Ready to keep 2013 SIMPLE-Check.
Doesn’t the new year make you take stock in what you have and perhaps where you see things going? Yesterday, while on a quiet wintry walk, I realized there isn’t anything huge that I hope to do this year. I’m okay with that. I used to think I had to have some giant new endeavour, but what about going back to simplicity?
How will this happen you ask? I think enjoying what I already have, living more in the moment and choosing where to put time and energy is how I’ll start.
Family is first. We’ve lost our way in the craziness of school and outside activities. Making time for the five of us…games, movie night, dinners together…simple things.
Friends are integral…who else would I be doing Yby5 with?? I want to be better at seeing friends…quiet get together’s and good talks.
As for Yby5…don’t think because I want to keep it simple that we won’t be doing some terrific things this year. We have many fantastic ideas that include you as a result of our successful Get Cozy Sale. We’re continuing to find great vintage finds so that your spaces can reflect you and keep things simple and easy for you!
With my SIMPLE motto for 2013 already taking effect, I swapped out some Christmas decorations for simple easy things I already had in my kitchen cupboards. All of these glass vessels had Christmas balls in them for the holidays, but were changed up with a few things from my pantry.
Coffee beans and white beans add a simple fresh look.
Green dried lentils add a punch of green to keep the space light and airy.
All these beans can easily be found at the store and the best thing is that they are inexpensive. I love the color and the aroma of the coffee beans is my favorite!
What changes are you making for 2013?
Big changes or simple?
Either way Happy 2013!
