We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

Do you have fun plans for the weekend? We’re off to Wild Mountain for water park adventures and a ride on a giant Alpine slide—and catching up with old friends in town for the week. Can’t wait!
