weekend+notes | 1.12.24

With yards of ribbon and strings of lights unraveled from crisp boughs of evergreen and delicate ornaments carefully wrapped and packaged up for another season, our homes return to an organized quietness in these days and weeks following a new year.

Family traditions and gatherings fade as we turn to scribbling stacks of aspirations on blank pages and are reminded that taking the time to unfold our intentions in little increments to achieve consistency rather than striving for perfection will lead to reaching those set goals far more effectively.

After the bustling fall and holiday months, returning to a balanced daily and weekly schedule is at the top of my list with a focus on fresh plans for the shop + finding mini moments of inspiration throughout each day. May your objectives make room for mini moments too.

Wishing you a lovely weekend of rest and the happiest new year.
