A Sneak Peek of our Spring 2014 Collection!

There's nothing like cozying up on a cold February night under a warm blanket with a good book.  But around this time of year, I'm truly tired of winter. With the torrential snowstorms that keep blanketing the country, I'm sure you are too!

Instead of slumping into our winter woes, here at Rosanna we're dreaming of spring and we wanted to share this sneak peek of our Spring 2014 collection. We hope it'll give you some inspiration to start thinking of ways to refresh your home with spring-inspired decor.

Spring is just 21 days away!  So clear out the wool blankets;  it's time to give your home a boost of sunshine.

Girlfriend Getaways!

Nothing is better than a change of scenery and some quality girl time to melt away the stresses of work and the hustle and bustle of life.  This past weekend I spent time with my daughter and some of my closest girlfriends at our beach house on the Oregon Coast.  We walked on the beach, we cooked great meals, we talked, we laughed, and we made new memories.

Girl time is about pampering, laughter, fun, conversation, dinners and drinks -- it's a complete escape from the daily routine, a time to focus on yourself and your friends.  I always return from girls' weekends with sore cheeks, a fatter stomach and a fuller heart.  Most of all I return grateful for the gift of friendship and for my husband and children.

Even if the time and money doesn't allow a whole weekend away, try just a mini retreat close to home. Here are some ideas:
1) Have a mini spa day--manicures, pedicures and facials
2) Try a new restaurant
3) Go to the theater, a concert or the museum
4) Have a sleep over at one of your friend’s house
5) Plan a day out enjoying nature
6) Do something adventurous (go skiing, hiking, snowboarding)
7) Volunteer to do some charity work together
8) Go to the Farmer’s Market, gather fresh ingredients, and enjoy cooking a great meal together

Ultimately, it really doesn’t matter what activity you choose. It’s all about catching up on the latest happenings in each other’s lives, letting your hair down, and taking a much needed break from life’s obligations.
