Can we talk about this year?? I mean, of course there’s so much we all can nod our heads about because we are all in this together. Apart. I said to a friend yesterday (referencing how interconnected all our choices are, especially right now in the midst of a global pandemic in which we’re all… Read More HOLY 2020.
William Morris MondaysOne of my resolutions is to tackle the basement storage, which is in stasis since we moved in. I started by making sure the Christmas stuff we put away was organized and decluttered, and on a shelf by itself, so I can tell it’s “done”. Now, I’m tackling the gift bag/wrap collection. I… Read More Week One/Jan 10 2020
Happy New Year! I make resolutions. I think I do this because I like projects. I want things to get better and I want me to get better, at least, at what’s important to me. It’s not about viewing myself as flawed, but about focusing on the things that matter, so that my time and… Read More Practice Makes Progress
For our recent family photos, I dragged the second clothing rack (the first replaced a busted coat rack in our laundry/mud room out of necessity) to our bedroom to set aside our outfits. Once that was no longer needed, I decided the best use would be to schlep the rack to the main level and… Read More Outerwear Purge/Wear
Next up: our coats. But it’s necessary — a recent high of 63F became the next day’s low of 12F. We went back to 67, and are on our way to low 30s.Winter is coming. Nay; winter is here. So, for now, shoes.If you need a reminder, this is what I’ve said about my shoes… Read More Shoes.
Yesterday, I did a thing. I took everything out of my closet and hung up the things I am 100% sure I like and want to wear. I didn’t count them, or plan outfits, or try anything on — I know what works pretty well at this point. Here’s what I ended up with. I… Read More Back to the Capsule (Wardrobe)
I don’t even know how this happens. The first part of this year crawled. Then June hit and I don’t even understand how it’s October 7th. Life @ Home – I am still home with the kids (and still have no plans to change that immediately). I have made precious little progress on any of… Read More How is it October?
I have been a full-time stay-at-home mama for a little over one month now. Mostly, I love it. I was home part-time (T/Th usually) from the time the twins were born, and have had periods of time at home with them when childcare was unavailable for a block of time, so it feels like more… Read More All at Once/September
March 29, 2019. That was my most recent post before today. I do this frequently: I try to create a pattern of posting and life gets in the way and I can’t post the way I want to so I don’t post at all, and then the inability to post what I wanted to post… Read More Brain Dump / July 2019
I think this is the last of the winter-y posts before I start posting spring outfits (which, due to continued cool weather, look mostly the same so far), but I wanted to explore my additions and financial-goal progress before I switch into my warm-weather posts a bit. What I Added December 2018 through March 2019… Read More Dec-Mar Purchasing + Budget Update
