Samantha Reitmayer Sano always has the perfect words: “If you are a junkie like me then you probably remember the house in Something’s Gotta Give. I have watched that movie repeatedly just for the sake of the house. Well, this home is not in the Hamptons but it feels like it and it very much reminds me of the SGG home.”
Please read about Sam’s peek into 7291 Williamson Road (in Lakewood, just a stroll to White Rock Lake) on the coveted style/SWOON blog. Thanks for stopping by, Sam!

Meet me in Crested Butte! Ski, bike, hike, fish, explore…

Prepare for winter ski season and years of adventures to come. Fall is a great time to think about investing in a winter/summer retreat for your family or corporation. These videos are homemade virtual tours of a brand new, timber-frame home built on Mount Crested Butte.
5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 half-bathroom, 6190 square feet, 0.7 acres, 2 car garage. I have it co-listed with a local Butte broker. This home is built with impeccable detail and interior design and it is partially furnished.

An Instant Vacation

Throughout our lives, most of us are led to believe that relaxation is best pursued outside of the home. As a result, we spend months anticipating weeklong vacations, seldom fully appreciating the leisure time we are blessed with on a more regular basis. It is possible, however, to reexperience the same utterly relaxed state you slip into while on holiday within your home’s walls. The feelings of serenity you enjoy during a vacation are a product of your outlook rather than your locale. You give yourself permission to enjoy yourself and unwind while on vacation. Granting yourself the same privilege while at home allows you to experience complete relaxation, even when surrounded by routine.

Our homes can be distracting places as most survival tasks are addressed there. Reviving the tranquility you felt on holiday is as easy as creating an atmosphere that helps you relax. First, divest yourself of the notion that messes must be cleaned up immediately and reaffirm that relaxation is as vital as physical nourishment. Then, set the mood. Music that reminds you of a beloved vacation destination can put you in a vacation mind-set. The exotic flavor of a tropical beverage or the spiciness a favorite ethnic dish can transport you to a more restful mental space. Finally, put aside your projects and commit to doing only what you consider truly pleasurable. Your responsibilities will wait as you put up your feet and revel in peacefulness that comes from within.

If you find it difficult to ignore the temptation to simply fall back into your usual schedule, consider that relaxation should occupy a prominent place on your to-do list. You deserve to take “you time” and to care for yourself, even during life’s busy periods. While you may not always be able to get away from it all, you can still nurture yourself and regain your peace of mind.
