I’ve gotten a handful of requests to share what the holidays look like for me now, since adopting this mindful/minimalist lifestyle. These are the same requests I have gotten every year, for the past four years. And every year, I sit down and attempt to write something helpful and meaningful, but it never feels quite ...

Well, friends . . . today’s post is a special one. There aren’t many times in your life that you’re able to announce your book is available for pre-order. In fact, there is only one time that you’re able to announce your first book is available for pre-order. Today is that day for me, and ...

Hello, friends—and hello, December! It’s hard to believe that my year of slow living experiments is almost over. It started with the slow morning experiment in January, where I allowed myself to wake up naturally and have a slow, quiet morning before the start of each day. Slow mornings are something I have managed to ...

This is a guest post from my friend Rachel. I was going to wait until next week to share it, but already get the sense that people are stressed with end-of-year commitments + the holidays. I hope her message helps. <3 I haven’t been bored since 2009. And that’s not a good thing. I’m a ...

This is a guest post from my friend Jillian. It dawned on me, recently, that I don’t think I’ve ever had a guest post about family. Jillian is changing that in a BIG and meaningful way. I never searched out minimalism. Rather, I stumbled upon it first as a type of survival tool. Our story ...

Hello, friends! It’s that time of year again! The Mindful Budgeting 2018 Planners are ready! :) If you remember, I had originally decided not to do another planner this year. The list of reasons why aren’t particularly important (as many were likely stemmed from anxiety). But thanks to your requests + some help from current ...

I’ve been thinking a lot about home this week, and how my definition—and physical location—of it has changed over the years. My story is certainly not liner. When I was a kid, my mom and I were constantly on the move. As an adult, I’ve lived in Victoria, Toronto, Victoria again, Toronto again, New West ...

This is the final guest post for slow travel week. I think you’ll appreciate Ash’s thoughts. I had walked past the book several times in the bookstore, eyeing its red cover up and down, but ultimately couldn’t convince my minimalist-inclined heart to add yet another book to my already full bookshelf. The book I am ...

Another thoughtful guest post for slow travel week! This one is from my friend Amanda. Travel has been part of my life since I was nine years old, when my parents packed us up for a six-month motorhome trip around Europe. Thanks to Australia’s long service leave provisions, my dad could take six months off ...

My first trip to New York City was a blur. It was December 2012 and I had recently decided to give up on the idea that sobriety was right for me. Sobriety was not right for me. I wanted to drink. We spent our nights bar hopping and, I, getting blackout drunk, and we spent our ...
