Monthly Reflections | March

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

I was recently visiting Anna on her blog Rich as Kings and I fell in love with a monthly post she wrote called Taking Stock. It's sort of a monthly recap of everything she's been up to in little nibbles of thoughts.  She had a blank template at the bottom of her post and offered it up to anyone who wanted to use the format.  I couldn't resist.

Simple Gratitude | 02

Today I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog #gratitude #feelingthankful

The week has been a long one.  It's been full of hurdles and struggles and I'm so glad it's over.  The new week brings a slower pace and hopefully, an easier time for my little family.

Links to Love | 37

A very happy Friday to you!  I'm starting to love Fridays these days.  They feel like the kick-off for the weekend and now that my husband doesn't have to work on weekends like he did during snow season, I have more time to spend with him.  Now, on to my faves of the week.

When a Texas Walmart went out of business, the town made good use of the empty building by filling it with books!

Simple Gratitude | 01

Today I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog #gratitude #feelingthankful
I have had a gratitude journal for some time now, and although it's done a great deal in promoting positivity in my life, I feel I could benefit more by sharing gratitude here on the blog.  On Sundays, I'll be sharing weekly recap posts that focus on being grateful.

I'm doing my happy dance because it's Friday and it actually feels like Spring!  The windows have been open and I can't wait to get started on my spring cleaning.  (I know, sad, huh?)

One of my favorite things about Spring is being able to stay out in the yard at night and watch the night sky light up and twinkle with stars.  Some of these sky-gazing spots are definitely going on my bucket list.

Happy Friday, friends.  It's the time of the week where I share the things I love with you!  Starting with a magical path inspired by my favorite artist, Van Gogh.

101 IN 1001 | A Day Zero Project

101 in 1001 | A Day Zero Project - A Simpler Grace

Hi friends!  If you are really detail-oriented, you might have noticed that I snuck in an extra button to my tab bar above.  This week, I joined the Day Zero project and created my list of 101 things to complete in the next 1,001 days.

Happy Friday to you!  It seems like it's been the longest week, but it might just be that way for me because we've been counting down to the "snowstorm of 2015".  We were predicted to get 6-10 inches of snow and we actually got less than five.  [wah-wah-waaaah]  I can't wait for Spring!

Speaking of Spring, soon Washington, DC will be turning pink with blooming cherry blossom trees. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival always starts in late March when the buds are just beginning to open.  It's a beautiful sight and like candy for photographers.

Keeping Your Life Simple | A Journey to Minimalism

My journey to minimalism and how I keep my life simple. #minimalism #simpleliving

This post is part of The Peony Project's monthly link-up

Do you ever get that feeling when you move to a new home, throw the moving truck door open and are instantly overwhelmed at all the stuff you have? Welcome to my life. My name is Lecy and I am a chronic minimalist.
