Living with Intention by Design in 2023
By now we're all familiar with the yearly phenomenon of New Year's resolutions, but apparently this year Google suggested a daunting 55 to choose from! To avoid winding up completely overwhelmed and possibly doomed for failure on January 1st, I'm opting instead for just one resolution: living intentionally. What does that mean? For me it’s been about 12 years in the making - learning why intentional living can be so rewarding has become something like a crash course over these past few! Luckily though creative thinking allows us plenty of breathing room when fitting many different objectives within our umbrella term 'intentional', meaning each morning brings refreshed opportunity to breathe life into your intentions anew.
Succeed At Living with Intention by Design: Create habits.
If you want to set new intentions, one thing that can really help is making sure whether or not it should be a daily habit.

Elevate Your Everyday Experiences
Any year is a great one for focusing on (and improving!) our everyday experiences! We expanded our outdoor living space and made room to have al fresco dinners, hang out around the fire pit in the evenings, AND tend to our little garden. Beyond that - I started an indoor houseplant habit which has become my favorite ritual; even through winter days, there's something calming about caring for some greenery each day. To add to this list of self-care habits & goals, I decided it was finally time to improve my sleep situation by investing in an organic mattress/topper combo with fresh bedding crafted from a deliciously soft cotton...because why not? When you practice Living with Intention by Design in 2023, you are sure to have a fabulous year. Here’s looking forward to seeing what else 2023 brings us all!

Great suggestions, Lisa! I especially love the idea of improving everyday experiences – something as simple as always setting a beautiful table for meals goes a long way toward adding a little luxury to the ordinary. And I’m trying to up my winter indoor houseplant game too :) with mixed success…
