January and Organizing

I don't know about you, but every January I feel the need to get my house decluttered, cleaned and organized.  And every January, I struggle with how to do that correctly and really accomplish something.

Greenery: Pantone’s Color of the Year

Happy New Year to all of you!  Welcome to 2017! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful New Year's Eve. We went out for a nice Italian dinner and ended up staying in and watching football, since we're both feeling a bit under the weather with cold symptoms.  I'm sure this week will bring improvements and I'm looking forward to a fresh new year ahead. I really don't put a lot of stock in the color of … [Read more...]
