Minimal Gift-Giving

12.22.2020 instagram

In a video I posted about three years ago, I explained how I don’t give gifts to my children on Christmas day. 😮😄 It’s true! Joe and I stopped giving gifts to our children and each other twenty-three years ago. I always remember the year because our twenty-three-year-old daughter was born a month before that Christmas. Everything felt so commercialized and I had turned our holiday into an advertisement out of a catalog that Christmas morning. And rather than beRead More

2020 Family Photo

We went from 8 rooms to 4, which includes 2 bedrooms and even Joe agreed this is way less stressful for us. Less is more. 😊 I explained our future plans in my last video so if you’re interested, head on over. I adorned our new fireplaceRead More

Slow Sunday

09.27.2020 day in the life

The site is back. 🥰 I’m dusting off the cobwebs and working on getting this place organized. Organizing is one of my favorite things to do because it always involves minimizing. Another favorite is admiring the space once it’s complete. Yes, even more than building a chicken coop. Today is Sunday and that means “family day.” The older ones don’t all live with us anymore so this day has become extra special when they visit. And lately my three middleRead More
