Quote of the Day--The Velveteen Rabbit

"Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you."

I watched The Night Listener this weekend and the above quote was in the first and last scene. I used to love this movie/book growing up. When I was little, I had a velveteen rabbit that hung in a red, fluffy stocking until Christmas morning.

Taking Down the Decor

I am taking down the Christmas decorations today and thought I'd snap a few pictures since we will be in a different place next year (hopefully!).

I love my snow angel holding the tree...I got this from my mom, one of the many items in my "holiday trunk" that she put together for my bridal shower. The light-up log candle was also in there.

Here are some of my vintage or vintage inspired items. My best friend got me the vintage inspired snowman this Christmas. Isn't he a doll? We named him Herbert. The itty bitty SnowBaby holding ToTo and wearing ruby slippers was also a part of my "holiday trunk".

This picture is kind of blurry, but we got this ornament on our trip to the Country Cottage B&B this past fall.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone enjoyed a safe New Year's Eve! Here are a few of my main resolutions for the new year:
  1. Take better care of myself (healthier eating, more exercise, & 8 hours a night).
  2. Organize and MAINTAIN all of my "junk".
  3. Create a budget and try to stick to it.
  4. Pass my exam and find a full time job that I love!
  5. Buy a house when this apartment lease is up.
What are some of your resolutions?
