This is the feeling I hope to bring to the women of George Herman House, in Toronto, a supportive home for women with mental and emotional health issues. I've just joined forces with a wonderful group of bloggers to help a great cause and show our support for this organization by giving them a much needed outdoor sanctuary.
A beautiful outdoor environment is nurturing for the soul and very uplifting. It can be a place to escape and dream as well as somewhere to enjoy our short summer season amidst friends and loved ones over a lemonade, laughter and great stories.
This is the space they have now
Here are some inspiration shots of outdoor spaces that I love and hope we can bring in some of these elements to the space.
Whenever I feel like things are not as I would like them to be, I stop myself and remember how lucky I am to have a healthy child, a loving family, amazing friends and more shoes & chocolate than a girl really needs! It is so important with our busy lives today that we stop sometimes and just be grateful for all we have and to show our gratitude by paying it forward.
GHH helps women develop the skills they need to live independently with confidence and dignity. If you can help in any way, please click here to for more details. Thank you for your support and for providing hope in the garden for the women of Geoge Herman House.
