Four years ago I was home with three small kids. I was feeling overwhelmed, restless, and exhausted. I stumbled across minimalism and started decluttering my home. As I went through the decluttering process I started asking myself questions about these things I let into my home and life.
I realized I had been on autopilot in so many areas of my life.
It started my drive to live life with more passion and purpose.
I don’t want my kids to grow up with me left wondering what happened to the years.

When is the last time you tried something new? A new food, maybe a new hobby, perhaps you got wild and parted your hair on the other side (gasp!). And I don’t mean reading or pinning about something new (sheepishly raises hand), but actually doing something new. why we should do it This has been one […]
Today I had to tap into what I’ve been learning about coaching and talk myself through a badittude. Here is how it went down: I had a three-year-old who was a threenager today. I stress-ate taquitos for lunch. I made a plan with my husband that I would go to the gym right after dinner. […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about the time in my life where everything seemed to suck. Parenting was depleting all my resources, I felt in over my head on a daily basis. My marriage was bookended with resentment on both sides, I knew we were both so lost and angry. I felt restless and […]
I wish that once you declutter your house is permanently organized and tidy. Unfortunately, there is always stuff coming back into the house and you need to declutter repeatedly. I’m not the kind of lady who has her life together enough to follow some kind of decluttering calendar to make sure I keep on it. […]

This post was supposed to be sopped full of victorious pictures and drenching with exclamation marks framing ‘I DID IT!’ sentiments! I would remind you that a dear friend asked me to run this race with her, I had to say yes. I would tell you how this pasty girl (me), with subzero athletic ability, […]
So here I am living on the ‘ball’ trying to encourage some baby birthing action. I’ll be 38 weeks on Monday and go to get my cervix stretched. The OBGYN said that it induces labour in 1 out of 7 preggos. Being dilated ahead of time helps those odds. So guess I better just relax […]
Simple doesn’t mean ‘less of everything’. It means less of the distractions. Less of the excess. Less of what doesn’t truly matter to you (but for a host of reasons, you let it into your home and your life). Choosing simple is picking the best and leaving the rest. But there is always a choice […]
I started cleaning out my closet for the #moms30for30 No YOU have a cardigan problem! Yeah, so maybe there is a librarian on Pinterest with a picture of my sweater collection on her ‘Chilly and Stylin” board. I tried on most everything in my mish-mash of career woman, mom, pre-pregnancy, pregnant, post-pregnant clothes. I’m paring […]
