Now I know better
I had two (beautiful, wonderful) children, + still I pressed on at a punishing pace:
I vacuumed the house with an infant strapped to my chest while picking up my toddler’s discarded, forgotten toys.
I hosted playdates while preparing dinner for my family.
I was forever playing catch-up; forever behind.
I thought that being busy meant I was doing it right. I assumed adulthood was supposed to be this way.
IIt wasn’t until one afternoon, as I stuffed a pacifier in one kid’s mouth, sang to the other, scarfed down a half-eaten granola bar + sped through a yellow light that I realized
there's got to be a better way
This movement is all about
Decluttering home, head + heart through incremental changes.
Finding peace, not in “stuff”, but in simplicity.
Cutting through the clutter as a means to fully enjoy life's moments, both big + small.
Committing to conscious consumerism + sustainable living.
I’m all about
Giving gifts wrapped in wrinkled tissue paper (it’s reused!).
Being the best mom I can be by working smarter, not harder.
Helping others find their own happy place by organizing, purging, donating, + decluttering.
Finding humor in the mundane + writing it down.
More about me
I am a slightly better-than-average marathoner.

I am embarrassingly obsessed with my yellow Labrador Retriever, Lucy.
I taught English Literature to high schoolers for nearly a decade.
When the weather gets chilly, you can find me knitting.
I'm happiest outdoors.
