We have some big plans for our yard and lots of projects on our to-do list, but the foundation for all of them is pretty much the same - fix our soil. If you've been following me on Instagram, then you've already seen what we're dealing with. We have lots of sandy dirt toward the [...]

As we continue our yard projects, I realize we're embracing permaculture as we're building up the garden and general layout. It's difficult to summarize, but I see it as a design process that attempts to mimic nature and build around systems instead of just looking at individual components. It's usually associated with yard/garden design, but it's more [...]

Stumped by which kinds of trees are in your yard? Here some tips to help quickly identify any unknown tree! This year is about about trees - learning about them, tending to them, pruning a few, and in some  cases, chopping them. Our yard is packed with trees.

What Keeps You Up at Night?

Last week we had a financial check-up. Between buying the house, some family things that have popped up, and other stuff going on, we knew it would be good to get a third pair of eyes to look over some things. As with most financial reviews, we went over our numbers - our savings, investments, [...]

As I'm going through Joshua Becker's Uncluttered course,  I'm seeing firsthand the benefits of simplifying and removing excess around the house. Last week we had cleaned out one of the most cluttered, overstuffed rooms in the house - our kids'. Long story short, cleaning up was stressful for everyone. Our oldest daughter was overwhelmed by everything [...]

Simplifying your finances can be incredibly fulfilling and powerful. Not joking. When you simplify your finances (and your life), you can gain so much more than positive cash flow. You also gain: More Options: We don't have control over most things, but if you've simplified your life, you tend to give yourself more options. Laid off [...]

We're DEBT FREE!!! Sorta. Looking at our savings we have enough to pay off the last student, BUT.... we'd barely have any savings left. While it would be fantastic to cross off this item, the right decision for us is to hold off on sending that huge payment in. Sounds crazy, but it's the best decision [...]

Uncluttered Course Review

One of my big goals for the year is simplifying around our house. Besides finding ways to cut down on the routines, I'm also looking at removing the clutter, stuff, and let's call it what it is - the junk- that's taking up space. I'm tired of having it around and  I don't want it distracting [...]

How We Decided On Our Home

After two months at our new house, we're still excited about buying it. We love living her and we're happy with how well it fits. While the actual process of going from seeing houses to signing the papers seemed fairly quick, the process that got us to the point took much longer. I know this is [...]
