Thank the good Lord, the great thaw has begun! This has been a long and horrible winter. One that I felt at times would never end. But things are looking up. I can now go outside and not worry about dying from exposure. To be clear, it's not warm, by any measure, but it is above zero, and is reaching above freezing during the day (36 today!) so the snow is melting a little each day. I saw a few patches of grass today!! It has been months and months since I've seen anything other than snow, so it's making me feel especially hopeful.
-Spring will come again.
-I love taking pictures, even more so, since we carry one with us ALWAYS with the advent of the iphone. Here are tips for editing iphone pictures.
-This is SO Minnesota.
-Finally, because we can pack away our turtlenecks, a DIY Statement Necklace. For when we can get really crazy and...expose our necks!!

Hi. I took an unintended break from blogging. To be honest, I feel like there isn't much to write about. It's been miserable and cold. By all reports, the coldest winter in MN in 30 years. I keep thinking it will get better, but it hasn't. I was pretty patient about it, until recently when I decided that I had enough and was ready for it to be over. I realize that it will end eventually. But sometimes when you're in the middle of something, it seems like it's been going on forever. There is a bright spot in this week's forecast. It's supposed to get into the 20s by Wednesday and hopefully the 30s by the weekend!! Praying that those weather people are right!
Due to the extreme cold weather, I've been decluttering quite a bit. This is a great article on the subject. I also suggest keeping a shopping bag in your closet. You'll have a handy place to put things that you come across that you no longer need/want.
A great article on a topic that has been near and dear to my heart lately. From Design Sponge: Practicing Mindfulness at Home.
I've had some very chapped lips and keep meaning to try this DIY lip scrub. All common ingredients that we all have at home.
The next thing on my list of things to make is my own Balaclava or ski mask. (Kidding!! But tempted.)
