It's been about quite some time of self work. I've gone from separated in late 2018, to attempting to retry again during the pandemic to separated again in summer 2020 to filing for divorce at the end of 2020 to finally becoming a divorced, single mom and home owner in early 2021. What a whirlwind. … Continue reading Self Work.
So far summer has been it's been off to a great start. I've taken my kiddos to the pool at work (which is a fabulous perk).Having three on my own, the kiddie pool (2ft) is the only thing I can do with them. There is also a playground next to the pool so we have … Continue reading Summer So Far.
It's been a minute since I've done a favorites post; we're talking last year April. Now that I am not on a "diet plan," I have a bit more room in my "diet" for processed things. Again, I loved my experience with my coach. But for me, as a mom of three (and coffee lover), … Continue reading Current Favorites.
A few weeks ago I mentioned in a post that I got rid of my queen bed. While it did remind me of my ex-husband, it just didn't fit me. When I was younger and we moved into my "childhood" home, my mom bought me a day bed. I think I was used to that … Continue reading Redefining My Minimalist Home.
It hit me the other day... All this "being busy" that I threw myself into post divorce literally goes against who I am. As a minimalist, I try to focus on intentional living and not flooding my calendar. It's important to rest, recharge and reset. For almost a month I have done absolutely none of … Continue reading Slowing Down.

Last week, I took my three kiddos hiking at the Andres Institute of Art all on my own. I packed my bag, got my hiking boots on and dressed them up as warm as possible.It's a really great hiking spot for the kiddos because they get to see some pretty sweet art sculptures. It just makes it … Continue reading Hiking.
When I was about to have my first, the thought of being a stay at home mom was awful. But the thought of being a full-time working mom was awful too. I knew both "full-time" roles weren't for me - I wanted to do both part-time. With my first, I went back to work at … Continue reading Life As A Stay At Home Mom.
Welcome to the Minimalist[ish] Coffee Mom.This has been a thought in my mind since September of last year. After I took the Simple Habits course and changing the focus of my blog, I've been debating on changing my name. I didn't want to just put Minimalist Coffee Mom because I really resonate with the "ish" … Continue reading Minimalist[ish] Coffee Mom.
The new documentary film Less is Now, is finally out on Netflix. If you would have told me that I'd be outside for a hike in January, I would have laughed in your face. No really, I would have.I was one to take the kids to the library, indoor park and so forth. But you'd … Continue reading Less Is NOW.
