31-Day Countdown to Simplicity Vs. | blog series

Receive the Simplicity Vs. ebook + workbook free October 31 only!

It seems we're all on a journey to get our lives together. It's why we get distracted with "helpful" articles on Facebook; it's why we pin all the "helpful" tips on Pinterest; and it's why we have endless goals and to-do lists to "help" us get to where we want to be--at peace and content with our lives.

Ready for the secret to getting your life together? It's simple...

Getting your life together starts in the home.

I know, that's a little anti-climatic. But it's true. A better work life, a healthier body, a soul at peace--it all starts right here at home. Or, for you it's right there in your home.

And that's just the premise behind the resources I'm putting together for you. Remember Simplifying Home? It's a blog series that includes an 8-week checklist going through every area of the home to make it more simple, making our lives more intentional and content along the way.

Well, I'm expanding it. Putting together encouraging words for when simplifying is not easy or natural, and printable pages for simplifying home. Not just for a more organized home, but for a more put-together and at-peace life. Which is what we all really want anyway, right?

Best part: I'm sending the ebook + workbook to my e-mail subscribers for free download on October 31!

Throughout October, we're counting down to it's release with 5-minutes-a-day of pinnable quotes from the book, printable pages from the workbook, and more! In the meantime, make sure you're signed up for the e-mail list (below), and spread the word or join the conversation with #SimplicityVs. All are welcome.

I can't wait to share this with you!

Friday Update // 31 Days

Simplicity Vs. ebook + workbook coming soon!

I heart planning. It's probably the primary reason I do the 31-day series in October. I can't not do it. Sure the writing is good, but the planning. Oh, the planning! It's my favorite part.

Earlier this month when I shared my latest "epic 31-day series plan" with my husband, he made an observation (probably around the point his eyes were glazing over): "You're a really good planner. You should just tell people how to plan."

He might have been teasing me... just a little. But the truth is I really wouldn't know how to tell you how to plan, because it just comes natural for me. So, Daniel went ahead and listed the steps he's seen me take:
  1. Make a plan.
  2. Use the word "epic" a lot.
  3. Tell someone all about your plan in great detail; make sure to point out how epic it's going to be.
  4. Do the plan (optional).
  5. Plan some more!
So, that's what I've been up to this last month. Sure, there's been a little writing and designing, putting plans into motion, learning about our new essential oils, settling into our new home, and enjoying family. But there's also been a lot of sweet, indulgent planning.

The plans include:
