Growth in January

My friend Elizabeth set forth the idea to get through January by blogging to a theme. Here is her original post about it. I love this idea. January may not be all gloom and doom for this snow lover, but with the joys and highs of Christmas season past, and Valentine's Day a little far off yet, I do lose focus. I start longing for my garden, and I feel limited as far as activities go. I start fielding questions from the kids about when spring comes, and I start looking to sidewalk to see if the ice is melted enough for a fresh air walk.

I think my theme (for this week, I may switch up a bit) is growth.
First, in order to keep my thumb green in the winter I have a quite a few plants in my house. While on my last trip to California (spring) I picked up a few unique succuclents that are adjusting to the indoors nicely-better than previous years. The bright white snowlight makes them glow inside the windows.
The pink edges on this one look like a sunset.
My mom sent me this one. It's called 'Chocolate Soldier.'
I've had this one for a few years now.
Next up, Hunter. This big boy finally figured out how to turn the bathroom sink on by himself (it is a tight knob). He surprised me!
What's beautiful in your life this January?
