I am creating a mini-magazine to be posted here once a month. As you can see this cover is from July 2020 . . . where did the summer go?
We have been downsizing our life since March 2020 in order to live simple, I will be sharing articles on how we got this done, how to navigate yourself through this COVID-19 Pandemic, how to declutter your spaces, how to set-up a remote and education stations in the home so you can be ready when school or work is shut down due to outbreaks.
I will have articles about the meeting industry, how we can help with small intimate meetings, where to find venues, how to design social distance in-person meetings . . . I know I’m not the only one Zoomed-Out!!!
If you have suggestions about what you would like to see in this mini-magazine please do not hesitate to reach out to me – I love hearing and sharing ideas.
The holidays can be a joyful time of fun and cheer, but the season can be stressful and exhausting too. Between shopping, entertaining, decorating and celebrating, it can be hard to stay on top of all your to-do lists. Having your home organized ahead of time is a great way to eliminate some of the . . . shall we call it, festive frenzy!
Making a List & Checking it Twice. One of the most important things you can do to keep your holidays organized is to have a list of all the big and little things, such as, cleaning, shopping, meal preps, activities, and decorating. A list not only ensures you don’t forget, but checking each item off the list gives you a feeling of achievement and that you have clarity in the holiday chaos. Next, add all items to your calendar so you don’t overlook anything. Guests arriving? Holiday music concert? Holiday work dinner? Add it to the calendar. Many families find an electronic calendar that can be shared with family members keeps everyone on the same page. An organized holiday is a Peace & Harmony holiday!
Do a Deep Clean & Pre-Decor. Before bringing out all the holiday decorations, do a thorough pre-decor cleaning. It’s so much easier to clean before you pull out the holiday decorations and make getting ready to entertain all that much easier. If your home has already been deep cleaned, it shouldn’t take long to run the vacuum and dust off the furniture before guests arrive. Perform a quick home walk through and jot down all the rooms that need to be cleaned and what needs to be done specifically in each room. This is a great time to enlist the help of your family or to hire a cleaning or concierge service for a one-time cleaning. Got clutter? Now’s a great time to sort through the piles and move out anything preventing you from properly cleaning and organizing. This includes mail piles, counter clutter, kids’ toys, and clothes, decide which items to donate or toss.
Meal Plan & Prep is a Must. Whether you’re hosting big holiday meals or events, doing holiday baking or having guests stay with you during the season, plan out all the meals you’ll be preparing. Don’t forget to count quick breakfasts, snacks, and lunches along with the main holiday meals. Add these meals to your main checklist and note the foods you’ll need to purchase (especially if there are allergies). Print off any recipes you’ll be using to have them at quick reach so you can cross-check the ingredients needed against your shopping list. Double-check your pantry and freezer to see what you already have so you don’t buy double. This is a great time to clean out, clean and organize your fridge and freezer to make room for incoming holiday foods.

I have always been curious about all types of homes, lately driving around on the backroads our beautiful southeastern CT region I have noticed a plethora of new homes . . . coops going up and not just on farms.
I had the opportunity to help out on my family’s farm in Stonington when I was young. I loved spending time with the chickens, but their chicken coop looked nothing like these. Check out the Coops!
My two favorites – Chick-Wil-A & Quaint Cottage Coop
