POTD: Shine Bright

Welcome back. Happy 2021! It’s a new year full of fresh possibilities. I’ve previously said that I don’t understand the need to reinvent oneself and one’s goals with the debut of another calendar year and I stand by that. I’m constantly attempting to improve myself throughout the year and don’t currently have a laundry list of 2021 must-do’s. However, I think my motto at the moment is best summed up by a quote from Austin Kleon’s book Steal Like an Artist.

“Don’t throw any of yourself away.”


POTD: Made With Love

When getting into the Christmas spirit my family has religiously conformed to one golden rule. Never bake alone! The preparation of holiday sweets is not meant to be a solo activity and goes from a chore to a holiday treat when you’re surrounded by the people you love. Whether you gathered this year via phone, video or in person, hopefully you found ways to keep the family traditions alive. Everything tastes better with family. 

POTD: The Season of Giving

Christmas is in two days! This is a public service announcement to all the procrastinators out there. No judgement. Life gets busy and things fall off the To Do list but make sure to show your friends and family exactly how much they mean to you this year. Get into the spirit of the season with gift giving this Christmas.

POTD: Jan Brett Christmas

Today is nothing more than a little reminder to savor the season of Christmas. Although festivities may look a little different this year, it’s impossible to keep a smile from your lips when you take a minute to drink in all the happy memories you’ve spent your life collecting to hang on your tree. Happy Friday. May you be filled with the Christmas spirit and experience no shortage eggnog, carols and Christmas cookies. 

POTD: ‘Tis the Season! Again!

It’s time for glittering Christmas trees, twinkling lights, velvet garlands, jazzy carrols, snuggly wool sweaters and everything else that makes Christmas season the happiest time of year. From the moment I packed up my mini tree and stowed it in my closet in January, I’ve been itching to dig it out again.

This week I got my chance! Saturday was all about scary faces and haunted places. But when the evening was over I fell asleep with the echo of sleigh bells ringing in my ears. Just as Santa is hard at work in the North Pole, so am I busy Christmasifying my little apartment.
