If you find yourself pulled in many directions and only few minutes to pull yourself together, I absolutely relate. I have many interests and being a mom, a wife, daughter and a sister I like to be involved in my families affairs, be helpful, and lend a hand when I am asked to help.
As you can tell from this blog I am also a gardener, love to bake and cook, and always look for ways to make my home beautiful and comfortable. Stepping out of my house with mud on my knees or flour or pasta sauce on my shirt is absolutely real for me. It takes time to change to a clean shirt and jeans, but I often find myself with surprised texts and phone calls that pull me out of my house with few minutes left to put myself together.
Learning from experience, knowing last minute meetings and errands to run can happen without any notice I have come up with a collection of clothes and accessories that help me in minutes to look presentable without missing a beat. I use the coat closet next to the garage door to store : cardigans, jackets, a pair of boats scarves, and several pieces of jewelry. In few minutes I create a stylish look that not only covers my casual t-shirt and jeans but it also helps me leave the house with less stress and more confidence on how I arrive to my next meeting. Following my goal in life 🤣 to keep everything simple and stress free.👍😌

Staying home hasn’t been that stressful, what is stressful for me is keeping my family happy, healthy, focus on school work, and following a workout schedule.
Since quarantine started, we have also let go of our many daily routines. Getting up at a certain time, shaving, wearing makeup, putting on clothes, socks, grabbing our to go coffee mug.
To stay happy surrounded by our children and whoever we had to be quarantine with is more work than we are used to.
We are realizing now that Cleaning, cooking, entertaining, educating, is more work and planning than we have ever done in the past and is simply exhausting, but also very necessary.
For me making a large bowl of pasta, baking double chocolate brownies, gardening, going on long walks, watching a movie, wearing sweatpants all day long is what I need to do to stay, stress free, hopeful and happy surrounded with family. What I see for now as simply necessary.
