Sunday Still Lifes...beach cottage

I've been spending more time at our "beach cottage" lately because I am taking creative classes in the Bay Area (more to come on that later.)

I've neglected our funky little rental because
we've been so focused on The Farmhouse this past year. So, I spent a little time this weekend enjoying all of my collections
around the house.

I hope you enjoy too...

Some of my bottle collection.

Part of our heart rock collection. 

The weight of a zen moment.

One of my favorite ironstone pitchers.

Sand dollars, antlers & tarnished silver...

Sunday Still Lifes - Baja Doors

I was just reminiscing with my husband about our trip
to Baja back in 2004. We drove down in an an
old Ford Diesel truck outfitted with a camper and tons of gear.
Traveling to the tip of Baja, up the Sea of Cortez
and beyond. We had an amazing trip and hope to make it back some time in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, here are some shots I took of the doors
around Todos Santos...Enjoy!

Word of the Year - 2013

{ b a l a n c e }

Before I found out about the the
"Word of the Year"

I decided to focus on two words this year to help me focus.

They are
balance & consistency

I need to find a nice balance between work & play

I want to be consistent with my exercise plan

I look forward to balancing my protein intake with 
my love of carbs

I'm trying to drink more water & need to be much more consistent

I want to be more consistent with my blogging

I need to work on balancing my time between our 
"beach cottage" & The Farmhouse

To choose one word to inspire me throughout the year, I'll choose 

{ b a l a n c e }

because I can be completely unbalanced yet super consistent,
but balance should bring more consistency.

What is your word for the year?

Happy 2013!

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!
The time of year to reflect on the past and
look ahead to the future.
A time for a fresh start or
to realign your values.

I look forward to sharing new inspirations in the New Year...
