So This Is It

So this is it. My 50s. Day 1. Now, I don't want to jinx it, but I have to say - so far, so good. I'm weirdly excited about this decade. My 30s were great, my 40s awesome. I can't wait to see what the 50s bring. To celebrate, I decided to take the day … Continue reading So This Is It

The Pro & Con of Shiny and New

I have an iPhone 6. It's just over 2 years old and according to my cell phone provider I am ready for an upgrade! Do I want/need an upgrade? Yes to the want, but need? Well, let's review: In the Pro column: The iPhone 7 has a superior camera and my phone is what I … Continue reading The Pro & Con of Shiny and New

The Winter 10×10 Challenge

I didn't get too much work done on curating my closet and developing outfit styles, etc. thanks to a winter storm that hit us overnight and dumped a ton of snow in our driveway. After shovelling out, I sat down and was perusing Instagram when I came across some people doing the #winter10x10 challenge. What this is, … Continue reading The Winter 10×10 Challenge

Stripping Down

In early December, I ordered The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in the hopes this book would (1) assist me in cleaning out my closet, and (2) give my style a bit of a reboot. I have a pretty good idea of what my style is, but my current wardrobe isn't quite matching up with … Continue reading Stripping Down

Putting It Down on Paper

I find I work best when I track things. Not just the things that need to be done, but also the tasks that have been completed. Or haven't been, as sometimes is the case. My preferred method for this is my bullet journal, which I use for daily tasks, monthly planning, appointments, to dos, tracking habits, etc. I check … Continue reading Putting It Down on Paper

The Road Ahead

Here we are ~ January, 2017. This isn't just any other new year for me either. In a few short weeks I hit the big 5-0 (when did that happen??). The sudden realization that I'm entering the second half of my life puts an odd urgency to things that wasn't there before. I want to get things done, things I've … Continue reading The Road Ahead

My Addiction

My name is Kelly and I'm a knitter. That's only partly true. I am a knitter. I have an Etsy shop and everything. But in the past two years I haven't had much time to knit, so in truth what I have become is a yarn hoarder. Because while I haven't been knitting much, I have continued … Continue reading My Addiction

Reflection

I think what I like best about this time of the year is having the last week of the month off from work and other obligations to sit and reflect. By now, I've had time to park my butt on my comfy couch, feet up and glass of wine in hand to stare at my Christmas … Continue reading Reflection

The Restructuring of Time

I have slowly come to realize over the past couple of years that I spend a fair bit of time trying to find more time to do the things I like that require a certain amount of time to do. Only to discover that, in the end, the 24-hour day is what it is and if … Continue reading The Restructuring of Time

Creating A Peaceful Haven

The bedroom renovations are complete and we have moved back in to our new, peaceful space. As much as I loved the crimson red, it was time for a change. The red no longer suited the mood I wanted for our bedroom and the rose carpet had never suited but finances did not allow for … Continue reading Creating A Peaceful Haven
