I am a busy mom of three and each day when I think about the many messes I am cleaning up I think even on our toughest of days I feel grateful to live this life with my happy little mess makers. As a mom who want my children to live lives that are happy and healthy the most important thing to me is making sure our home is clean and that even if we make messes cleaning up can be just as fun too. I think about all those moments I spent with water and as ordinary as they may seem at the end of the day we are all transformed by water in some way or another.
This week I took a trip to Chicago to visit the DREAM2O Delta Showroom located inside The Merchandise Mart. An incredible awe inspiring place that’s the spot to visit when decorating your home.
Delta wants families like ours to live a happy life and know that messes happen but that water has the power to transform you. To make you feel alive again, to splash around with babies in bubble baths or to wash of the sweat for a long run, it’s always water we turn to to make us feel alive and to restore us. It’s the biggest connection I made to Delta and it’s something we can all relate to.
We live in California and it’s nice to know that Delta Faucet takes water conservation seriously by creating products that not only work and work well but that also save water. While inside the DREAM2O Delta Showroom we had the chance to learn more about how Delta designs their products and had a chance to put them to the test because in their showroom everything works, even the showers!
Some of my favorite features on the Delta 2.0 Touch faucets is that with the simple touch you can turn on or off your faucet. Have messy hands in the kitchen? Never touch the facet handle again because with a simple touch it’s on and your hands are clean. The bathroom faucets work with the same Touch 2.0 Technology except you just need to come within four inches of the faucet to turn it on or off.
Did you know the average person uses 14 minutes of water every time they brush their teeth? The Delta 2.0 Touch Technology Faucet also has a set time so it turns of automatically again saving water. Great for busy moms with kids because it turns the water off for them. To turn the water back on just come again within four inches of the faucet. I am convinced every home needs these in their bathrooms!
Delta also makes a wide variety of shower products and we learned that they’re designed to save water but ever sacrifice style and function. We saw under a strobe light how their water droplets spiral out giving you a fuller and more powerful stream of water while cutting back on water usage. With Delta Faucet you can truly find the perfect shower for you.
Once we had a chance to find out about the technology we had the unique chance to create a HappiMess and wonderful memory cooking with Chef Gale Gand. We started by sampling some of her favorite recipes and then got our hands dirty in the kitchen.
My favorite recipe had to be the Split Pea Hummus. The recipe was super simple, one bag of peas, 10 leaves of mint, olive oil, salt & pepper. Top of crostini and add a slow cooked beef on top. This recipe went against everything I thought you could do and really delighted my palette. We went on to cook our own versions of grilled cheese with exciting flavors like pickled squash on rye and muenster cheese with fresh figs. I really felt like I learned something new and am excited to really think outside the box by creating memorable and flavorful meals.
I actually have the Delta 2.0 Touch Faucet in our kitchen and as a mom who enjoys spending time in my kitchen I know how nice it is to have style and function I can depend on. Whether it’s cleaning our hands while making dinner, or washing up after playing with our pets our kitchen sink sees a lot of use.
It was a lot of fun creating new memories and seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Some of my best memories are in the kitchen, whether it’s with friends in a new city or making cookies with my daughters it’s those moments that also have the power to transform us.
Why do people treat mess like it’s a bad thing? It’s actually the evidence of a life well lived. When you’re out there making, creating, doing and playing, embrace your #HappiMess and let Delta kitchen and bath innovations help clean up so you can do it all again tomorrow.
