Monthly Reflections | March

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections
Hi, friends.  So, how is March over already?  

True to the old adage, March did come in like a lion and go out like a lamb.  We started the month with snow and we are ending with spring temperatures and cherry blossoms.  It's been a beautiful month and I can only hope that April is more of the same.

Simple Gratitude | 22

Good morning.  I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend and your week is off to a great start.  

This weekend was a bittersweet one for me, but I got to spend a lot of time with my family and that is worth more than gold.  I am so thankful we all live pretty close to each other again and can gather for holidays and enjoy each other's company.

Hello, Monday!

You know when you can just sense it's going to be a good week?  Well, this week is going to be one of those good weeks.  I've got lots on my to-do list to prep for Easter, including dying eggs with my niece, planning the final touches for our family dinner and making a new recipe for tsoureki, which is a Greek Easter bread.

Curating a Capsule Wardrobe

Curating a Capsule Wardrobe - A Simpler Grace
Maybe you want to simplify your closet.  Maybe you want to make it easier to get ready in the morning.  Maybe you don't have a huge budget for clothing and want to make the pieces you do purchase count.  These are just a few of the reasons women are opting for a capsule wardrobe over the walk-in closet packed to the brim.

Simple Gratitude | 20

So, we're back to the cold, rainy weather true to the tail-end of winter and I'm not liking it after the tease into the 70's and 80's last week.  I was just getting in the mood for spring cleaning, pulling the warm weather clothing from the back of the closets and opening the windows to let in some fresh air, but these things will have to wait for a bit longer.

Giving Yourself Grace in Weight Loss

Finding grace in being realistic and sticking to your health goals
If you've ever been on a diet or following an exercise plan, you know how awful it feels when you miss a day in the gym or fall off the wagon and enjoy one-too-many cheat meals.  You might feel like a failure.  You might feel like all the work you've put in up to that point was for nothing.  Today, I hope to offer a little encouragement to you.

Good Monday to ya!  Spring is IN. THE. AIR!  We are expecting temps in the mid 70's this week and there is no one more excited about that than me.  It's going to be a busy week, so I'm jumping right in to today's post.  I hope you have a great day, friends!

In Love on Instagram | Winter 2016

In Love on Instagram | Winter 2016 - A Simpler Grace

I wrote a post like this last November and apparently, you guys really enjoyed finding some new Instagram accounts to follow.  So much so, that you asked for another one.  This season, I'm featuring some IGers that I've been following for quite some time.  Their feeds boast some stunning images and their use of natural light is spot on.  There is a photographer who shares pictures that are absolutely magical and a few life/style bloggers with lovely curated photos mixed with real life moments.  These are my winter 2016 Instagram favorites.

Hello March | Goals

Hello March | Goals - A Simpler Grace
You guys know I'm a big fan of checklists and, well, any lists in general, so I thought it'd be fun to start posting my monthly goals for both blogging and my personal life, here on the blog.  In every future post, I'll also share a recap of the previous month's goals, which ones I accomplished and which ones I need to try harder on.  I think this will help me stay accountable for the targets I set for myself.
