A couple times a year I co-host a challenge with Raj from Pink Chai Living. It is called the #moms30for30 and the challenge is to wear 30 items of clothes for 30 days. I do the challenge time and time again because I always learn something. WHAT I LEARN and RELEARN I often learn […]
Before I get into what I learned, I should probably give you a rundown of what is Whole 30 and why I did it. What is it: The whole 30 involves spending 30 days eating a diet that is free from dairy, gluten, grains, sugar, alcohol, peanuts, legumes, soy. So you pretty much eat meat, […]
I recently did the whole 30 challenge. That is, no sugar, dairy, gluten, grains, legumes, peanuts, soy, or alcohol for 30 days.

There was my two-and-half-year-old son running around the table, my year old daughter throwing a fit over everything she could think of and my husband with zero expression on his face. He put down his lunch, looked me in the […]
Before I ever considered myself a ‘minimalist’ I had some notions about what the word meant. It means someone who lives in an almost empty house.

What is hygge? My bestie recently remodelled her kitchen and moved some furniture in her living room. I plunked down on her couch and shouted ‘your couch is hygge now!‘ (pronounced hoo-guh, by the way). Her couch used to be in front of the big living room window and now it was perpendicular to it […]
