Feed the soul.

Well, it’s that time of year to start again! While many of you have already begun your fresh start, some of us (yes, myself included) are still working on packing away the Christmas and holiday decor, trying to make our way out of our frozen driveway, and get this new year’s resolution list on paper!  It’s hard to take time for ourselves and get our plan of action in place, isn’t it?  Well, I may not be able to help in all areas, but I can tell you that we here at Yours & Meyn, Simply Designed have made a great start to the NEW YEAR!

Not only do we have new merchandise beginning to arrive daily, but we have fresh new looks and ideas flowing freely. It really is a great time to stop by with the store, let us share some ideas with you and get to know your home decor needs a little better. It’s about making time to create a home where you want to share it with your family and friends, a place to cozy up and have a game night or just food and conversation. Your home. It feeds the soul.

Time with Friends.

Isn’t it a wonderful thing when you can spend time with your best girls, whether it is your daughter, girlfriend, mom or sister?! We love Ladies Night Out in downtown Crystal Lake and wonder why we don’t just get together with friends more  often.

That is what this Blog is all about-connecting with others, spending time, reading and learning about all that we at Yours & Meyn, strive to do- create beautiful homes to bring family and friends together. I hope that you will join me, Mary Meyn on an adventure (one that I never thought I would take) into the world of blogging.

I’ll try to fill you in on the newest furnishings that this historical Downtown Crystal Lake location has to offer. Along with some other interesting creative thoughts, ideas and maybe some fun recipes as well, you can begin with something from our book collection.

Who knows where my brain will take us.

Oh, and if you haven’t already- please follow us on Pinterest and Facebook. Share this blog and our webpage. I’d appreciate that. Thanks!

Great new recipes abound with these books!
