Home…

our happy place.  Traditions, warmth and welcome.

Home is a feeling. It radiates fond memories of countless holidays, birthdays, milestone celebrations and after school projects.  It’s also simply seeing the beauty in the everyday.  It’s where your stories are written, the place where you belong.

Each season brings with it celebrations, holidays, weather – all playing a vital role as to how we live and play.  So many can relate to the feeling of cold weather coming upon us in Autumn.  Long cooked winter meals, football and a crackling hearth.  Shortened days, the rustle of leaves, the scent of candles burning inside a jack-o-lantern.  The sounds, smells and tastes that all come together to create a feeling.  This is your home, your good life.

I would like to share with you my ways to make each day a celebration, make the ordinary extraordinary, and how to be organized and efficient and enjoy living for the moment.

I extend my invitation to you to come inside and experience home…Welcome!


Month to Month Inspiration

February 2021

I think it’s unanimous to say that January flew by. And here we are into the second month of the year. I know many are wishing for spring, but were I live that is still several months away. At this point in the season, though, I love to bring color back into the house and fortunately that can be done with fresh flowers. This year I’m trying my hand at forcing bulbs, something I’ve never done before. We shall see how they turn out, but for now, it’s just satisfying to see something grow. What’s in store for this month? For me, more organizing and taking stock of what is important in my life. On my Instagram account, I’ve started weekly series that I call #selfcaresunday, where I’ll share all things that I regard as self care. All too often I think we forget to put ourselves first.  It’s so important to be mentally and physically rested before we can take care of others in our lives.  Let this month be a month for rest and selfcare. Winter may be here for awhile in the northeast, but before you know it, our thoughts will be turning in earnest to spring. Happy February friends!
