Exercise and Nutrition

We are all so very busy and finding extra time to take care of ourselves can be exhausting. Often times, we end up not doing anything at all. As busy women, we need the proper nutrition and exercise to support ourselves. Recently, I’ve been thinking about how I can better my health and add more exercise to my life. I was inspired by an interview with actress, Kate Walsh, who celebrated her 50th birthday last year. She has made a commitment to prioritize her self-care routine. Well, I decided I want to do the same thing. NO MORE EXCUSES!

If I could go back in my life and do things over again, I would take better care of my body. Do any of you feel that way? I’ve been pretty healthy my whole life, but I think that was simply good luck because I can’t say it was because of the way I was eating. When I was younger, I ate a lot of carbs. Potatoes, pasta, and bread were my favorite. Over time, I gained weight and then began noticing that I was more sluggish and had less energy to do the things I love. I am quickly learning the importance of moderation.

Embroidery Hoop Frame

Just like so many others I’m a huge fan of farmhouse signs. They are so simple, but yet pack a punch when decorating in a farmhouse style. I also really like the way people are making wall hangings and wreaths with embroidery hoops that are so popular right now. I decided to combine the two ideas and create a round sign and make an embroidery hoop frame. Turned out to be so easy and I love the results.
