"Be a Tourist at Home"
Summer is in full swing now! How is it going for you? Are your kids bickering and making a mess of your home like my children? Please say "yes" and make it feel normal to me!
A few days before school let out for the summer, I finished a big project early (this rarely happens). My reward to myself and my dog was visiting the Peony Garden at Nichols Arboretum. In all the years I have lived here, I had never seen the peonies in bloom and I love peony blooms.
I was inspired to make this little excursion both by Gretchen Rubin's Happier Podcast tip to "Be a Tourist at Home" and my MBA classmate Jun Su who lives in Hong Kong, China.
Through Jun's Facebook posts I noticed that almost every weekend he hikes with his family in the wilderness areas of Hong Kong. I had no idea that nearly 75% of Hong Kong was undeveloped.
Jun recently subscribed to "Your Simply Organized Life" my monthly e-newsletter (sign up above). When he e-mailed me to share his family's small space living arrangements in Hong Kong, I was fascinated and hope you will be too! My next post will include description and photos of Jun's Hong Kong apartment.
Do you have a solution or challenge you would like to share? I am all ears! Leave a comment below or send me an e-mail!
All My Best,
