So what can you do on this site?
Read my most popular post to date, where I wrote candidly about being real in a fake world. Or if you need to laugh and relate, head over and read about my shopping problems and complete lack of fashion sense. I even do video posts occasionally and ramble on about stuff. Watch this video here and get sneak peak at my living room, if you’re interested to see just how messy it is.
You can read a little more of how this blog began here.
A visit to the doctor last year for what turned out to be a chronic tension headache (in addition to other stress symptoms that I’m way too fit and young to be having) helped me realize that I needed to change my lifestyle. It was hectic, stressful, and demanding – everything I never wanted my life to look like.
Somehow I was running my own business, working a regular job on the side, homeschooling my children, helping my man with his side business, and trying to hold the family together. Where were all those wonderful Pinterest moments that moms are supposed to have anyway? Grief, I was struggling to get some version of dinner on the table – forget desserts shaped like zoo animals and high-heeled shoes!
It had to stop.
I began with sifting through the things that were most important to me and cutting out anything that didn’t fit. Since then, I’ve been cutting clutter, streamlining meals using simple healthy ingredients, surrounding our family with chemical-free living, and paring down activities and commitments to the bare minimum. In return, I found more room for my family and giving back to others – and less stress for me (watch my video series on how I reduced stress here).
This is my journey.
Not glamorous. But it’s simple, wholesome, and good.
