I took a little bloggy break during the last part of December, so I didn’t have an opportunity to do my Looking Back post, but I’m back now with 2 months in 1!
The last part of December was really quite wonderful. I love the time right before the new year because things slow down and it’s refreshing not to feel like you have to run in place to keep up all the time.
So far 2015 has been treating me well! January was off to a great start and I really feel positive about this year. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I had a bit of a (minor) setback last week when I got an infection in my thumb (hi 7 hours spent at the ER!), but it healed very quickly and all I have is a band aid now. My thumb was only out of commission for about 1 week. So that wasn’t fun, but it could have been worse. (Like I could have been out of commission for more than 1 week.)
I think that’s going to be my motto in 2015: It could be worse. It could always be better, but it could always be worse. It puts a different spin on matters, don’t you think? But enough about talking about how it could be worse. I have high hopes for 2015 and the future in general. I really do.
I saw one of Emily Proud‘s moonrises in the wild.
Two new plants (orchids!) that came home with me one afternoon. I’m not very knowledgeable on the subject of plant-keeping. Do you have any tips for taking care of orchids?
Enjoying my citrus cream tart as an evening treat. (Are those babies photogenic or WHAT?)
I’ve made it a goal to keep a gratitude journal indefinitely. Everyday I write at least one thing I’m grateful for. It helps me focus on the positive rather than the negative.
As wintry as it gets in San Francisco. So pretty.
My ideal Saturday morning. (Or Friday night!)
My submission to #WHPoutofplace. Oddly enough, Aubrey didn’t seem to mind.
How I spent my last days of 2014: Reading a book by the fire with a cup of tea. Perfection.
And how are YOU doing, my dears? Tell me what you’ve been up to. Did your new year start off like you had expected or did it go better? Or worse? Remember, if it went worse than you had expected: It could be worse.
