"A day spent with you is my favorite day. So today is my favorite day!" ~Winnie The Pooh
Most of you know of my professional background in the practice of mindfulness and happiness so this probably isn't a surprise to you but I do hope that I can spread some happiness and help create some memories around the world with something Dave and I have been planning in anticipation of the current happenings and temporary changes. We feel this is an opportunity not a crisis, or a need to panic but a chance to bond and connect with our 4 teens!
For those of you with teens, like us, you know how engaging them is a bit more challenging than when they were littles. Dave, the kids and I are in the midst of creating a very LONG list of things we can do over the coming 4 weeks. We are pretty excited to check as many of these off our list. Our plan is to VLOG each of what Dave and I are calling "Schradcation" experiences and share our journey and ideas with each of you. Feel free to share freely and follow us on @harmonyhomes14 on IG and FB to catch our vlog documentary.
In the meantime, I'm sharing our own list in hopes that it may spark some ideas for your family! Please excuse our made up family words like "stormbraining" something my daughter coined when she was just 3. Cheers!
Well here it is! All pretty and dressed for it's #Christmas best. If you read Part 1 you know just how excited we were about this #designproject.
I'll say no more. Take a looksie! And please in the spirit of giving please comment below on what your favorite part of the 2019 design is!

Oh Holy....Christmas Decor! I've just achieved my new PR for the number of trees and homes I'm decorating for this Christmas season. While #8 & #9 (our homes in Omaha, NE and Johnston, IA.) will be the last to be adorned, I have spread out my decorating projects so as not to be totes OVER IT before I get our personal homes completed. Last year did me in! Live and learn, right?
I have to admit, this one is always a favorite. For the past 3 years Restoration Harmony have been invited to design a room at the historic Salisbury House and Gardens in Des Moines, IA for their annual Holy and Ivy tour.
