Storage Wars

July 19, 2013

Have you asked your parents (or anyone) to keep and store your personal items?

This list might include your furniture, your trophies, your collections of school projects, your personal letters and/or diaries, your yearbooks, and your paperback books and magazine collections.

Don't forget about your photo albums, your scrap books, your halloween costumes and your old bikes, riding toys and camping gear!

Funeral Flowers

July 12, 2013

People agree that your wedding should be beautiful.

We celebrate weddings with fragrant, colorful flowers that are cheerful and abundant. 

Why shouldn't your funeral or memorial service be the same? 

Flowers represent so many emotions and mark many different occassions:  Celebrations, birthdays, joy, grief, love, sickness, forgiveness, remorse, and empathy.  Loved ones pay their respect often with flowers as an expression of sympathy.

Downsizing

July 7, 2013

Why do we spend our lives adding tangible personal property to the already large mountain of "stuff" and complexities in our lives, when ultimately we will reach a tipping point when we end up having to toss, discard, donate and downsize our objects and our lives in the end?
