|Fresh flowers bring life (literally) to a room|
There are simple things that I like to keep around me to make me feel calm, to inspire my dreams and to make my day better. I thought I would share a few of them with you today as I will be spending the entire day in my dorm room preparing for tomorrow's marketing planning and strategy exam.
Even if they are from the grocery store and I bought them for myself, I always keep a vase of fresh flowers in my room. If I have the opportunity to splurge I also keep a vase full in my bathroom but that is not a healthy environment for them with all the steam and temperature changes. Last night I picked up these white tulips from the organic market. I love how they are so elegant and it reminds me of when I was younger my dad and I would plant bulb after bulb in our back yard of different types of tulips.
|Perfume collection & Grandparent's wedding photo|
This area is special to me because it is where I keep the picture of my grandparents on their wedding day. I remember when my grandfather passed away my grandma asked that when she dies, we burry her in this wedding dress because she wanted her husband to meet her in heaven wearing the dress she wore when they committed their love to each other on earth. This photo is a reminder to me that love exists that transcends time and space.

I hope you are able to identify something around you today that makes you smile and is an investment in your happiness.
