This is a new tradition this year! I decided to go along with The January Cure this month, and my favorite thing about it has definitely been the fresh flowers ALL over my apartment. I'll admit, I've been pretty slackery about a number of the other tasks, but I've managed to buy myself flowers every single weekend. I first thought it might be overkill, having so many flowers fill our tiny space. Then, the January doldrums started to kick into high gear, and the flowers really do brighten the space. Even on gray and rainy days, I've got some brightness going on in my dining room, and living, and even windowsills at this point! It's been a gray and dry winter so far. No snow, or even rain storms, just gray (thanks Seattle). I needed these beauties.
I'm in love with this for January. Just the brightness I needed.
