I love Apartment Therapy's suggestion that Christmas gifts be 'wrapped' in reusable shopping bags. Great! I've recently taken an inventory of my 'stuff' and my 'waste' and have been taking bolder steps to limit both in an attempt to live simply, walk lightly and lesson my ecological footprint. And you know what? It's fun and contagious! Part of the fun has been keeping rolled up reusable shopping bags in my purse. I had no idea it would feel so good to pull them out at the grocery store and use them instead of the disposable, plastic, oil-consuming, landfill-filling ones the store gives out. (Insert shopper peer pressure - it can also make the person behind you feel guilty and thus inspire them to purchase one of the reusable ones available at the till!)

My blogging presence has been non-existent lately, so I'm doing a quick check-in. My life has been so full of wonderful people and events lately that blogging and computers have been the last thing on my mind (this is a very good thing), so I may be missing in action for awhile, but I'll be back again when the inspiration and the free time hits.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a sneak peak of my new apartment.
Merry Christmas everyone! Happy, lovely, festive December!
