The Software Conference from a Woman

I attended a software conference last week as a customer. It's a huge annual event with all day training courses and discussion, talks of future plans, and past accomplishments.

Technological Clutter: Time to Purge

Yesterday, I spent my entire day going through the garage with my husband as a continuation of the #ruthlessdeclutterchallenge we started weeks ago.

The author manifests a purposefully unconventional approach to Christianity … Continue reading Currently Reading: Bandersnatch

A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

I'm currently sitting in the airport which is a place I haven't been in quite some time. I'm traveling for work, making my way to a 6 day training which will end with some new certifications and knowledge about how to better support my team. 6 days. With an additional day devoted to travel. It's … Continue reading A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

Reviewing the KonMari Method: Over a Year Later

I downloaded Marie Kondo's Spark Joy on my Kindle the other day and read through the chapters in a matter of hours. The new year is full of resolutions and while tidying wasn't on the forefront of mine, seeing my friends engage in their first reading of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up inspired me to check out … Continue reading Reviewing the KonMari Method: Over a Year Later
