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.
When I heard about bullet journaling I think I shouted out loud, ‘it IS a thing!?’ Because I had been doing it for years without realizing it. You probably have to. Here is how you know if you are a bullet journaler in hiding: Do you keep lists? Or are you, as I like to […]
I was a child of the 35mm days. That countdown from ’24 photos remaining’ was treated with reverence! The photos themselves were treated with reverence, after all, you had to save your pennies to get the film developed. And remember photo CDs? I would pay the extra money to have my film digitized in an […]
Since I’ll be 34 this summer, I feel like I can say with certainty that I didn’t know a thing in my 20s (other than how to wear socks and sandals and identify the native plants of Southern BC. What a catch!). The 30s have given me a crash course in life, most of all […]

I recently had a hair cut…a crooked hair cut at that! I think highly of hairdressers, even if they might cut crookedly, mostly because they try so hard to make small talk and manage to look like they enjoy it. ‘Where are you from? Are you having a ladies’day out? Did you trim your bangs […]
There have been three times when my marriage was most strained (code: here marriage counsellor, take all our money #worthit) Those times were amplified when we first moved in together after a year together (at 22 and 19), when we were first married and Conor worked camp work, and when we had our second baby.

A few months ago I decided to put Simple on Purpose on hold. It had been an easy choice to put this blog on the back burner for a while. I have never relied on it for any income, I had some exciting projects to get off the ground with A Little Light and I […]

A couple years back we did our first A Day in the Life Round up. I and fourteen other West Coast parent bloggers shared what a day in our life was like. We are bringing the series back for another round! I love a day in the life posts. Maybe because I really genuinely wonder […]
