If You Need Me, I’ll Be Failing At Life This Morning


Every Sunday, I tentatively plan my week. Every day, I plan the daytime hours while the kids are at school. I have to or the bathrooms would never get clean, blog photos and posts would never get done and I would just wander around lost. I’m not a morning person, but if I’m not productive in the morning, the kids…

The Confusion Surrounding Minimalism: Why I’m a #hyggeminimalist.


When you think of minimalism, do you immediately think of empty show home-type rooms? Or clinical white walls? That is what I thought, too!! There is a misconception that you can’t own anything extra and call yourself a minimalist. That you can’t own collections, your room can’t be comfortable, and you can’t have anything on your shelves. Arrange mindfully. Let…

Sleep Stories


I have never been the best sleeper. I think it is because I get anxious at night- I always have. This cartoon explains it perfectly:   Usually those thoughts crop up when I am in that hazy place between asleep and fully awake, which means that as I am about to drift off or just as I am about to…

Surviving the Introvert Hangover.


I feel a little jangly today. My stomach feels off, probably from all the sugar in the apple crisp last night (worth it!), or maybe all the socializing, and my muscles are sore from working out. We had a busy weekend and now I feel “hungover” of sorts. I get like this after a big weekend. (#introvertproblems) Except for my…

Memories of Getting the Mail With My Mom.


We are under a winter snow warning! This has been the snowiest winter I’ve seen in Calgary since I moved here in 2007. A lot of the snow has gathered on our trees and mailboxes, as you can see here, in the blue early morning light:     A lot of people hate that we don’t have door-to-door delivery anymore…

Organizing Collections and Letting Ideas Flow.


I am supposed to be working. I am supposed to be writing some articles to submit, paying my bills and doing my online course. But I can’t settle into it because my bookshelf is untidy. Also, I see a dust bunny on my floor, and my cabinet is too crowded. I’m having one of those scattered days where every little…

The 5 Best Articles On Minimalism


I’m really into this new minimalism trend. I hope it becomes a lifestyle for most people and doesn’t fade. I support buying less things of greater quality and creating less waste. The shift from rapid consumerism to buying fewer quality goods makes me very happy! Before we bought our house, we knew that we wanted to buy small and only…

Giving Less of A F*ck.


In 2018, I’m making some changes. Not resolutions. But big changes out of necessity. My body can tell when I’m unhappy and depressed- it gives up on me. My skin gets bad, my knees give out, colds last forever, my muscles hurt and my sleep suffers. I am a mess. I am sick of being a mess. So, 2018 is…

My Seventh Year Anniversary!


I have been married to Josh for 7 years! Hurray!! I am still as in love with him as the first moment we met. As soon as I talked to him 7 years ago, I knew that I would be with him forever. It sounds as bizarre and crazy as feeling that was! How can you know that? I just…
