DIMARE DIARIES: ANDREA DUCLOS A.K.A. ‘OHDEARDREA’

Deborah DiMare

1. To stay centered, what is one activity you do religiously daily or weekly?

Drea: I sit outside. Sometimes it’s a bit difficult working from home because I feel like I’m often trapped, especially with the Florida heat— but I always try to make it a point to sit outside in the hot sun with a cool glass of water. Just feeling the breeze and sunshine.

2. What are the sources of happiness in your home?

Drea: The light and sunshine for sure! I love how cozy and bright our space is— and when the windows are open and the breeze comes in? It’s magic!

#LEGO®: SO MUCH MORE THAN A TINY PIECE OF PLASTIC

Deborah DiMare

Sometimes you find profound things in the simplicity of a favorite childhood toy. I was on Facebook recently and came across a picture my friend Pablo and his son Dylan (pictured above). He is playing with his son, piecing together colorful bits of plastic, but really piecing together some pretty big life lessons. When I asked him about his love of LEGO® systems, he sang the praises of these colorful little blocks.

Autism & Animals

Deborah DiMare

APRIL IS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

I have always had pets. My children have been fortunate enough to have never known life without a dog cuddling next to them. We are a family of animal lovers. Pets are not only warm, fuzzy loving buddies, but they offer developmental benefits to children, especially children in the Spectrum of Autism. A recent study was performed at four schools in Australia. The students in the Autistic Spectrum were monitored as they were playing with either toys or the classroom guinea pigs. The children were more verbal and social when they were with the guinea pigs than when they were playing with dolls. They were also more approachable while playing with the guinea pigs. Pets are social icebreakers. They force even the most socially unskilled to become social. Our dog, Lucca, has led us to more people who have become life long friends endless times. So, it only stands to reason, that children and adults within the Autistic Spectrum would benefit even more. Having a pet next to them is providing them with the security and confidence to become social, tactile, aware and emotional. It’s a win win all around.

diMare design: To stay centered, what is one activity you do religiously daily or weekly? Lynette Janac (LJ): Count my blessings. In a world of constant go-go-go, I am extremely grateful that I have something to be busy about.

What are the sources of happiness in your home? LJ: Everything!  I love being home.  Home is my sanctuary.  A time for me to be with just me. Many hours a day are spent with people in various capacities.  When I walk through the threshold of my door, phone is on silent and I am ready for “me time”.

What is your favorite room? LJ: Bedroom.  I love sleeping. I have the most amazing comfortable bed with a beautiful view to wake up to.  Okay, my 2nd favorite is my balcony. For years I lived here without balcony furniture that I enjoyed and recently I changed that! Now I love being out there!
