There are very few times in life when you see someone doing exactly what they were meant to do. Usually people like Oprah Winfrey, Joanna Gaines and Jimmy Fallon. But they can be everyday people like your doctor, too. When I see the ladies of The Home Edit, I know they are doing exactly what they were meant to do. They are the organizing pair that I can’t get enough of.Continue reading “The Home Organizing Team I’m Obsessed With”
How are you holding up with all that’s going on in the world?
I can’t think of any other time in our lifetime when it’s been so bad.
So many are feeling hopeless and lost.
I don’t feel there’s any need to cover the headlines because I think you already know about those.
But with the 24/7 coverage of grief, pain, loss and uncertainty there’s no doubt it’s impacting our mental and physical state.
With that in mind I’d like to suggest a mental vacation mood board.
I’ll do one too.
Mood boards are good for more than just goals and projects.
They are perfect for getting you back to center.
It doesn’t matter whether you use one for health and fitness, a home renovation project (like I’m doing) or just to remind you of the little things that bring you joy—a mood board is like coloring for adults.
It sparks the imagination.
I’ve been using mood boards for years at presentations and workshops.
I used them all the time when working with survivors of domestic violence, and children working through issues of abuse.
I find that they can elevate emotions, help a person identify areas of improvement in their life or work through sudden life changes.
Today, though, this mood board is centered around a renovation project we’re working on.
It’s simple. Light hearted. Uncluttered.
My mood board inspiration comes from some of my favorite home decor magazines.
I hope you enjoy them.
I’d love to see where you’re getting your inspiration from.
Feel free to comment and post here. Or, you can send it to me via e-mail by clicking the “say hello” tab at the top of the screen, and I gladly share it, here.
Stay safe. 💜—April

Patricia Heaton known for playing Deborah Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, Frankie Heck on The Middle and Dr. Carol Kenny on Carole’s Second Act is inviting you to shop her closet—for a good cause.
Heaton posted the following on her Instagram page this afternoon “Shop selected looks from my personal collection on @therealreal Proceeds will be donated to @feedingamerica to support COVID-19 relief efforts. The Feeding America network of food banks is leading the fight to #EndHunger
I met Heaton once while at a fundraiser. She seemed nice and down-to-earth, as was her husband. I wouldn’t say that about everyone who was there that night. Shh.
In case you’re wondering
The RealReal, Inc. is an online and brick-and-mortar marketplace for authenticated luxury consignment.

Hey guys! How are you this weekend? It’s burning hot here on the West Coast with temperatures running anywhere from 80 degrees to 124, depending on where you live.
With temperatures like that I can’t believe stores are clearing out summer duds and moving into back-to-school and fall fashion.
While it’s a great time to get in on the end of summer deals, there’s still plenty of summer heat for me to enjoy these gorgeous shoes. (And you too if you’re interested)
What you’re looking at are Aerosoles Meadow Wedge Sandals in the Martha Stewart collection.
Last year, Martha Stewart partnered with Aerosoles to be their spokesperson, and to create the Martha Stewart Collection.
“What we’re trying to do with Aerosoles is make gorgeous shoes at just the right price.” —Martha Stewart interview with WWD
If you don’t know who Aerosoles is I highly recommend you check them out.
They are all about fashion that feels good. (#FashionThatFeelsGood)
Here you can see how plush they are on the inside.
I went with the color green which is a departure from my usual black, because they were out of black in my size.
I have no regrets!
This color is the perfect neutral compliment. These beauties go with everything.
One of the things I love about a wedge heel is the support I get from them.
After chemotherapy treatments my feet and legs hurt so bad that it’s hard to find a cute shoe for me.
But it doesn’t matter what your situation (or age) is, the odds are you’d look great in these.
I broke my toe on my left foot, so I couldn’t do a photo shoot with me wearing the shoes.
As soon as I can I’ll post a photo with me in them on Instagram. So follow me over there for more.
In full disclosure:
I’m so excited to share that I won these shoes in an Aerosoles Instagram contest. (What?!)
I sure did!
I never win anything. Over the last few months I’ve one a couple of things that have now been added to my favorite things list.
I can’t wait to tell you more. But please know that my opinion is mine and mine alone.
Neither Aerosoles nor Martha Stewart asked me to share these with you and I have not received any compensation for this post.
It is my desire to look out for the best interest of the consumer since I am one too.
I’m already an Aerosoles shopper so when I entered this contest I knew I was going to get a pair of shoes I would love.
And I did!
What brands do you wear?
