Whisperings from Paradise Found
My week has been full, busy and full of energy, which I am grateful for (even if is at times begrudgingly so). I am not much of a Holiday decorations person. I normally find my normal day-to-day business more than enough for my plate to handle, but my 7-year-old daughter LOVES the holidays. So, we have spent the week tracking down Fred (her Elf on the Shelf), building a house for Fred, putting up the Christmas tree, watching Home Alone and putting out the holiday village. Seeing the pure joy on her face day after day keeps me from pulling my hair out!
I've also started planning for the summer. The beginnings of half day and full day retreats out in the country are underway. I'll keep you posted!
Lastly, some exciting news about our sister business, Shady Grove Fancy Camping: we received a grant from the state to expand this little side hustle. So, we are hoping to add another cute little camper to the fleet before the end of the year.
I hope you have a lovely week and are able to find time to connect with nature and take some deep restoring breaths.

"To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts expressed -- That can make life a garden."

I have a new e-Gift Certificate program that allows you to purchase a gift certificate, choose the background image AND have it delivered on a specific date. It's pretty sweet.
Self-Care Tip: Morning Routine
One of the simplest ways to set the day off on the right foot is a lovely morning routine. A successful morning routine not only contains things you think you "should" do, but also activities you genuinely feel spoiled by. I would suggest taking time one of these next mornings to brainstorm your perfect morning routine. Make a list of what your perfect morning would look like. Then start by adding one or two new activities to your morning routine. Once they become routine, add another or make an adjustment. The great thing about morning routines is they can always change to suit the weather, your mood or the place in life you find yourself that week. Here is what my perfect morning routine would look like today:
Wake up and snuggle in bed with my hubby
Have a cup of coffee while I'm doing the morning's crossword puzzle
Pull an Oracle card and meditate for 5 minutes to set the tone for the day
Take the puppers for a nice 1-3 mile walk
Come home and do an hour of gentle yoga while listening to an inspirational podcast
Have breakfast with my little
This never all happens...but a girl can dream :)
