One month into the new year already, how time flies! I hope that your year is off to a great start. Mine has been the age-old dance of one step forward, two steps back. And yet, I’m ever grateful for the opportunity to begin again. Every morning I wake up I’m grateful for another day of breathing, of hoping, of dreaming, of loving.
This winter has been exceptionally stormy. As much as California needs rain to help with the severe drought, I’ve found myself straddling the line between thankful and unhappy. The rain came hard and fast, unable to soak into the dehydrated landscape. In its wake the storms left behind damaging mudslides, fallen trees, people without power, and much water where there should not be. Our local dry creek bed hosted at least six feet of water. Hopefully the rain will continue through spring, in a gentler form.
“Attention is the most basic form of love. By paying attention we let ourselves be touched by life, and our hearts naturally become more open and engaged.”

Unable to spend time outside lead me inward instead, on a path to myself. The last month has been one of healing, both physically and mentally. Searching for answers to questions that have gone unanswered for the last few years is exhausting, and after dozens of doctor appointments I’m only now beginning to scratch the surface.
Things of note:
- These are the cutest low-waste valentines.
- Here are 5 spring outfits from my minimal closet.
- Very into this collaboration.
- Is it spring yet? I cannot wait to start working on my flower garden.
- Did you know that you can purchase pre-loved Cuyana bags via their revival program?
I am so excited to finally launch a service this month. After many requests, Minimal Closet Coaching is coming!
As always, please don’t hesitate to comment or reach out with any suggestions, questions, or if you just need someone to talk to. I’m always here.
