++simple family++

It started with a pivotal NEW YEAR’s Eve vision setting session. We started by asking ourselves what we want our kids to grow up to be, and what we wanted to do with our kids.

Since then, we have been working on ‘intentional parenting’ or as I call it ‘mom on purpose‘.

The day to day living out of your vision for your family will show itself in your Family Culture. That unique way you do life as a family.

I’ve written about it here Build Up Your Family Culture and loved this article by Kindred Grace on Building a Home Your Kids Want to Come Home To

My thoughts on Tidying Up on Netflix, the reverence we have for our stuff, and how we approach decluttering.


++ the currently list++

READING: North of Normal.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I am reading it as part of a Book Club with A Little Light.

The Last Letter from Your Lover. 

LOVING: My electric pencil sharpener.

WEARING: This outfit (but with boots not heels #obvi). I just want to formally thank all the fellow moms who don’t call me out for wearing what are basically Fancy Pajamas.

DOING: Working through the Life on Purpose Workbook with Conor. So far we have set a vision for four areas of our life and have five left to go. We have had some really great conversations and have gotten on the same page about a lot of things.

LISTENING TO: Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel. My bestie told me about this marriage therapist who has a podcast of her actual sessions. It is so interesting

LEARNING: That playing Jenga with my kids really stresses me out. It is probably the Type 9 in me.  My kids are actually here to PLAY the game and I am learning from them how to really do that.
