New Projects

I fought tooth and nail to convince my parents to send me to piano lessons. When they finally conceded, I was very motivated and diligent, practicing many hours a week before my Monday lesson. But eventually, I became more interested in learning popular and folk songs rather than the mechanics of scales, chord progressions, and… [Read More]

30 Day Clothing Spending Fast

Good morning! I’m writing to you today from the sunny east coast in Maryland this morning. I’m here on business, but it is one of my favorite places to travel. When I have a few (very few) spare moments, I like to enjoy the backroads surrounding the (many, and circular?) highways that wind through old… [Read More]

Scaling Down Time Commitments: The Final Tidying Frontier?

I know it’s been FOREVER since I released a blog post, so I apologize for the hiatus and the more-than-likely informality of this post.

Creating a Minimalist Pantry

My latest tidying project involved finally tackling my pantry… It has been through many phases of “organized”, but I started fresh with a new goal in mind: simplifying my dietary choices, streamlining my meal prep/cooking each week, and keeping track of what I really enjoyed eating and what didn’t make the cut. My strategy is… [Read More]

My Laughing Heart

As I journaled through my thoughts this morning, it became clear that a ray of sunshine has parted the clouds of the last few months. God has poured out blessings and abundance into my life, such abundance I couldn’t have imagined as I scaled down again and again the amount of “things” in my life. Creating… [Read More]

The Ongoing Magic Of Tidying Up

It seems as though there is one flaw in all the minimalist writings I have stumbled upon: the lack of emphasis on the ongoing nature of the minimalist lifestyle. I’m not even sure I like using the words “minimalist lifestyle” because it implies I’ve joined some sort of cult. Okay, maybe I have. In that case, I counter… [Read More]

Finding Peace

Meditation Mount in Ojai, California It’s been over 3 months since I’ve made use of any sort of social media platform.  That sentence is the first thought I’ve given it since I decided to give it up.  It’s strange to think that a year ago this Lent, giving up social media was a real struggle… [Read More]

A Dying Ember: New Years Burnout

Good afternoon y’all! I know, not my regular posting schedule. And how is it January 17th and this is my first post in the New Year? Well, life. By January 15th, 75% of Americans have failed to uphold their New Years Resolutions. It’s January 17th, and can I be honest? I’m burned out. Am I… [Read More]
