Embracing imperfection is hard.
Today I sent my subscriber newsletter out with my personal email as the subject.
How it got there? Who knows.
But I do know that striving for perfection is a sure 🔥 path to shame, fear, and insecurity.
Perfection is an illusion. It steals our confidence by holding the bar higher than we could ever reach.
I'm digging into vulnerability today because, well- it's the only way I'll quiet the voices in my head telling me I'm no good, unworthy, stupid, and unprofessional.
When I allow vulnerability, I receive grace. I receive truth.
Today, I am imperfect. I will be tomorrow too.
But I am loved unconditionally. I am still a child of God.
If you struggle with perfectionism or self-shaming when things don't go right I encourage you to wrap your arms around yourself and embrace all the imperfections.
They don't define you.
They are holes from which your light shines.
Here's to shining a little brighter today. ❤️
Simple living restores who we are when we aren’t covered up, buried under, overwhelmed by, or consumed with all the clutter of this world.
Soul Living restores our union with God by breaking off distraction, self-destruction, and legalism and claiming the riches of his blessings through Jesus Christ, which can’t be bought or hoarded or organized.
Simplifying rejects the message of the world and suddenly we notice we stand a little taller, care a little less about what others say about us, find contentment in the things we have, need less to live comfortably, compare less, commune more with friends and family and God, and we feel an incomparable freedom to stop hiding and start thriving.
Simple living transforms us in ways that
new fashion can’t,
a new car can’t,
the next promotion won’t,
keeping up with the Joneses isn’t,
accumulating excess hasn’t,
and the standards of success and beauty never will.
Learning to stand tall. At first I didn't love this vase. The color isn't my go-to, the silhouette perhaps too 70's – it didn't speak to me. I rediscovered it this past weekend while shooting and uncovered a new beauty in it. Discover it more with link in my bio.
This canvas & WWII era leather weekender really is the perfect size for just that, the weekend. It fit right into the dreamy, clawfoot tub & vintage decor filled rooms at the @urbancowboybnb in Nashville. Weekend, I need you back!
Two canvas weekenders are in stock in the web shop 🙌🏻
We are on a "why didn't we do this seven years ago" roll when it comes to home "renovations" these days. Can you spot the differences?
1. The picture frame kept falling off the wall and breaking, so we moved our @lisa.riehl "Waiting" over.
2. I cleaned, plastered and painted the walls, they were quite dinged up.
3. The vent! After six years it occurred to me to measure it ... It fits a standard floor vent cover. $16 later and two cuts into the baseboard ... Dur.
4. We had @tr0utz husband wire an outlet into the water closet where our modem and router live - no more unsightly wires into the main room through the wall.
5. I purchased blank face plates for the outlets that used to house coaxial and audio receiver stuffs. We never used either and now they are baby safe and much less visually cluttered.
We also had the angled window installed 11 months ago, @adam.ryanjames installed a shower set up in our claw foot tub this spring, we gifted ourselves a new hot tub cover with lifter bar for my birthday/Fathers Day, and our deck will finally get stained (by my husband) while I take the boys on a cross-country trip.
Small inexpensive changes that make such a difference! I love this little house ❤️ #homesteading#homestead#minimalisthome#minimalisthouse#minimalistfamily#visualclutter#unclutter#diyhome#smallhouse#smallhome#simplehome#cohesivehome#slowhome
Say it with me: I will not waste one more day spending the currency of a culture that has nothing to offer me.
Say it again.
Say it many times you need to until it changes you.
This quote is on repeat today in my mind, because I want to be a woman that values meaning, connection, love, and freedom.
I want to invest in those life-giving things, not on that which is meant to steal my joy.
I wish that for you as well. ❤️😊 @sniequist
Okay, one more because yesterday evening was just too beautiful.
The lovely & delicious cake by the sweetest Susannah at @oldworldlevain and these vintage amber glasses that I collected over the years in both Michigan and North Carolina (which were finally given the use they deserve at my dear friends wedding celebration). This all makes my heart so happy.
SEASON 3 IS HERE!! 🕺 We had so much fun looking back over 5 years of minimalism and chatting about what we would do differently, what we love about minimalism, and how it has changed our lives.

Jestem kobietą o dwóch lewych rękach w kuchni i jednej prawej, w której stałe trzymam aparat. Wczoraj odwiedziła mnie @veganama_ i chciałam ją ugościć zimną wodą w dzbanku. Zimna miała być od mrożonych owoców, których tam nawrzucałam, bo kostek lodu, oczywiscie, nie miałam. Wyszedl mi z tego płyn w smaku iście okropny, z dziwnym osadem pływającym po tafli 😂😂😂😂 wypiłam więc sama, a Marcie dałam coś czego nie można spieprzyć - zieloną hebratę, moją specjalność 😂😂😂 wodę z owocami tylko obfotografowałam, bo tak ładnie dumnie rumiana stała na stole. I proszę - oto moje małe kłamstwo instagramowe, które pozwalam sobie odczarować tym komentarzem. Dobrego dnia! Chętnie poczytam o Waszych wpadkach kulinarnych!

One day, when I had had enough of everything, I knew something big had to change. I was tired of all the stuff that cluttered my home and calendar and heart. I wasn’t content with my life, which felt ridiculous considering ALL.THE.STUFF. Minimalism seemed like the next best thing to try.
For me, decluttering my home, slowing down our activities, and choosing intentional ways of living peeled away the layers revealing my very soul. I felt exposed, in a good way, for the first time. I felt I was free to be me.
No more comparisons, no more expectations, no more busy – just me. I was enough. Finally.
Within that journey to becoming myself again, I discovered that when I felt the pull of life drawing me back into wants and false needs, it was gratitude that would ground me back in my simple life.
The shortest path to simplicity is gratitude, friends.
Gratitude can: – Redefine enough – Change your perspective – Humble you – Heal your brokenness – Empower your prayer life – Deepen your relationships – Become a weapon against the thieves of joy – Support a simple life in a complicated world
Gratitude changes everything. When gratitude is the filter through which we view our things, loved ones, and seasons of life we become love. We become the best version of ourselves because we are no longer concerned with what we get out life, but what we give back.

Back in the office today, shipping out all your orders from this past week and asking myself why vacationing with babies always makes you feel like you need a nap when it's over. Anyone else? 😴
