The good thing about a new year is the fresh start. Whether you are changing up your lifestyle habit, your style, your living arrangement, ANYTHING a new year means closed chapters and beginning of a new one. There's no reason to dwell in the past (ever) but esp. now. This is the reason we all make resolutions (even though most will break them) because we want to start out new.
Freshness always reminds me of flowers (really what's more fresh smelling then beautiful flowers), crisp creme colors, and flowy dresses.
