Self Care: Garden Puttering  

This weekend I puttered around in my garden. I have been committed to using my Dwelling Well journal to keep myself focused on what fills my soul. It’s been helpful to form new little self-care wellness rituals, make lists of positive things I can do, ponder and think about. Hopeful things. That’s what fills me […]

Simple Spring Centerpiece: Get Creative  

I think a little spring decorating would lift our spirits this week, don’t you? I know spring feels different this year. I always keep seasonal decorating so simple, though. I find simplicity always works. A bouquet of grocery store tulips on the table is enough to make me happy. But this week I am not […]

How to Bring Tranquility to Your Home  

As difficult as this pandemic is in so many ways, I’m trying to find more silver linings. I’m grateful for the opportunity to embrace a more mindful, quieter, simpler way of life. There’s still a bit of a chill in the air most mornings, but the sun has been shining, too. That’s one of the […]

Inspired By: Garden Sheds  

One thing I’m excited to do this spring is create a pathway leading from our deck to the garden shed. And hey, since we might be hanging out at home for awhile, maybe we can get started on it while my college-aged son is home. :) I’m picturing a curved pea gravel pathway. Wouldn’t that […]
