2019 Reflections

With the passing of another year, it's time to look back and reflect on the days gone by.  Taking a moment to revisit the things that filled our days over the course of a year is a great motivator for the upcoming year.

I continue to love the 'less is more' - bordering on minimalism - home decor style and my seasonal changes reflected that.

  1. I admire your less is more, Suzanne. I cut quite a bit from my life but am still nowhere near minimalism. It does feel better, though, and I hope I can keep doing it. Your crafting and recipes have also been very inspiring this past year. Let's see what 2020 does for us, shall we?

    1. Thanks Rita! When I started the process of paring things down, I found it so freeing that it motivated me to keep going. Perhaps you will too! Glad to hear you have enjoyed my shares here on the blog and I look forward to seeing what 2020 brings for you! All the best, Suzanne.
