Join in Simple Saturdays
Around here I'm doing less blogging and more emailing. Sign up to get the bi-weekly email Simple Saturdays in your inbox.
You will love it. It isn't just any old email! It is a fun, quick read of insights, tips and references for everything simple, on purpose, and waffles.
I am the first to admit I am a creature of habit and many of those habits don’t always help me live optimally. I mean, sometimes the soul just needs a good whiskey and netflix. But often our sometimes can become habit, a staple in our daily routine. I read this interesting nerdy book […]
When Simple Saturday readers email me, a common problem they share with me is that they are wanting to simplify their home but their spouse is less excited about it. I have some thoughts on this I hope will help those struggling with this . . . . MOTIVATE WHO THEY ARE RATHER […]
I was sitting at the table reciting our upcoming family schedule like a drill sergeant. There was my two-and-half-year-old son running around the table, my year old daughter throwing a fit over everything she could think of and my husband with zero expression on his face.
