Three Things Thursday December -

Welcome to this quarter’s blog series, Three Things Thursday!

I am here to share just THREE things that I am into right now to enhance my world as wife, mom and work from home business owner.

Feel free to reach out at any time if you have any questions about the information I share. I got this idea from the awesome newsletter I receive each week from Mama Natural. Such a great idea for busy women!

1. Hostess Gift Ideas

My BFF is a certified ettiquette educator. In May I attended a program she delivered for business professionals all about ettiquette when dining out and with clients. I learned that it is proper etiquette to gift someone a hostess gift when you are invited to their home for dinner. I started doing this and I learned it doesn’t have to be an expensive gift for the gesture to be meaningful. Ideas for hostess gifts: flowers, candy, a coffee mug, a puzzle, a book, etc.

2. Exercising with Kids

Michigan is not known for it’s cold, gray winters. I have found that if I can keep myself active through the winter months, I can remain positive and patient with my family. Check out one of my Coffee with Maria Facebook Lives where I talk about how we work together as a family to keep exercise as a priority!

3. Stop and Smell the Flowers

I downloaded a FREE app a few months ago that has added some serenity to my days. It’s called Mindfulness and what it does is sounds a monk-link bell ten times randomly though out the day. You are meant to take a moment to pay attention to what it is you are doing. It’s geared towards helping you live an intentional life! Find the app here.
