Minimalism often brings about thoughts of bare rooms in a household where only the absolute essentials are purchased. As I began decluttering this is the image that I had fallen in love with and kept striving for. However as time has gone by the image in my head has evolved into my own version [...]
It’s crazy to think that it’s been a year since I started Small, Simple & Sunny! I’m typically one of those people who starts a project but has trouble following through, and so it truly feels great to be able to say I’ve stuck with this blog for a year (even if I’ve been [...]
Slow living can be defined as “a lifestyle emphasizing slower approaches to aspects of everyday life” (Wikipedia). With our world changing due to COVID-19 it feels as though we are all doing some slow living these days.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for Fall to be here. I want to say goodbye to this sweltering hot and humid Virginia weather and say hello to temperatures in the 70’s, changing leaves and the occasional Pumpkin Spice Latte (yes, I am one of those people…). But wait, if the [...]
If you had given me a plant of any kind 6 years ago it would have been dead within a week. Growing up I had always had a brown thumb. I thought plants were lovely- I just never managed to keep many of them alive. In middle school I asked my mom if I [...]
