I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites with you, because chances are that things I'm thinking about and learning may be on your radar this January too.
Kelly at EverKelly has the best post about how we look back at last year and how important it is to look back and recognize our successes. Kelly had an amazing year last year and I remember how hard she worked in 2010 and 2011 to make those things happen. Great inspiration for looking at our own accomplishments with pride and appreciation for our blessings
My dear friend Glenda from GG - Notes On The Journey wrote a beautiful post on making good friends. Life had changed a bit for me and I know that I need to make some changes to allow new and needed friends into my life. So I loved her inspiration, it came at just the right time.
Jane at Borrowed Abode and owner of the pretty shop Janery is focusing 2013 on her own Happiness Project. I am so excited to follow her journey. Happiness is a topic I have often studied and always appreciated in my life. My Dad taught me the joy of being happy and it has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. I know Jane will have lots to teach me this year.
Jenn from A Home In The Making had a great post on making resolutions. I can totally relate to her hope for a more peaceful, relaxing 2013 after a few very busy years. Check out Jen's review of all their projects from 2012 too. The home she and her husband Chris have creatd together, their home in the making, is amazingly beautiful and I love so many of the projects she's done this past year. I especially love their kitchen counters and her update to their front door.
Lastly, Steph from Stephmodo is one of my biggest organization gurus. She always seems to post something on clutter and organization just at those times of year that I am most itching to reorganize everything. I loved her recent post on Clutter & the Modern Family. Very inspiring, especially as I prepare to rent a small storage unit to put my long-term storage in. Definitely thinking I once again need to revisit each box and decide it if the contents is really stuff I need to hang onto.
Hope you enjoy checking these great posts out and get some good ideas and inspiration for this year. I am so happy to know these ladies. I know Kelly and Jane in person but I have enjoyed long distance friendships with all these ladies and so appreciate all they have each taught me and how they have inspired my own actions and success. Sending you warm wishes for a great day!
