Happy New Year, everyone! 

(And I have to wish a very Happy Blog Birthday to The Court Jeweller, which officially turns six years old today!)

The last year has been such an exciting one, both in the royal world and for me personally. We witnessed imperial enthronements and royal weddings in 2019 -- and I celebrated a wedding of my very own! I'm so thankful for all your kind words and support in the past year.

As we move into a new year and a new decade, we'll certainly have lots of sparkle to look forward to! We've already got a few things on the docket, including two Dutch state visits, Queen Margrethe II's 80th birthday, a wedding in Britain, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's 10th wedding anniversary, and a new baby in Luxembourg!

So here's a toast to the new year -- may we all have happy, healthy, prosperous, and sparkling months ahead. (As always, we'll be here bright and early tomorrow with our first major glittering event of 2020 -- New Year's jewels in Denmark!) What are you looking forward to this year?
