Although this blog is centred on minimalism and intentional living, I have shared a lot of thoughts on meal planning. Why? Because meal planning makes life easier! Ever since we had kids, I have relied on meal planning to be a way to manage my life. Before kids, it was a lot of smoothies and […]
Sometimes my coaching clients ask for help with minimalism. This is a road I know well and I could talk about it all day. One hot topic is PILES OF CLUTTER. We might think that decluttering will eliminate all the clutter from our lives. But when we remove the excess we are still left with […]
This past week Conor and I celebrated 10 years married, 14 years together. We went on a little road trip and started a conversation about what we think it takes to make a marriage work. I know we are only a decade into marriage and it feels cliché to even try to give marriage advice […]
