Lately, I have really been missing the evenings I used to spend cooking, eating and drinking wine with my dear friends. These last few years have been rather difficult, career changes, divorces and financial hardships, so entertaining has not been a priority or even realistic. I miss it terribly though, planning a dinner party energizes me. I spend weeks planning the perfect menu, simple but excellent food, usually something from The Barefoot Contessa. I crave the creativity that goes into making the invitations and just the right table scape but most of all I miss the connection I felt with my neighbors and friends as we talked about our children, our loves and our homes.

I am trying really hard to keep my New Year's Resolution of organizing every closet and drawer in my home this year. This weekend I tackled my closet which was not an easy task.
It feels good to be organized and I even found some clothes I forgot about which will be nice to wear again. However....the best thing of all was finally getting my ex's clothes out of my closet. It's been almost two years now so it's time. Every step I take to making my home my own, especially my bedroom, makes me stronger. I feel free and independent, I like that!

It's almost Valentine's Day and for some reason it is so much easier for me to think about what I want..... I guess its time I think about what I am going to give!
I am imagining this necklace with our initials....

One of my New Year's resolutions was to get organized this year. I am the queen of disorganization. However, I plan to change that this year, yes it will take me a whole year. I have been looking at this blog, Brooklynlimestone.com for some inspiration. These junk drawers look great and imagine everything being in its proper place. Imagine being able to actually find stuff when you need it. I so look forward to that day.
By the way....it worked out great when Ryan got hurt and needed a Band aid and Neosporin.
