Clutter affects men and women differently—here’s why

When I first began pursuing minimalism about a year and a half ago, I distinctly remember a time when I had returned from the grocery store to a solid surprise.

How to share the mental workload of motherhood

I NEED TO ESCAPE MY LIFE. I literally said this the other day in a huff as I ran past my mom while gathering water bottles, snacks, shoes, sunscreen, hats, a check to deposit at the bank, plus 3 packages to return to UPS…and crap, I thought, I need to call the insurance company. My […]

If family gatherings are stressful—here’s what to do

Growing up, holiday parties were always big family affairs. I have a large extended family, with a dozen aunts & uncles (and even more cousins).

3 Ways to Strengthen Your Marriage After Kids

Recently my husband and I went to Washington, D.C., for a work event through his company. It was extra special because we’d spent the first five (child-free) years of our marriage together in that city. As the plane descended and the Washington Monument came into view, I started to tear up. I will admit, I […]

Marriage is HARD. 8 Tips to Keep the Spark Alive (With Kids in Tow)

I won’t mince words here: marriage can be freaking HARD. Sure, in the beginning it’s easy to keep the spark alive while everything is still new and you don’t have little miniature humans running around. But throw parenting on top of marriage and it’s a million times harder … and often your spouse takes the […]
