Normally it’s around the New Year when I think to myself, ‘wow, I really need to get it together‘, but in 2015 I’m running a little late. I had my birthday last week and it left me with the overwhelming feeling to get myself organized.
The Boyfriend inquired if there was anything I was going to do differently this year.
My first thought: God I hope so.
My second thought: probably not…
I didn’t realize it was common to analyze and assess your life January 1st, then re-assess around your birthday. That’s a lot of self-reflection. I’m more of a skim the surface type of girl; these waters only run so deep.
But I have several projects coming up that I’ve been working on and can always be more organized (understatement). The Boyfriend is always giving me a hard time about not knowing what day it is, so I think giving me a Day Designer for my birthday was a subtle hit.
And I’ve been working on a side project in floral design and have papers, drawings and general ‘stuff’ everywhere. So I got the ‘Perfect Binder‘ from Sugar Paper- LA and am obsessed. All my ‘stuff’ in one place. It’s a revolutionary concept.
Unfortunately the binder doesn’t help with all the flowers currently taking over our house. The Boyfriend asked what I’m going to do with all the hydrangeas everywhere.
I know what day it is and he knows what hydrangeas are. Who would have thought…
