“Remember, gather fresh flowers into dainty vases even when money is sparse during your marriage allowing its beauty to enhance the devotion.”

Inspiration to keep a tidy toilet originated from blogger Milu, from Milu’s Dream Traveler, where I first learned about the Toire no Kami-sama – Goddess in the Toilet. Funny. Also, my daddy believed that bathrooms in eating establishments gave good indicators of the kitchen facilities. That is, dirty toilet areas equal the same kitchen quality. I guess he could be right…oh, yummy, let’s eat!
