12 Chapters. 365 Stories.

The first week of January 2019 is gone, and my brain is swimming with ideas and reflecting back on last year. I don’t like making resolutions because failure ensues in 47 days or less. Rather, I chose a word or theme to focus on. Last year was “learn and grow”. A year of figuring out what I liked and didn’t like. Sound easy, but in actuality, it was a bit of trial and error.

Beautiful Distractions No. 11

The weather has turned unseasonably cold in Chicago (a foot of snow last Sunday night), so I’ve been staying warm by the fireplace…perusing Pinterest and flipping through magazines. My two favorite pastimes that don’t happen as often as I’d like. Today I’m sharing some of my Beautiful Distractions, and I’m especially going gaga over my friend Josh Young’s holiday home tour over on Domino. His space is jaw-dropping, and his ornament collection is off the hook.
