I wouldn't say that I was ever SUPER organized, even before kids. But I did, at the very least, manage not to miss appointments or show up 20 minutes late to everything. I remembered to call my mom and...
I've suffered from depression on and off for probably seven years.  I think it started after my daughter was born.  I was a stay-at-home mom with no friends around.  My closest friends and sister lived out of state.  We...
As fall brings cooler weather, I realize that my kids’ coats and shoes are completely out of control. The haphazard pile of cold weather necessities is taking over my house. You see, there is no coat closet at the door...
So much of our waking lives are spent in digital space - on our phones, computers and other devices - yet how often do we "clean" these areas? My motivation for cleaning and organizing my home ring true online and...
Three years ago, I gave birth to a precious baby girl, which has provided me with the opportunity to finally shop in the ninety percent of the store that is dedicated to the color pink. For years, I dreamed...
I am not on board with Marie Kondo, and minimalism is definitely not my thing. Don't even talk to me about a new way to fold.  I am a maximalist, and I want table lamps, extra pillows, snuggly blankets, houseplants,...

Early spring is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. Just when the winter blues have tried to suffocate me, I notice the buds swelling on tree limbs, colors of wildflowers bursting through the snow like a...
Except for two standard-length maternity leaves, I have worked outside the home throughout my motherhood tenure. In the wake of school closures in mid-March and the ensuing “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order, my kids and I, like most parents...
I disliked our entryway since the first time we looked at the house.  My husband and the Realtor convinced me we could make changes to it.  I can't even remember what those suggestions were because they never actually happened....
The drive to simplify has become a national phenomenon in response to our national consumer excesses. Instead of buying more and needing more, there has been an upswing in the popularity of simplicity. Whether this is overall minimalism or...
