Vor ein paar Tagen facetimte ich mit einem Freund, der seit über zwei Jahren in den USA lebt und gerade auf Heimatbesuch ist. Er erzählt mir, dass ihm Berlin jetzt oll, abgeranzt und unmodern vorkommt. Als er in einem Restaurant nach einem Glas Wasser fragt, bleibt der junge, sich ziemlich cool vorkommende Kellner mit rollenden Augen vor ihm stehen. Undenkbar in den USA. Service ist eine Herzensangelegenheit, man sollte es schon wollen. Sonst einfach lassen. Ich freue mich immer sehr, wenn ich Leute erlebe, denen Service und Dienstleistung Spaß macht. So wie vor kurzem in einem knallvollen Strandrestaurant in Scharbeutz, wo die Kellner trotzdem höflich und locker ihren Dienst durchzogen. Ich bin ja selbst im Dienstleistungsbereich und mache oft eine Übung daraus, meine Kunden in eine bessere Stimmung zu versetzen, wenn ich merke, dass sie schlecht drauf sind. Sind eben auch nur Menschen. Klar, manchmal bin auch ich überfordert. Versuche aber immer, es nicht an meinen Mitmenschen auszulassen. Und wenn das misslingt, schaue ich, es schnell wiedergutzumachen. Mit einem spendierten Kaffee, besonderer Anteilnahme beim nächsten Gespräch – whatver. Ich glaube, nein ich weiß: Wir können uns alle weiterentwickeln und auch aus eigenen blöden Mustern befreien. Niemand ist seinen Launen ausgeliefert oder seiner Umwelt. Es sei denn, man will sich zum Opfer machen. Dann ist man aber selbst schuld an seinem Unglück. Erst Recht kein Grund, es an den Mitmenschen auszulassen. Klingt ein bisschen wie das Wort zum Sonntag. In dem Fall das Wort zum bevorstehenden Wochenende. Be happy! #Tagebuch#Blogger#Coach#Lifestyleblogger#Stilblüten#instagood#picoftheday#pico#simplify#DigitalDiary#Service#Freundlichkeit#Energie#Weekend
This pup is the gentle soul. Always there, always ready for a hug, but has a strong will to explore, protect and eat all of the things. Always. He's eager to please, always does his best and can be a bit sneaky and cheeky. Alfie pup, I think you'll be a grand dog when you grow up. 😊 Thanks for choosing us. 💚
Last night was rough for both of my girls. We were up a lot, so this morning I am re-evaluating today’s schedule. It’s important after rough nights that you simplify your schedule as best you can. You don’t have to cancel everything but look at ways to decrease your stress that day.
My favorit milk glass which I use daily🥛 I can't believe how many vintage milk glasses and dishes I got rid of in these last few months. But I'm not sad. I'm happy that I'm one step closer to become a better minimalist✨✨✨ Simplifying my life✨✨That's my primary motto✨✨✨ ・
While it’s easy to become overwhelmed by your list of things to do, it’s easier to place 3-5 things on your list (#handful )per day and begin to experience #smallvictories as you tackle #onethingatatime
I may be in the middle of a move... BUT the first day of school waits for no mom. 😬 When the calendar turns to August that's my cue to start slowly prepping towards the first day of school and all the crazy that entails.
I could push it off and scramble at the end- but I don't like that feeling or the mama I turn into. So instead, I make myself some margin. And mama, if you are reading this I want you to have some margin too!
Follow the link in my bio to my shiny new website and a 5 step guide to Breezy Back to School Prep will be waiting for you! (Right up at the top of the homepage)
P.S. Erin over @joyfullettershop made this 1st Day Sign for me! Check her out- she makes the cutest stuff!
#regrann from @spiritual.teachers.of.our.time aho🙏🏼 Came back to this multiple times today. I remember, I’m reminded. Take it easy, keep it simple. Life is complex, it doesn’t need to be complicated. Reversing the habit of carrying things, to just experiencing them. Energy shift big time. So aho for the reminders Universe!

Using small decorative pots and tins are great for containing herbs 🌿...and I’m loving the way those white cutting boards are displayed. A picture perfect kitchen counter with “Pokey” as a bonus! 🙌🏻 💞
wondering how we will be approaching our themed-based preschool curriculum this year (a.k.a. Tot School 2.0)? head over to the blog to see what will be new this time around...over 3 years later! we are truly excited to jump in on monday where we’ll be exploring colors for our first unit 🎨

This thistle is proof that the season is slowing changing back into fall. I've seen this plant in bud, bloom and now shed, all on my lunch time walks. I don't know how to explain it but it just feels good to have witnessed it's growth.
We shall meet again next summer, my friend.#changeofseasons
An #organized#KitchenPantry just feels good! 😊 Have you ever done this? — You reorganize then give yourself excuses (for days, if not weeks) to just open the door and stare inside, taking in all its orderly glory?
If you have…then you know firsthand how great an organized space feels. And if you haven’t, then it might just be time to #GetOrganizedwithBridges 💪🏼
Joanna wanted to create an orange grove under her stairs and I’d say she nailed it. 🍊 Find these pieces and our other favorite items on THE shop page [thehomeedit.com/shop] under “shop the feed” // or shop via screenshot using the @liketoknow.it app // http://liketk.it/2wZrG 🌿 #thehomeedit#office#organization#housegoals
O R G 🍁 It’s been a while since I’ve posted a home (#diversion ) post. I blame all of the fall (and winter!) crap that is in the stores already for getting me in fall organization mode way early, but I’m here 🤷🏼♀️ Or maybe it’s being home with three kids 🌪 that is making my organization bug bite a little early.🤔
My closet got purged of my maternity & early postpartum clothes. I also put up two big swivel hooks today. And I was inspired by Sophia at @lemontree_interiors to ditch the ug shower bottles for some matchy ones. Neurotic? Yes. But these little things keep me sane. 🤪 I blame my mother and Marie Kondo. Any other Kondo converts out there? Or premature fall organizers? 🍂 Swipe for the before 🛠 And now back to summer. 😉
For fun, I took this personality quiz today that basically said I'm a rebel and that I question authority.
That having other people in charge of me chafes me and that I don't really care what other people think.
Well, duh. 😉
More than 7 years ago Ryan and I decided that the "American dream" wasn't so dreamy for us. We got rid of all our stuff including our house and moved into an RV.
We saved tons of money living in an RV park, and didn't really care about people who looked down at us for "living in a trailer park." Meanwhile they were all up to their eyeballs in debt or still living with their parents.
Of course, all those people suddenly thought we were cool when we started traveling full-time. 🤔
So anytime people tell me I SHOULD do something or are shocked about the choices I make, I take it with a grain of salt.
Because I'm happy making up my own rules, thank you very much!

WHAT A *PINCH ME* MOMENT! This week I was featured on the @todayshow website along with @todayparents in an article about back to school and 16 of the products that I think would be helpful for the season. WHAT?! It’s such an honor and fantastic way to start off one of my favorite (and busiest) seasons as an organizing expert working with families.
I have always loved watching the @todayshow (my girls are also OBSESSED with it!) and look to it for expert advice, tips, and more. And now that I am a parent myself, I religiously read @todayparents and have been grateful to be able to be a contributor to their site over the last year.
Back to school can be a stressful time for parents, and trust me...I totally get it! There are lists of items to buy, clothing and supplies to get prepared, and maybe even a rogue backpack or two left to unpack from the last school year (hey, no judgement!). I am sharing some of the products I talked about in the @todayshow article in my Instagram stories so make sure to check them out, and this week on the blog (link 👆🏻), I talk about a few of my favorite back to school tips for getting and staying organized at home and with routine.
TELL ME: Do you love back to school season or not? I actually love getting organized (I know, shocker!) when it comes to all the school supplies, new calendars, and routines. #backtoschool#organization#lifewithkids#organizedliving
