Expanding My Business: New Ways to Work with Me

Ch-ch-ch-changes. Change can feel hard and vulnerable and complicated (but also exciting and inspiring!). After well over a decade of organizing homes all over the country, I’ve decided to pivot and expand my business so I can help more people in more ways, and also stretch myself creatively. I’ve never wanted to grow a large […]

Why You Should Try a “No New Things Challenge”

My colleague and new friend Ashlee Piper went a full year without buying new things. A full year! A sustainability expert and author, Ashlee started practicing the #NoNewThings challenge because it aligned with her mission to live more sustainably. In the process she also clarified her priorities, reclaimed loads of time, lost weight, and saved […]

Fewer Better: Summer Favorites

And just like that, it’s suddenly summer! To be honest, summer has never been my favorite season, (I’m more of a spring/autumn person) but this one is gearing up to be a good one. The girls are off to sleep-away camp, we’re planning our first family trip to Rome, and I’m working on wrapping up […]

5 Things I Realized I Could Live Without

How to Maintain a Minimalist Home – with Pets!

Everyone in my life (including me) was shocked when they learned I had broken down and agreed to get a puppy for my girls. One thing I was clear about was that owning a dog didn’t mean my house had to transform into a war zone littered with chew toys, dog beds, and other pet […]

My 5-Minute Minimalist Beauty Routine

Even for those of us who are primarily working from home, I believe it’s important to get dressed and put a little effort into how we look and feel each day- not for others, just for ourselves. For the most part, I’ve been a soap and water kind of girl my whole life. I have […]

What Minimalism Is and Isn’t

I have built my business (and entire life) around the concept of doing, and having, less, but better. My philosophy has been informed and inspired by the minimalist movement and ethos, however, as a busy working mom who happens to love pretty things, I have customized a minimalist philosophy that works for my real life.
