I am THRILLED to be back in my office/studio. I’m surrounded by my library of material samples. I’m sitting at the work table that was made with love by my father. There is joyful artwork all around me. This is my happy place.
After sheltering in place for 12 weeks it’s hard not to think of all the things I grew to cherish while working from home along with my husband:
- Laughter— I was guaranteed to laugh a lot more with my husband and kitties lingering about.
- Connection— James and I shared small (but meaningful) moments throughout each day.
- Simplicity— My mind became much more attuned to finding pleasure in the little things.
- Teamwork— We both stepped up to support one another; for example, James knows I enjoy cooking dinner, so he decided to handle lunch every day.
Those are experiences that everyone deserves to have in their space. So let’s talk about how to achieve (or improve) them in yours, even when you’re not sheltering in place!
