there's a lovely post over on decor8 filled with great ideas for refreshing your home for the new year.
while the new year is a lovely time to think about all sorts of new projects, i'm also feeling the need to just take some time to relax after a busy first week back at work and school, and before a few more busy weeks to come in january.
for me, spending some peaceful time at home is the best way for me to catch my breath, and i can really feel how even a few small changes in my apartment can make me more calm, productive, and happy.
there's also a beautiful post on design sponge all about poppies, which are one of my favorite flowers.
i hope you are having a lovely weekend!
