Welcome to the new home! This has been in the making for a long time and even longer as just a distant dream. This is my new name - which represents a new me - well the best version of me. The aim for So Lovely, So Simple is for women just like me who like things to be lovely but they have to be simple.
I am your typical jack-of-all-trades, give me something new to learn and I will pick up enough of it to just about get by. I am master of absolutely nothing. For a few years now I have been on the hunt to find out what my one ‘thing’ is. I have listened to the podcasts, read the blog posts and watched all the videos, instantly dissuading myself from trying because I didn't have what they were telling me I needed - that one 'thing'. The elusive one 'thing' that all these people seem to have, in which they are fully and completely immersed.
But then one day recently, it finally hit me, I do have a 'thing’ - I like my life and everything in it to be lovely and simple. I want my life to be full of beauty and fun but I don't want to be bogged down by mess and complication. After this realisation, I soon discovered I have this mentality in quite literally every aspect of my life.
As a teacher, my wonderful mentor taught me how to teach and plan without any added fuss. As a songwriter, I wrote a whole EP using only four chords. As a mum, I manage to travel packing the bare minimum for my family of three. I do suppose the main reason is my husband had a brain injury and as a result suffers with memory loss. For him, routine and simplicity is key to helping him remember as much as possible. But I am such an advocate for routine and structure because, I believe, only then are you truly free to be creative. If you take away fuss, it creates room for so much more!
So what will So Lovely, So Simple be? Well it will be a place where I (and hopefully one day others) share simple ways to make life lovely. I am bursting with ideas about organisation, meal times, motherhood and much, much more. I really hope you join me both here and over on instagram and follow along and make life...
