January 2014: Moments

My favorite memories of each month. I often feel like there are moments I know I don't want to forget, but then life happens and they slip by. This is my way of remembering the little moments of each month (and maybe some big moments, too).

1. Going to see Frozen for the 2nd time, and listening to the little boy next to us retell the whole movie to his mom during the end credits. It was the most adorable thing. 

2. Spur of the moment dates at our favorite pho restaurant (2 this month!). 

3. Snowy days spent in PJs.

4. Making our reservations for dinner at the Be Our Guest Restaurant for when we go to DisneyWorld in June. It's finally real. 

5. Purchasing Teddy, and going forward with our plans to make our house a home.

6. Card games and hot cocoa with our neighbors. 

7. Thrift shopping with my parents and hanging out with my dog (who lives with them). 

8. Wearing my new red boots from Modcloth. It's amazing how happy looking down at the bright pop of color on my feet could make me.

Etsy Window Shopping: Craft Space

We live in a 1 bedroom apartment. By "craft space" I really mean "corner of living room I keep my junk in."
But a girl can dream, can't she?

One day I'll have a beautiful craft room, with white walls, lots of light, and perfect organization.


For now, though, I can look to decorate my corner with items that give me a touch of inspiration.

I always need to be reminded of this. Live Simply print from Awake and Away
These birds are perfect. From BeautiSHE.

A wonderful Jane Austen quote from Lit101.

Another gorgeous garland from EverlyLaneDesign

Glass Bottle Vases from Pineknobs and Crickets.

Etsy Window Shopping: Living Room

M and I are trying to spruce up our place this year. We've lived in our little apartment for over a year now, and while it feels comfortable, it doesn't quite feel ours yet. So I've been on the lookout for little things to add to our space to bring out our personalities and make it feel like home.

We already bought "The Theodore" from White Faux Taxidermy. (or Teddy, as we've been calling him.)

I'm loving Kantha Quilts, and I really like this one by CraftAuraHome.

I love the look of this Record Storage Cabinet from OrWaDesigns.

These prints from The Educated Owl make me smile.
