I'm on my second cup of hazelnut hot chocolate of the day. That tells you that I'm having a day where chocolate is the only thing keeping me going. I thought I'd take these chocolate-induced moments of peace to share why having a minimal Christmas has been the best decision for us. At first, it… Continue reading A Minimal Christmas
The time has come for us to leave California so my husband can continue pursuing his education and find more job opportunities in his industry. We will be moving to Utah, which is both terrifying and...well, mostly terrifying. All our close family members live in the same town as us, so to say that I'm… Continue reading Why I’m So Excited to Downsize

It takes a little bit of time to do these things, but it's a small price to pay. It takes a lot longer to clean your home when… Continue reading 10 Habits for a Tidy Home
Paper clutter is my nightmare. It's the only thing I don't enjoy organizing and sorting through, but it's so important to know where important documents are in your home.

I've always refused to believe that having kids would mean that my house would always be a wreck. To be sure, kids are messy.
