    Let 2014 be a year for underthinking, doing what you feel, and improving - your environment, yourself, your relationships - a general movement in all areas where the end goal is to improve.

    Lately during dinner we’ve been playing the “what was your favorite moment from 2013?” game. Turns out a lot of those moments were small things that didn’t feel super significant at the time, or, they were big things that happened as a result of smaller actions. Practicing yoga on a regular basis, the impromptu trip to a friend’s West Virginia farm, eating crabs on the water, special occasion dinners out, and nights at home. 

    This year I want to make sure I record more moments, big and small, as they happen. So to start, here’s a list of the tiniest things that are making me so content these days:

    / sleeping in on weekends with the help of my new christmas gift (there is something about sleep masks that let you sleep for possibly too long, something I haven’t been able to master until now)

    pinning interior inspiration, and already checking “couch” off of my nesting list

    / WNYC’s Here’s the Thing (because Alec Baldwin’s voice may be the most soothing sound in the world. science.)

    / french pressed coffee from my favorite cafe in Charleston

    / drool-y cuddle sessions with the kitten

    / intermittently taking a break from the above with another christmas gift, Donna Tart’s “The Little Friend”

    The photo above is from the “Dear Beds” photo series by Katherine Wolkoff - a dream piece for my walls.

    A big goal for 2014 is to invest in decorating our apartment. I’ve never paid much attention to interior design, as long as things are livable and cozy, I’m good. But lately I’ve been noticing how bare the apartment feels, and have been motivated to start filling in the blanks. Some upgrades I’d like to tackle in 2014:

    • Couch. The comfy, sinkable, plush variety. Preferably with a washable linen or cotton slipcover. 
    • Walls. The empty space on our walls is just getting out of hand, I need to print and frame photos, find a nice big brass wall mirror, hang up hooks for coats, maybe even some floating shelving - and we definitely need to frame the Charleston map I purchased a year ago…
    • Planters. Would like a bushy ficus and a variety of unique succulents to fill up our sunroom. 
    • Clothes Rack. I’ve wanted a clothes rack for a while now, and would love to find (or make something) in 2014. The idea of culling your favorite pieces and shoes sounds so nice, not to mention the ease of which I would likely get dressed every morning. 
    • Bed. Would like new bedding and a new frame. I love our current frame but it’s on it’s last leg for sure. 
    • Painting. Bright white walls with a dark accent room is my dream. (Valspar Subway Tile & Dark Kettle Black, to be specific). 

    While I’m working on the list above, I’ll be pinning my favorite interior images to keep me motivated. Here’s to nesting in 2014.
