It’s important to remember to take some time to yourself every now and then and just slow down and enjoy life. One of my favorite places to do this, is my family’s house in Rhode Island. It’s so peaceful and quiet here, compared to the face paced life of New York City.
I love waking up in the morning to the sound of morning doves, then putting on my kimono bathrobe, going downstairs, and having my morning cup of tea in our living room which as a corner, that is all windows. I love looking out those windows at the landscape, and basking in the morning sun coming through them.
Leaving my home in Rhode Island, is always bittersweet. I love going out there, and I love living in New York City. But I always remember that whatever life throws my way, I can always handle it, and I can always slow down and come out to Rhode Island, when I need to recharge. Everyone should always have a place they can just let everything go in their life, and just disconnect from the world at large for a while, whether it’s just a room, or a location. This is my place.
