As a happy minimalist, I don't keep much memorabilia by choice. I'm not a heartless robot - I just appreciate things/objects as they happen in the present moment and don't tend to hold onto many things…Read More
For those of you who have been following my blog for the past few years, y'all know I've chosen a word that drives my decisions for the year. Doing so has become a powerful way to incorporate a concept/idea/way of thinking into how I go about living/being/doing/supporting/thriving…Read More
