I can be such a paper geek. There is just something about pretty paper, printed text, beautiful design. While you cannot tell a book by it’s cover, it sure will make me pick up a book and feel the need to hold it and flip through it. For this reason, I only read books I can hold in my hand. No Kindle for me…not yet anyways.
It’s no surprise that using and creating printables appeals to me. I have created a Christmas carol printable for you.
A workspace, completed with a cup of coffee. I think the mug of coffee is the main appeal. And that picture is why I blog. Whenever I see a picture of that mug of coffee sitting on the desk I think, that can be me. I can get up at the crack of dawn on a beautiful morning, enjoy the peace and quiet, gaze out the window, coffee in hand, and blog away. I may even snap my own coffee cup picture. The wrong motivation to blog, you say? Yes, but the picture still gets me every time. And so here I am, starting my own blog.
If you happen upon my page every morning, you will not see this daily picture. I won’t bore you with my workspace (as of now, it’s not pretty).
My name is Emily and I live with my husband and two darling daughters. I am striving to find balance in being a wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, neighbor, child of God. And also keeper of the home, money manager, grocery shopper, deal-finder, runner, fitness-lover, sweets-maker, reader, declutterer, somewhat quasi-striving minimalist.
Please follow me as I seek to be intentional with how I’m spending my time and money. I would love to have you join me. Feel free to give advice, seek advice, join in my challenges, start a conversation, join in the conversation, or just read along.
