 Happy, happy New Year! Hope you had a lovely evening! We certainly did. We spent it with some friends on the beach.
So... my word for 2013? FORWARD. Do you pick a word that inspires you for the year? This is my 5th year of participating. My "one little word" always picks me somehow. As the end of the year gets closer a word will begin entering my thoughts... and as much as I try to make sense of the word or try to pick a different one, it doesn't work. So Forward it is. Which I am excited about! I have so many fun things planned for this year!
 Now that the Christmas decor is put away and organized I added a few winter decor touches.
 I thought maybe you'd like to see?
 I added a few aqua touches here and there and decorated with my snowman collection and snowflakes.

 Do you decorate for winter? It helps the house from feeling so empty once the Christmas decor is down.
 Notice my paperwhites in the upper right hand corner in the picture above? They get so tall they start falling over! They smell soo good!

 I love the softness of the faux fur pillows and throw this time of year, so does Koko.

I found this fun crock at an antique store this summer, the twig sphere at Marshall's on Monday and the driftwood star at TJ Maxx.
For my mantel I left the window and the pine bough. I added the candle sticks, the urn filled with branches from the yard and snowflakes.
