**Thanks for your well wishes for my sweet niece who was battling a serious case of double pneumonia in the hospital, we are so happy that she is being moved down to a step down recovery floor and will soon be home. We are so excited and grateful for her progress and thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes, they really do work. Back home and back to business. I put the last few finishing touches on my post that had was supposed to appear yesterday, so here it is a day late** Hello! How is your weekend going? Hard to believe it’s the first weekend of Feb! I for one, will be happy to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. We have had no snow so very ready for the warmer air to soon make its way in and cannot wait to start seeing spring flowers and green grass! I am ready to fling open those windows and usher in the warmer air! Onward to my Seven on Sunday………. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 1 AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS STATIONERY Found this incredible company on Instagram a while back, Lemon Tree Paper Co and its been love at first sight ever since.

And a look at some of her simply gorgeous work! 2 TOUR PATRICIA ALTSCHUL’S STATELY CHARLESTON MANSION Patricia is such fun to watch and we here at Enchanted Home count her as a wonderful customer as well. I have had the pleasure of speaking to her a number of times and she is such a delight, really really sweet and so gracious. I loved touring her majestic southern home in this video….love her old world and elegant style. Testament to the fact that timeless traditional just never gets old…her home is a treasure trove of all things beautiful. Thought you too might enjoy it, this lady has figured out how to live “the good life”. 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST No rhyme or reason just what caught my eye this week on Instagram, always so much good to share! And all very random hope you enjoy this weeks roundup! 4 RECIPE ALERT I love a good tuna fish and I am very leery about buying it outside…as it has to be super fresh. So as a result I like to make it myself. I came across this variation of a dill tuna which was SO good. Sure to become a staple, reminds me of one that used to be served at a favorite restaurant many years ago that has since closed. I served mine on two slices of Ezekiel bread and it was so satisfying with a small cup of lentil soup. Guilt free and so delish. Recipe below. I also used cottage cheese in place of the mayo and you would be surprised how good it was, also made a few changes and noted them below. 2 (5 ounce / 142 grams) cans no-salt-added solid white tuna in water, no-salt-added Produce 2 Celery, large ribs 2 tbsp Dill, fresh(used more) 1/2 tsp Lemon, zest 1/4 scant cup Red onion ( I did not add the red onion) Condiments 1 tsp Dijon, yellow 5/16 cup Mayonnaise, real (used cottage cheese instead) Baking & Spices 1/2 tsp Black pepper, freshly cracked 1/4 tsp Salt (used a pinch if sea salt) 5. INSPIRING VIDEO OF THE YEAR You may have seen this but it just never gets old. I love this story, the coach, the kid on the opposite team, everyone involved in making Mitchell who is developmentally challenged feel like a million dollars and most importantly like he “belongs”, surely a lesson to be seen and shared. 6 NEW PRODUCTS COMING IN SOON!

My eating habits have dramatically changed since March in 2018. I was always very lucky to have maintained a good weight most of my life and basically ate whatever I wanted and I am talking with abandon (think lots of pasta, bread, cheese and more:) BUT then the 40’s and now 50’s creeped in and suddenly it just wasn’t that simple anymore. So in March I took charge and decided to get back to eating healthy, being healthier and most importantly to educate myself on nutrition. In the process, I accomplished all three- lost my weight that I wanted to lose (met my goal) and as a result now fit back into just about all of my clothes, feel so much better and have more energy. I feel like this was not so much a diet as it was a lifestyle change It does get harder as you get older so I figured there was no time to lose. Knowledge is power and now I feel informed on what is good for my body and am no longer fooled by gimmicks like “fat free” and “sugar free”. I am eating very clean and very pure and it feels great. Wondering where you stand on healthy eating and maintaining healthy diet? Which best describes you and your diet/eating habits? ________________________________________________ And there you have it!
