Hello and welcome! Firsts are always a little awkward, aren’t they? But I’ve got to start somewhere! I am sitting down with a cup of coffee to write a quick post. I’ve wanted to get this blog going for so long, but felt I needed to have all this material ready to go…well, I’m not waiting on myself anymore – ha ha.
“Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better.” Better about self care, which lately looks like buying myself flowers when I grocery shop – it’s saying yes to the beach without even checking the weather – it’s letting the dishes sit for awhile. But it’s not just saying yes to life’s small pleasures, though; it’s pushing myself to get things done for the payoff, too – something as simple as watering and pruning our container garden, after a lifetime of writing myself off as having a black thumb.
I came across the wise words of Thomas Moore while flipping through pages at a bookstore, “The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.” This has really resonated with me. I relish giving attention to the ceremony of ‘the every day’ while incorporating a mix of quality goods and stuff with a story.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my first post! I look forward to sharing more of my life + style with you. Stay tuned…
