    I fight the winter blues here in Michigan with seeing all the decorative elements in my house that remind me of the beach! (palm tree plant, aqua blues, framed photos of me and my family at the beach, etc.!)

  9. Jessica G. says:

    Fighting off the winter blues with some pre-spring cleaning. Going through some things and donating them to the needy. Possibly a new coat of paint- these pillows will perfectly match my new color scheme and I must have them…. Plus it will fulfill part of my pillow fetish I have acquired!!

    I fight the winter blues by getting outside in the sun as much as possible, I walk outside everyday, ski and take photos of the changing seasons. The best part of winter is having time to get recharged for the next season. I leave all the drapes open all day to let in what little light there is during the short New England days.
