What Is Your Intention?

Far be it from me to start rushing through this year already, but it is time to start thinking about Valentine's Day. Don't blame me. Blame the calendar.

Luckily Better Homes and Gardens has such lovely eye candy for us all that it makes thinking about the next holiday already a liiiiitle more bearable.

All of these are simple and yet simply delightful ways to add a little love to your space. Now then, it's never too early to talk about that, is it?

Speaking of a New Year. I made one sweeping "intention" this year. (Last year I banished the word "resolution" in favor of the more optimistic and zen-like word "intention!")

My intention this year is to simply spend even more time doing things that really matter. I'm still defining what all that means to me, but I do know it encompasses giving even more, spending more time engaged in physical activity, spending more time reading, being more aware of food sources, taking more time for myself, spending more time having dates with my husband, spending more time on spiritual things. See how tricky I was? I made one "intention" that can cover so many things. In my head it makes it less overwhelming! Don't wake me from my delusion. I simply want to spend more time doing things that matter.

What is your intention this year?

Yup, can't keep Valentine's from creeping up on us. Those paper votive "sleeves" with the letter cutouts are so clever and pretty!

My intention is to get more serious about my blog and my etsy store than my day job!
