Happy Valentine’s Day

14 Feb

Inspired by all the floral arrangements I’ve been seeing lately,  I decided to try my hand at making one of my own.  These are some lavender and green mums from Trader Joe’s, supplemented by some blooms from the yard.  I found it was easiest to arrange it in my hand first, then trim the stems while they were still held together in the desired position.

Not too bad for a beginner’s attempt, I hope!  Happy Valentine’s day.  Pretend I gave you a real bouquet =)

Happy New Year + 2012 Resolutions

1 Jan

Here’s to 2012! As always, I have big plans for this year. I’m making (only) one resolution to improve my life, and that is to reconnect with old friends as well as make some new friends. Basically, I will enrich my relationships instead of staying home watching reruns of Psych and How I Met Your Mother. I think this will be a fun resolution to keep. What are your resolutions this year?
