Hey All! Welcome to my blog!

As some of you may know, I used to blog at www.happierhealthiermorefitme.wordpress.com  but ended up giving it up because life just got too crazy! With a husband who works long hours, two young kids, a dog and a full time job, there just didn’t seem to be enough time. Fast forward a few years – and not much has changed…. life is still busy, but I’m hoping to discover a way to use what little free time I do have more effectively!!

It seems like when I finally get the chance to sit down with some of my girlfriends and chat, much of our conversations revolve around the dream of having a simpler life. We tend to put everyone else before ourselves and struggle with feeling the need to have our kids in all kinds of activities, the challenge of keeping a tidy house, and the pressure to make super healthy, home cooked meals every. day. of. the. week.

So, the goal of this blog is to document my journey of simplifying our life. I will share my successes and failures (I’m sure there will be many) as well as any tips and tricks I come across along the way! I’m hoping that this blog will serve as a bit of an accountability piece and a way to keep me motivated to stay on track!

I look forward to sharing my journey with you! Thanks for reading!

First blog postkeep life simple

September is the New January!!

So I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a teacher or just because so much changes at this time of year, but for me, September is the new January! September means the beginning of a new school year, new routines, and new challenges. A time for self evaluation and reflection, a time for setting new goals and really, a fresh start!


My plan over the next few days it to nail down some realistic and attainable goals to work towards over the school year. I need to focus on setting realistic timelines and set myself up for success. I need to remember that shit is not going to change overnight and that being consistent is key!!

Stay tuned to see what I’m working towards this year! Happy New Year!
