Recently, I made a commitment to treat myself better. To value my personal time. To indulge my senses. To feed my soul with creativity and beauty. Here are a few of the ways I'm making good on that promise...
I'm reading stacks of books (I love this print of the classics!). On my stack right now are: Last Child in the Woods, Half the Sky, Organized Simplicity and My Life in France.
I'm listening to inspiring music like this album from Les Chauds Lapins, the soundtrack from Away We Go and Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong.
I'm swooning over hand-picked bouquets of cosmos, zinnias and jasmine from my own yard. These little bursts of color and perfume are tucked on tables and shelves throughout the house... so lovely!
I'm journaling in two new Moleskines... a Recipe Journal to house only my very favorite, tried and true recipes. And a sketchbook where I'm trying my hand at art journaling.
I'm nourishing myself with lots of fresh, local food and so proud of my little beach town's initiative to eat local.
I'm thinking I really like this self-indulgence thing. And wondering why I waited so long to put myself back on my own to-care-for list. What about you? How are you filling the well?
