bloom, baby, bloom.

It's May, which means we're now five months into 2017. We're also in the midst of growth and blooming season. All you have to do is look around to see May flowers popping up all around us courtesy of those April showers. These blooms are the little reminders my spirit has been in need of lately.

day twenty. hide the remote.

Happy Day Twenty in the 30-Day Minimalism Challenge! We're in the homestretch! Today is a reader's dream. Who needs an excuse to read all day? Not me! Except I have one tiny little issue… Serena Williams. I might have to sneak away to catch a little tennis later. I'm just sayin'!

Day 20: No TV all day, read instead.

"All electronic devices emit a blue light that disturbs our melatonin production and reduces sleep quality. So, instead of ending your night with a couple of episodes of your favourite show, cuddle up on the couch with a good book today!"

Also, don't forget to visit Romance Novel in Color this week to check out the RNIC Love Bites Flash Fiction stories.

day eighteen. bye felicia.

It's Day Eighteen in the 30-Day Minimalism Challenge! This weekend, the holiday offered me an excuse to break free from social media and email and I really enjoyed myself.

However, one step that I need to take today is cleaning up my friends and following lists.

day eleven. do you.

I'm now in the second phase of the 30-Day Minimalism Challenge that was created by Into Mind and can already feel its effect on my life. That's probably why I'm excited about today's goal.

Far too often, I find myself telling people I have too much on my plate or I open up my inbox/mailbox to find junk mail… except at some point it wasn't junk. I actually requested it and wanted to be a part of whatever it was - a group I signed up for, store membership programs, after school programs my children lost interest in but for some reason I'm still tied to it… yeah… today's assignment is a good one.

day nine. woke up like what?

My daughter and two favorite friends at Sephora and MAC will probably disown me after this, but I'm enjoying the 30-Day Minimalism Challenge and have no plans to quit now.

I really don't use a lot of products in the summertime. I'm optimistic that if I can convince myself to keep it minimal now that fall is around the corner, I can have a few extra minutes for my morning rituals.
