    Series Finale: What Will Your Intentional Holiday Season Look Like? A Recap and Reflection

    Series Finale: What Will Your Intentional Holiday Season Look Like? A Recap and Reflection

    Today we're recapping and reflecting on some of the main points of the last several episodes as we get specific on what matters most to us this holiday season, what we can plan for so we make sure it happens, create a yes and no list for the season, and make sure we're also taking care of ourselves.
    I hope this episode is one that allows you some time and gives you some ideas to really reflect on making this holiday season one that you and your family love.

    Making the Holidays Intentional and Special in a Low Pressure, Low Budget Way with Tasheena Ticer

    Making the Holidays Intentional and Special in a Low Pressure, Low Budget Way with Tasheena Ticer

    Warning: As with many holiday episodes, we are talking about gifts, the emphasis of gifts, and gifts under the tree. If this might be something you don't want your kids to hear, you may want to listen with earbuds in! :)
    Today's episode is full of ideas to make the holidays fun and special for our kids, but also intentional and enjoyable for the entire family. My guest, Tasheena Ticer of The Cinnamon Mom, brings us a look into her family's traditions and how she celebrates the holidays intentionally, making sure to bring both fun and meaning to the holiday season for her kids.
    Tasheena shares plenty of practical ideas that we can take and use this holiday season, but she also brings us some important reminders to be realistic about our own energy this holiday season, because the holidays aren't just for our kids. I know you'll take away many fun ideas from our conversation, but also sense of relief that we don't have to do it all, and we can make the holidays special with low pressure and a low budget.

    How to Hygge this Winter + Holiday Season with Diane in Denmark

    How to Hygge this Winter + Holiday Season with Diane in Denmark

    We are getting Hygge again on the show because it has been one of the most popular topics recently on minimal-ish, and I personally wanted to learn even more. This time, I went straight to the source: Denmark. I started following Diane in Denmark on her Youtube channel a while back, and I knew she was the perfect one to teach us how to Hygge our way through the winter and holiday season. We talk about several different ways to get through a long winter and to celebrate the season by actually planning Hygge into our days.

    Minimalism and Gifts This Holiday Season - Reflecting, Planning, and Mindset Shifts Around Our Gift Giving This Year

    Minimalism and Gifts This Holiday Season - Reflecting, Planning, and Mindset Shifts Around Our Gift Giving This Year

    How are you feeling about gifts this holiday season? Whether you're all about simplifying your gift giving (and receiving) for your family, or you just want to get more intentional and planned out, today's episode is for you!
    Gift giving and receiving can feel a little sticky when minimal-ish living is one of our values. The holiday season can be full of stress- stress on our budget, stress on our time, all because of the stuff. So, how do we realign the way we do gifts this holiday season with our values?
    Let's reflect, work on some mindset shifts together, talk about how we can talk to others about this all, and make a plan. Listen in!

    Decluttering Our Kids' Stuff Part 2 - Decluttering WITH our Kids

    Decluttering Our Kids' Stuff Part 2 - Decluttering WITH our Kids

    Today I'm bringing you part two of this series of what I've learned while decluttering with my daughter. I'm bringing you my process and what has made decluttering easier with my 5 year old as I've handed over the reigns of deciding what stuff to let go of and given her most of that choice.
    I also briefly talk about decluttering toddler things as well.
    I hope this episode helps you in some way when it comes to decluttering with your kids, even if they really feel attached to all of their things.
