chasing slow

I’m currently reading Chasing Slow for the second time–it’s that good. I got my hands on an early copy this summer to read for endorsement but the timing was off and Chad and I were leaving for a big trip and I couldn’t finish it. I hated that I couldn’t get my endorsement finished in time–so here it is: READ THIS BOOK.  You probably already know Erin from her blog: Design for Mankind–she’s a stylist and lover of design who is so intentional about how she lives her life full of grace and quiet purpose. The perfect January read!




How to Monday


Happy Monday!

Aren’t Mondays the best and also worst? Often they come too quickly, and sometimes, because I love my work, I really look forward to Monday. After Sundaying it’s nice to get back into the swing of things.

Long ago I learned a Monday hack that I’ve continued to use.

NEVER schedule anything on a Monday.

No phone conference.

No hair appointments.

No coffee dates.

No course launch.

No ortho appointments for the boys.

No big grocery store shopping.

No thrifting (this is a Friday activity, duh)


As an INTJ/5w4 having an appointment on Monday absolutely ruins my Sunday, but mostly as a human, Monday represents my entire week and I want to jump in a get a few things done the way I need to do them without my schedule being the boss of me. In some ways Monday is the most powerful day when it comes to my work so I want to protect it the best I can.

Mondaying with you,

How to Give Your Home a Fresh Start Without Joy-Spark Testing Everything You Own


  My house and I are ready for a simpler time. Starting in the fall I find myself slowly adding in layers of coziness–a few extra pillows, magnolia leaves, an extra candle here and there and there, and by the time January rolls around, my surfaces are overflowing, and I kind of forget what my […]
