Do a quick Google search on “people pleaser” and this definition from Psychology Today immediately pops up: “one of the nicest and most helpful people you know. They never say no”. I’m not sure about you, but for the majority of my life this is the “bucket” I would place myself in. Today, I’m [...]
Summer is in full swing and for many of us that means some kind of vacation is just around the corner. For Travis and I that meant our first week long family cruise. After overpacking for our ski trips this past winter (I probably wore about one third of what I brought with me) [...]

A few months ago I posted about simplifying my wardrobe. Using the Marie Kondo method, I laid out all of my clothes on the bed and eliminated about ⅓ of what I currently had. I donated these if they were in good condition, and threw them out if they could not be reused. [...]
This past Christmas my husband bought me Joanna Gaines’ book Home Body. After looking at all of the beautiful rooms that she had designed I was motivated to change up some things in our home. I drove out to the nearest Home Goods, pulled into the parking lot and then quickly remembered my goal [...]
