Simplicity Still: Part Two

Earlier this week I shared how simplicity, my 2019 Word of the Year, had been a struggle in some areas. I’ve allowed myself grace in that what sounded great on paper at the beginning of the year, in theory wouldn’t always work.  I’ve made some edits to my action steps in order to better achieve my simplicity goal for the year.

Simplicity Still: Revisiting my Word of the Year

Remember way back in January when I told you this year instead of a resolution I was choosing a word to live by?  Yeah, I know it seems like forever ago. I challenged you to pick a word too. Did you?

Guatemala: A Perspective Shift

Guatemala... not somewhere you would probably think I would go. From what you’ve seen and heard on the news, you probably wouldn’t want to visit either.

My Current Amazon Cart

Your eyes are not deceiving you!  What was a huge fashion trend in the 90s is back and better than ever; the jean skirt.  The fact that it makes denim acceptable in lots of scenarios is a win, win and for those of us who aren’t a huge fan of denim shorts, it’s a great alternative.

Hustle: Part One

This is how Webster’s Dictionary defines hustle but I can’t say that I agree with every part of it.  While it may be busy movement and activity, I don’t think it is forceful; not in my case anyway.
