Boost Mental & Relational Wellness

Building family memories and expressing yourself creatively can help boost your mental and relational wellness! Thanks to Suzi @ StartaMomBlog.com for teaching me the tools to create a blog to share my creativity and passion boosting wellness!

Relational wellness includes building and maintaining relationships with family and friends. Every moment you choose to be present with your family and friends, and invest in time creating special memories, you are choosing the value and importance of relationships & friendships.

Good close relationships help people live longer, live happier, and live with more purpose. Invest in your relationships, create together!

Fairy Garden Ideas

So the idea came around through my cousin who created the cutest fairy garden. She sent us the cutest picture and we all oohed and ahh-ed.
