Friday’s Five

Giant paper crepe flowers for our fresh window display at the shop.

While I’m not big on resolutions, I do believe in making the most of the fresh start by focusing on positive intentions and making a list of achievable personal and professional goals for the new year (you can check out my 2017 list here.) The Lennoxes’ mantra for 2018 is, ‘You can make excuses, or you can make moves,’ so I’m going into the new year with some hefty goals for our business and the blog, and working on plans to make ’em happen.

My personal buzzwords for the new year: creativity, motivation, action, growth, grace and balance.

Now on to some highlights from my iPhone this week!

Matching my office in my all-time favorite poncho sweater from Lou & Grey two (or three?) years ago. Florida finally decided to participate in winter, and I’m having a love/hate relationship with the cold, wet weather. 
I’m in love with this arrangement that our wedding coordinator, Shanna, made; and how cute are her gold sneakers?!
My January Book of the Month picks!

    Love the buzzwords and mantra..I haven’t decided on a 2018 word, but 2017 was Grace..if you haven’t read “Grace not Perfection” – you should!

      Thank you for the reminder; I’ll add it to my library list! I’ve heard great things about it.

      And yes, grace in LARGE doses, all day every day.
