master bath before1

After months and months of planning, the master bathroom renovation has begun!  It started on Monday and currently the bathroom is a big mess. They’ve torn out everything and slowly, what I imagined is coming to life.  It’s exciting and I can’t wait until it’s finished. Already I’ve been daydreaming about my own vanity.  It’s not been a hardship to share but it’s going to be amazing when we both have our own space. We’re on track to finish everything at the end of next week except the new counter tops.  Updates forthcoming!

five lessons from my mom

mom and me

“Five Lessons from My Mom” is something I wrote a couple of years ago and it’s one of my favorite posts.  Many of my life decisions have revolved around these lessons and it’s worth revisiting. Happy Mother’s Day!

My Mom has taught me a lot about life.  Throughout my adolescence and most of my 20’s, I rolled my eyes about these lessons.  As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized these are the tenents of my life and I’m grateful.  So Mom..despite all the years I dismissed them, these are my favorite lessons.  Happy Mother’s Day!

1. Work hard and you will achieve. My Mom always worked hard. After starting her career as a teacher, she worked in our restaurants and then for a publisher selling educational textbooks.  She won many sales awards, she worked insessantly and helped fund a wonderful retirement.

2. Wear lipstick.  Image is important.  For years, I thought this was the silliest, most superficial advice.  Then I realized she’s right.  People judge you as soon as they meet you.  If you’re pulled together, the impression is more favorable.  It’s sales 101.

3. Laughter is the best medicine. Whenever I’m having a terrible day, I try to find humor in something.  Laughing always makes me feel better.

4. Be curious.  My Mom is curious and she taught me to be the same. It’s why I love to read and travel.

5. Good grammer is important.  My Mom is a former English teacher.  While I used to find her corrections annoying, now I’m grateful. Poorly written sentences make me cringe.
