A Quarantined Life…Rose Castle Cottage

Take time to make your soul happy💕 Hello, sweet friends… Slowing down and getting more enjoyment out of everyday life starts where the heart is – at home. I am BLESSED to be in my home environment.

I had another post planned…making mention of it on my last blog post however so much has changed since then… That being said today I’d like to share how I’m adjusting these days at home and a few things that help me with maintaining a healthy mind & body… Something which is more important than ever. let’s face it…we are going to be spending quite a bit of time here. My most important suggestion…(drum roll) *1. Get dressed! (Every Day) I remember when I was still teaching and it felt (was) like a luxury to be able to stay home and lounge around in my pj’s. It was great back then…however now that I’m required to stay home… what once felt like a luxury might not be such … Continue reading
