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 don’t know if it was the ‘to do’ list, the realization of the shrinking timeline to get ish done, the increase in more painful BH contractions I didn’t have the first time round, or my husband mentioning “your belly used to be there, and now it’s here, it’s crazy you don’t have WAY MORE […]
You know you have no social life anymore when you and your husband say in unison ‘Who is calling so late!?’ It’s only 9pm and what’s sadder? It’s your parents phoning to wish you Happy New Years before their party gets too wild and they forget they have kids to call. Once the bambinos were […]
