Well it’s the end of January and we can take a step back and see how those New Year’s resolutions are holding up. If you’re like us, your schedule has been nutty and maybe you need a little motivation to take those goals into full gear. And if you resolved that 2014 would be a year of fresh starts, this is the place for you!

Whether you’re determined to be more organized, you’ve vowed to spend more quality time with family or you’ve pledged to take a step back and really appreciate the little things in life; your home is a great place to start. Be it your office, bedroom, or living room, taking the time to cut the clutter and freshen up the scenery is a visual declaration that this year is a new year!

Picture Perfect :: With social media, many of us forget to take the time to display those beautiful moments for the world to see. Or perhaps you’re hoarding a few too many boxes of family photos from years past. Check out these fantastic ways to reinvent your treasured memories and perhaps you’ll get inspired to get out there and make some new ones!

Together Time :: With gadgets galore, sometimes it can be tough to take the time to truly connect with family and friends. Try out an hour a day where the living room is a device free zone. And for extra encouragement, get a jump start on spring cleaning and spruce it up with some comfy pillows, a throw or perhaps a new set of curtains. You’ll be amazed by how a little color and texture can transform a space.

Fresh Air:  Whether it’s 70 or 17 outside, why not treat yourself to some fresh flowers, herbs or a potted indoor plant? With online options galore, it really is a snap to bring a fresh breath of outside, in. And what better way to make use of old pots, baskets or vessels that are lying around just waiting to be reinvented?
