Blogging Goals for 2018

January 3, 2018
2018 is well under way and so are my goals for the blog.

This past year has been a whirlwind. Between moving cross-country, getting settled, and getting married, I feel very fortunate. This blog has been the latest project that has turned my life upside down and cost me a few hours of Zzz’s. It’s not one of those stressful I’m-up-all-night-worried things though, it’s more of a black hole of Youtube how-to’s and googling. It’s really fun for me to write for you guys and learn something new in the process. It’s honestly mind-boggling how much there is to learn about this blogging world!

Luckily for me, starting so close to the end of the year leaves all of 2018 to learn and grow some more! So let’s get started with the word on everyone’s lips this time of year: GOALS.  Continue Reading

We even planned our wedding to be in Washington before we knew if we’d be living there with the hopes that we would be by the time it came around. Luckily it all worked out – proof that hard work and positive thinking can make it happen! Continue Reading

The Minimalism Game Roundup: Week 5

December 3, 2017

Since I started the 30 Day Minimalism Game, I wanted to do weekly recaps so you could follow along and also share any struggles or triumphs I had along the way of my minimalism challenge. You can check out last week’s huge 175 item haul here. Yes, I know in the rules it states that you must get rid of the items that same day. But I wanted to do a weekly round up for you guys to see what minimizing looks like and how easy it is. I think it would be more efficient (I didn’t want to make daily trips to Salvation Army) and impactful (all these items at once gives a “wow” factor) to see one large collection each week. Please forgive my rebellious ways ;-). Continue Reading

November 26, 2017
Join me on my fourth week of The Minimalists "Minimalism Game". See what I got rid of and how you can too!

Since I started the 30 Day Minimalism Game, I wanted to do weekly recaps so you could follow along and also share any struggles or triumphs I had along the way of my minimalism challenge. You can check out my first second, and third weeks here. Yes, I know in the rules it states that you must get rid of the items that same day.
