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.

This small town lacked the forums and events to meet people in ‘proper’ ways. I assumed I would be […]
