Tropical Tuesdays and Winters Natural Beauty

Ok ... so this winter is starting to make me a little stir crazy, I am trying my best to put on a happy face but let's face it it is down right miserable. Mother nature has come down on us with a vengence. So what do you do when the weather keeps you shut in??? What I have found that has been helping me this winter is to try and always have something to look forward to, whether it's making a art project surfing the web in search of tropical places or spending time with friends making dinner and enjoying each others company. My friend Heather and I have been hanging out on tuesday nights which by the way we have now dubbed "Tropical Tuesdays" and what we have decided to do is make a dinner inspired by the islands, put on some island tunes, sit in the hot tub and imagine ourselves in Key West in tank tops and flip flops of course, sipping on cocktails! We most recently even made tropical inspired wine charms, too fun! So for now try to find inspiration and motivation to get you through this harsh time. Spring is surely on the way RIGHT??? So for now I will keep surfing the web and browsing Coastal Living magazine while sipping wine and dreaming of warmer beachier days! can't wait to see my first daffodil rear it's sleepy little head! Cheers to Summer ~
