About Me

Hi, I’m Danielle!

I’m so glad you are here! I am a former elementary teacher now at home with my sweet son and daughter and married to my amazing husband. I love and follow Jesus. My other loves include a cup of (good) coffee, anywhere with mountains, dark chocolate, a diverse music playlist, a long walk outside, a good book, a thrifty find, and getting rid of clutter!

In this season, I am learning that being known as “Mama” is a beautiful and refining calling. Even BEFORE motherhood, I struggled with feeling stressed and overwhelmed by life. In this new season of motherhood and working from home and cooking meals and all the things…life never seems to slow down!

In the highs and lows of life, I find myself yearning for more than just finishing my to do list or wishing away the season I’m in. I desire more gratitude, contentment, time, and intentionality with people and in my own life.

This blog is for the mom who may consider herself, or want to be more, of having a “frugal minimalist” mindset- with a longing to live more simply and intentionally with her people, home, and time- and with an eye on her wallet too.

This blog is for moms who are looking to live life more simply, intentionally, and frugally with less stuff and clutter in order to get to the heart of who they were meant to be.

Stewardship is a big word but it’s one that is near and dear to my heart. As humans, women, and mamas too, we are all called to be wise stewards of what we have. This includes our money, time, space, belongings, and those little (and big) people entrusted to us to love and nurture.

I want to help you live with less, spend less, and use your time well. I’m not perfect in this process and I make plenty of mistakes, but I hope that as I share what I’ve learned so far – you will share your own growth as well.

I’m glad you’re here. Thank you for joining me in my journey towards living a simple and settled life!

Love, D
