How do you say in French my sister has a yellow pencil?

Sabrina Fairchild : Ma soeur a un crayon jaune.

Linus Larrabee : How do you say my brother has a lovely girl?

Sabrina Fairchild : Mon frère a une gentille petite amie.

Linus Larrabee : And how do you say I wish I were my brother?

After a much needed refresh, relax and reboot, I can say with certainty that I sorely needed that holiday break -- perhaps you did, too? And while we're currently still on the road (in Seattle at the moment for my good friend Christine's wedding), I'm excited to embark on a new decade, hot off the heels of such an eventful and pivotal previous one.

If you've been following since 2009, first of all, bravo! And secondly, you know the past 10 years have brought a lot of amazing changes for me, most of which I've been reflecting a lot on the past week or so of being back home with family. (Nothing allows you to be quite as introspective as being able to sit in your childhood bedroom, am I right?) I'll be sharing a much longer, more in-depth post about this once my brain has recovered from the numerous flights we've been hopping on and off of, but the most resounding takeaway I have at at the moment is that much of what I've bee able to enjoy as my career and lifestyle today is thanks to a blind faith in myself. Of course, it was tested along the way. Countless times. But I can only hope that confidence continues well throughout the 2020s -- and I very much hope the same for you, as well!

As for this third and final installment for our Sabrina series, I hope you'll forgive me for it arriving so late. Sometimes, you just gotta listen to that little voice saying to "slow down" and yours truly pumped the brakes.

I'll be back tomorrow with a little New Year's Eve outfit inspiration for you, but in the meantime, I hope you're still snuggled up with loved ones, savoring these last moments of 2019!
