Don't add just a little more

This holiday season, my decorations are just killing me, in the very best of ways! I honestly questioned if I should even share them on social media, because in the wake of home tours, I know mine come out looking on the boring side...  I think my mantra has been a constant hum of "don't add just a little more."  (I can honestly say that has probably never been at the foreground of my mind, this time of year and I don't see much of that attitude splashed all over IG either!)  However, I've never felt more at peace, more myself and more calm in my spirt, so you can't tell me there isn't a direct connection!  

Raise your hand if you love what minimalism is doing in your life! 

I think before, I'd always think I needed to add greenery to this, more ornaments to that, another candle here, some "thing" more there.  This year, true simplicity is giving way to breathing room unlike any I've actually experienced during this season.  

I don't have a ton of words today, just a few photos that show this in action.  Please, welcome in, and enjoy the simplicity and rest alongside me.

  2. Peaceful!
    I just watched one of the homes on a tour and I couldn’t scroll quick enough because it was just to much for my eyes to handle!
    Your home is as I said “peaceful” to the eyes!!!

  3. Love this journey you are sharing :-)
    I recognize similar feelings in my self, although I am not so minimalist, I definitely sense a paring down of things... and less interest in the busy-ness in every area. I am inspired to take your tips and journey and apply them in my life as best fits my own style and journey- it is truly freeing. Thanks for sharing- your sweet sharing is so fun and it is truly inspiring in the most positive way... not the comparison trap so much of social media makes us feel. Your sharing is like a friend having success and making me want to try, too!

    1. And can you tell I need some sleep? I think I said "sharing" twelve times- haha!

    2. Oh thank YOU!! That is one of the nicest compliments. I love that we are all on a journey at our own pace, but can encourage one another... and SHARE. (wink.) You're sweet.

  4. While I am not by an stretch of the imagination a minimalist, I love watching how you continue to create a place of comfort and warmth for your family. I have definitely been in the mode of "too much stuff is suffocating me" for the past year and am slowly paring down. Thank you for sharing your home with us and for inspiring me.
