I know I've been hiding out for quite sometime now...I must apologize for that. I believe I struggle with seasonal depression, and when the sunshine goes into hiding so do I!
I accomplished very little in January, and was feeling very uninspired. But I must say I feel like that has all changed this last week!
The sun finally decided to show it's lovely face,
and with it my energy and inspiration returned!
Since I don't have a lot to show for myself in January I thought I would show my highlights through Instagram...
I hosted a mini New Year's Party for my sisters, and two close girlfriends!
We had a blast!
Went post-Christmas shopping with my sis & dear friend Madelyn.
We had quite the entertaining shopping experience!
Then it was time to say goodbye to Mattie...it made me very sad.
That is when my seasonal depression set in. :(
To try to distract myself I put my focus on redecorating my breakfast room.
I found this cute table and chair set for $300 on Craigslist!
I then repainted these panels I found at a garage sale for $5!
I crocheted a new cream & gold scarf...
...while catching up on all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey. (LOVED!)
Then my husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses!
Cuddled with my Chihuahua...
Finally the sun came out the last week in January...
and so did my flowers!
You can tell Zorro enjoyed the sunshine just as much as I did!
I attempted to try the center part on my hair for a sleek new look...
and found a beautiful sea foam green top at Old Navy!
(I know you can't see much of it in this pic.)
So all in all I guess January wasn't that bad...I was just going through my winter blues!
Now I am already preparing my yard for Spring!
I can't wait!
So how was you your month?
