An Inviting Home

Home Sweet Home Blog Series. Post #4

The last post for the blog series is all about having an inviting home.  Having a peaceful home, a healthy home, and a cozy home all help you prepare to open your home to others.  The holiday season is when most people take more time to be thankful for what they have.  What better way to share your blessings with others than to invite them to share a meal around your table and time of fellowship in your home.

A Cozy Home

Home Sweet Home Blog Series.  Post #3

The third post of the Home Sweet Home Blog Series is all about making  your home feel cozy.  It is perfect timing considering today is the first day of fall!  I am so excited about this season and to talk about this topic.

Pure, Safe, and Beneficial

In April of this year, I decided to start an Arbonne business.  Before you roll your eyes about another direct sales company, hear me out.  I had been using Arbonne products for months before I decided to join as a consultant.  I had ZERO interest in doing the business side of this.  I loved the products and just wanted to continue using them as a client.  As I continued to use the products, I just fell in love with them even more.  I had used over 30 products before I even became a consultant, so I knew they were legit.  I was seeing AMAZING results with the products and was already sharing with all of my friends, so I figured I might as well get paid for it.  You never  know until you try something, so I figured if it didn’t work out then oh well but at least I tried.

Being Busy Does Not Equal a Full Life

In today’s world, it seems like everyone strives to be busy, to keep a full calendar, and to over commit themselves.  Everyone is overwhelmed, stressed, and missing out on what really matters.  This is not how you live a full life.  Having a full life does not mean you are constantly busy.  Having a full life means that you make time for things that matter most to you, and get rid of everything that is not essential.

Southern Hospitality

The South is known for its hospitality and friendly people.  Everybody waves when they pass you in the road whether they know you or not.  Porches are necessities, and we always welcome friends and neighbors to stop by.

We love a good potluck or pig pickin, because a southern woman is always looking for an opportunity to show off her cooking skills.  One thing that I have learned over the years is that hospitality doesn’t have to be a big showy deal.  It is nice every now and then to have a big barbecue and invite the whole neighborhood, but on a everyday basis hospitality isn’t that big of an ordeal.
