Read Part 1 here.  So let’s catch up and go back to April 2015 where our new little family has just been discharged from hospital – eeek!

The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}

I am all about inspiration. It’s something that comes quite easily to me; however, moving to the implementation stage is often a different story. It pains me to say it but I suppose you would not consider me to be much of a completer finisher. I get ideas, get totally excited and go two feetContinue reading “The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}”

Project {Simplify}

Truth be told I’ve had a version of this blog post in my head for probably close to 2 years now. It started when I was pregnant with Penny and had an overwhelming desire to declutter {hello nesting}.
