A Milestone!

Photo from Glogirly

Wow, it is hard to believe that this day has arrived after only 5 months! I am very excited that today is my 100th post on Canoe Design!  I have really enjoyed creating each and every of my 100 posts and hope that you have enjoyed reading them.  My introduction to the blogging world has been one that I am touroughly enjoying and I have met some really wonderful people. I love being part of this community and thank you all for your continued readership, connections and support. 

I am also happy to reveal my blog's new look!  I thought that this would be a good opportunity for a little make-over, and being new to HTML, it has taken a little time to plan, but I hope you all like it!

As this is (at least for me) a pretty big milestone, I thought I would share 10 things about me and my blog with you...just so we can get to know each other a little better.

1. I am a die-hard blackberry fan and cannot every imagine switching to an iphone - I might eat these words in the years to come, however for now I am holding strong. 

2. My blogging buddy is our Italian Greyhound Lina - she is a great support and is always by my side!

3. I only signed up for a twitter account 4 days ago. I know...behind the curve.

4. My favorite drink at Starbucks is a "Half-sweet-skinny-chai-with-a-shot-of-espresso". Also known as a Dirty Chai!

5. I have just finished a series of interviews for a top Manhattan Interior Design company, and am crossing my fingers that things work out.
6. Scary movies and roller coasters terrify me.

7. I have been fortunate enough to travel to some incredible places in the world including the Galapagos Islands, Fiji, Costa Rica, the Maldives, France, Italy, New Zealand and Australia to name a few.

8. My girly guilty pleasure is to get my nails done on a regular basis.

9. I miss the incredible Gastro Pubs in London. We have seen some here in Manhattan, but nothing compared to what there was in the UK.

10. I love everything to do with the water and if I hadn't become a Interior Designer I wanted to be a Marine Biologist!


  1. Congratulations Anna! Your blog has definitely become one of my sources for great design ideas and projects (and love the personal updates as well!)

  2. Congratulations! That's unbelievable that you were able to travel to all those places - New Zealand is on my list for sure

  4. Congratulations Anna!

    Btw I love the new blog layout. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the new job, hopefully it will work out.

    Love. Lysann

  5. I love the new look!!!!

    So many pieces of information, I don't know where to start!

    1) Good luck with the big job potential!!

    2) I have officially become an iPhone geek. Sorry BB.

    3) Doesn't html make you want to pull your hair out? When I first started my blog I used to change things all the time. . . now I am so lazy with it!

    4) 100 posts is awesome! You're moving up there A.


  6. Congrats on the milestone. It is one to celebrate!
