I am so excited to be writing this post!

I began this journey (that I have yet to find the right name for) about a year ago. I stumbled upon the author Jennifer L. Scott while researching etiquette and she instantly became a favorite of mine. She writes about French living, focussing on how to live your best life. Living your life to the best ability you can and France!? How could I not love her books?

While my journey started well before, into my childhood years, I never found a community that fit my interest and desires. If you love working out, all you have to do is join a gym and your people are all around you. Want to live a passionate life? Finding a community back in 2001 was nearly impossible. As the time/ technology has changed, making it possible for that community to be reached I have found being apart of a said community only makes me more passionate about living my life in this way.

I want to take a moment here and say if you are looking for a community or something that sparks your passion, I will leave links below to what I have found to be passion enhancing for myself. 

Today I am sharing 8 books that I have enjoyed as I am cultivating a life of pleasure. These all range from etiquette, house cleaning, to topic-specific books that have helped me gain knowledge as I create this life.  I have found each book helpful in their own way along my journey and am happy to share them with you.

I wanted to share an extra piece of material into today's blog post. Although these are not books, these show's have given me some sort of insight into a cultivating life that I want to live. While the entire show is not about cultivating a life, I do feel that by watching a particular television program you do begin to internalize some of their behaviors.

Keeping Up Appearances 

When I was a little girl I would watch this show every night with my parents. I would crawl into bed with my mom and try and stay up as late as I could. In my family we would call this show "The Funny Lady" and that is what I knew her as until I found out the show had another name. While this show is a comedy it does show a level of living and striving for a cultivating life.

The Perfect Housewife 

I recently found this show after watching a recommendation video from Jennifer L. Scott. As soon as I started watching I was hooked! There are great tips throughout this show but mostly it makes me want to get up and clean my house. I find I enjoy watching this show while I sort through a box of things that I have had piled up.

I hope you have a fantastic week!
