Messy Minimalism: Make Minimalism Your Own (without the perfectionism) with Rachelle Crawford
28:41Today I talk with Rachelle Crawford of Abundant Life with Less, author of Messy Minimalism. Rachelle and I talk about how perfectionism can be debilitating on our road to a less cluttered life, and how we can move past it and define minimalism for ourselves. Forgive me for my technical difficulties in this interview, which you won't notice until the end. Our conversation was cut slightly short because of tech issues, but I also talk a little bit about what you missed in my recap at the end of the episode.

Taking Photos of our Family Intentionally: Be Present, Get Photos You'll Cherish, Plus Tips for Family Photo Day with Jenna Arvidson
43:27Today I'm talking with professional photographer, Jenna Arvidson, all about photos of our family: the ones you take and the ones taken of you. Most of us have a smartphone which can make us feel the pressure of constantly capturing the moments of our kids and lives in general- but sometimes the phone/photos can be a distraction and keep us from being present, and almost always we take about a million but only print out a few. Today, Jenna gives us tips on how to get the photos we will actually cherish of our families and be present for the rest instead of constantly living with a phone in our hands so we don't miss a photo op. She also gives us tips on family photo day from a photographer's perspective, and how to stress less when the day comes.
