My life just seems to be getting more hectic every day. I tend to over commit and I am feeling a lot of stress these days. In my efforts to reduce stress in my life, I promised my husband I would find more time to relax and maybe even visit a spa.
But I know that isn’t realistic. I know I won’t take the time to visit a spa because I have no extra time.
Instead, I decided to bring the spa experience of relaxation in our home and I installed a new hansgrohe Raindance PowderRain Showerhead. And boy am I glad I did.
It’s a modern family problem. We all have a set or two of old china. It belonged to a grandma or a mother-in-law. It’s very sentimental but it’s just not modern. It’s boring and it isn’t what we dreamed of when it comes time to setting a table and entertaining. It’s collecting dust and also creating tons of guilt.
So what’s a girl to do?
It’s true. I am totally obsessed with sea glass. And when we bought our house at Ventura Beach we had no idea there was a lot of sea glass on the beach. In fact, I walked the beaches regularly for two years and never noticed it! How pathetic is that?
Spring Cleaning. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. It started a few weeks ago with cleaning out our pantry and refrigerator. It continued last week with emptying out of basement. And this weekend I deep cleaned our kitchen. But here is the interesting part. Before I started the “deep cleaning”, I “spring cleaned my cleaning products” first.
One of the saddest things about the digital age is that we have all forgotten the art of letter writing. Just think about it. When was the last time you sat down to write a letter? With a pen and a piece of paper?
There is something about writing your thoughts out by hand on physical paper, and sealing it in an envelope, that makes the message feel much more personal and enjoyable. I think that the art of writing letters is a lost art that we need to revive together.
