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.
I had different intentions for today's post, but it lead me here. Over the weekend I had to reassess boundaries; not just with my ex but life in general. On Memorial Day every year, Crossfit gyms across the country do "Murph:" "Murph” is a CrossFit Hero WOD (Workout Of the Day) named after Navy Lieutenant … Continue reading Reset.
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.

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.
I've been thinking a lot about boundaries. Even since my cousin passed away in mid December (and then my grandmother in January), I let go of most boundaries with my children's father. I was pretty much a hot mess. I needed all the help I could get and I am very grateful that he was … Continue reading Boundaries.
I have to say, this no spend month went south in most areas the second week in.Not only did our stimulus money come in, I ran out of a few things. There were a few of purchases that I had not planned. Two of them were vitamins; vitamin D and my B-complex. I didn't realized … Continue reading No Spend Month [Halfway Update].
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.
