Once after a couple of weeks in Spain, I came home relaxed and calm. I decided to try to identify what parts of the vacation had given me that calm. I decided that I enjoyed walking some. I enjoyed being outside. And I enjoyed spending a little money. I seriously despise shopping, but walking to the store and buying a can of olives or a couple of pieces of fruit didn't stress me.
Trying to implement a few of the things I enjoyed every single day was my next decision. I didn't want to just enjoy two or three weeks a year.
I loved hotels with flowers. I decided that surrounding my home with flowers would be good. I'm pretty sure most people don't look at vacations as a way to improve their homes, but that has worked for me.
I can't put the beach at my home and I really don't want to live on a beach. I'm ok with visiting beaches. But I want calm and flowers at home.
