There’s nothing sweeter than a warm welcome home. That feeling of peace, belonging and safety you get from arriving home and knowing this is the place for you. Home. Does your home wrap loving arms around you and welcome you in? Does each room greet you with a comfortable ease? Does your space reflect the […]

A year ago I was feeling stressed, guilty and exhausted. A year ago I was trying to “do it all” and to “be it all”. And in the end – when December 2012 came to a close – I looked around and realised that I had pushed myself into such a miserable corner. Was it […]

I have a little wooden music box. Handcrafted in Germany, it was given to me by my German aunt. It’s a sweet thing, and it sat on my shelf, just out of reach, all through my childhood. Seeing it there reminded me that I was loved and thought of by people far away who I […]

Last month my husband and I hit the road in this great big land of ours. We hitched up our camper trailer and took ourselves to the Outback and far reaches of Western Australia.

Once upon a time, I read a book and it had an impact. And then I took action on the things I learned in that book. The action changed my life. Some really good stuff happened. Then, in true fairytale fashion, I got to meet the author of the book, and I told her what […]

When I think of Courage, I always think of my friend – let’s call her Nicole to protect her anonymity. She is the most courageous woman I know, and an inspiration to me. Not because she jumps out of airplanes, although she has done that. Not because she’s faced illness head on and prevailed, although […]

It is often said in the Organising world… If you don’t use, need, or love something, it is clutter and doesn’t have a place in your home. I say that myself, in various forms, often. While I say it, I am sometimes reminded of the scene from the popular 1999 movie starring Heath Ledger – […]
