Last year I started the 7 things I love about… series in an effort to try to love every month of the year. For the most part it worked, even though it was like getting blood from a stone finding seven things for months during the hot and sticky season (August, I’m looking at you). I realized though that if I continued it this year it would basically be like watching reruns, so we’re going to change it up a bit for 2013! So let’s start by trying seven things to make the ordinary a little more extraordinary, shall we?
Maybe it’s because I just returned from vacation and am having a bit of withdrawal, but I think a little more luxury in our everyday rituals wouldn’t be a bad idea. Our hotel room had a giant rain shower head and I swear to you even though I am completely not a morning person I looked forward to getting out of bed just so I could hop in and stand under the “rain” for a while. Although at this point I feel like I should say “results not typical, you may experience less joy if your shower head is not in a cute hotel in Vienna at Christmastime”, but I stand by your morning ritual still being much improved. What will definitely make you more of a morning person regardless of locale is a white noise machine. I’ve been sleeping with the Dohm for the past week and I’ve never slept better in my life. I’ve even woken up before my alarm on most days, a feat I’ve previously only heard others speak of but never experienced and frankly thought was no more than an urban legend. Yup, it’s that good.
