Add a Touch of Loveliness to Your Home This Summer

Big thank you to our sponsor, Air Wick©.

Summer brings a significant exhale. And I suppose I work hard to preserve the peace that comes with the early morning light, salty water, and hanging with kids who are built for the fleeting warmer months.

We’re already deep in a new travel-baseball season and will soon add surf camp, trips and a few other things to our days. It’s all good and fun – but hopefully, the wetsuits and towels make their way from multiple bags to the wash – along with all those uniforms and gear. It’s tricky to balance the conflicting layers of loving life outdoors and not frazzling when rushing home to host friends and family.

I didn’t think I was the home-fragrance type until being introduced to the new Air Wick© Freshmatic© Pure© Automatic Spray. With three different settings built into a sleek, minimalist device, the lowest setting feels subtle enough to add a light touch of loveliness to our space – while making me feel like the home is covered 24/7 with continuous odor neutralization in every corner (for up to 60 days).

It’s the little things that give me peace-of-mind when rushing from beach to baseball to back home again. I’m currently crushing on the Air Wick© Ocean Breeze scent (one of more than 15 Air Wick© scents available) – along with Gabby Bernstein, who I had the chance to meet and learn from at the recent Air Wick© mobile meditation event.

She taught me a simple (and beautiful) mantra to do with my children. Begin by touching your thumb to pointer finger – working your way down to thumb to pinky finger, while repeating:

Peace. Begins. With. Me.
Peace. Begins. With. Me.
Peace. Begins. With. Me.

Wishing you all peace and joy in the summer days ahead!
