A Greater Appreciation…

This past year of 2019 has taught me a lot. I have learned how to be myself, how to deal with pain and how to slow down. I have become much more mindful of what I say, what I do and what is important to me. And even though I wasn’t physically able to hit... Continue Reading →

Where your story comes from matters…

Clearing out my closet & my past…

For the planner world, she's someone we have followed since she came out with her book a few years ago "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of decluttering and organizing. In my 2019 Goals, (which I... Continue Reading →
