve lost my sense of humor. You’ll still read about my all my comical moments (which I think are the true fabric of life). I hope in this year I’ll continue to make you laugh quite a bit too. Brave and funny? Hmmmmm…let’s see how that works…LOL!

  4. Well, you have made a good start with your New Year’s Resolution…you are brave just saying you want to be more brave. Bravo to you. I will try and follow suit, you have definitely got me thinking about aspects of my own life where I could step outside my comfort zone. Thanks, and happy new year!

  6. I like your bravery comment .. and I read your Pip-the-horse-scary-moment – and I was slightly amused with your picture-books-no-words post (feel a bit the same these days) – and I just wanted to say that I haven’t visited as much recently due to being busy – but will make 2011 the year to get cozy. I wish you well and look forward to hearing all about your brave moments (-:

  7. Coco, I LOVE your New Years Resolution and am going to “steal with pride”…I couldn’t have said it any better! Love your blog. Jules.

  8. Ha! So funny…I’d been reading blogs about people picking one word to focus on in the new year and last night, I woke up and thought “BRAVE”. I will be brave in the face of job uncertainty, figuring out what to do next,and doing it. I will be brave in my personal life and put myself out there. I will be brave and try new things, eat new foods, learn new stuff.

    Best wishes to you in 2011! And here’s to bravery!

  9. Hey Coco – Was this one for me?!! Thanks for putting this out there to inspire so many. I hope you have a very enriched and fulfilled New Year. Cheers to becoming all we can be!
