“Like I said before, as a mother the idea of having a warm drink or minute to myself to enjoy it has become a precious commodity. It's inevitable that we have those 'multiple cups of coffee necessary' kinds of days, so I was happy to have a little space to organize and enjoy it when they do occur.”
"Just like other situations in my life from the past, I was holding on to a lot of things just because they were what I knew and felt comfortable being around - just in case. I was overwhelmed with the idea of going through them all, analyzing their uses and facing the idea of parting with them. But if I held on to these items I wouldn't have space for new, beautiful things to come in; there were so many objects from the past I was holding on to, physical things this time, that had absolutely no place in my life now."
"A little bit of work yes, but I love not only a mom hack but also a challenge. The coolest part is that you have a piece that is 100%, without a doubt unique and yours, and that your hard work and effort created it! Kind of like your kid, but without all the whining (jokes people, jokes!)."

"Bougie (adj.): Anything that is perceived as "upscale" from a blue-collar point of view; a hacked truncation of the word Bourgeoisie, which refers to the middle-class in Europe, but a more affluent class level in North America."
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."
"Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start…."
