As I mentioned in my previous post here, life is really messy. There are certain seasons, and different ebbs and flows that affect us all differently. However though, one thing that I am learning is that you can never have one season without another.Read more
That’s what I look for whenever I buy a pair of shoes. Gone are the years where I torment my feet by wearing shoes that leave me with blisters, or that pull off as soon as I walk through the door. When I was in high school, I would wear pointed stilettos about once a week to school just for the fun of it. Let me tell you, they were not comfortable, and I’m pretty sure I have permanent foot damage now because of it. The stupid things we do for fashion. Read more
Pregnancy is a hard and confusing thing. Our bodies are changing daily, we are exhausted even if we do get a good night sleep, and for so many women, there are countless days, especially at the beginning, full of sickness and fatigue.
Now, throw a toddler on top of that and it just amplifies the hardest parts. Forget about a good night sleep, forget about laying in bed all day if you are sick, and forget about being able to rest when your legs and body are begging you to. You have a little person to take care of and tend to, and rest isn’t really on the top of their priority list. Read more
It feels like it has been forever since I have sat down to write. And that’s because it has been. I haven’t written consistently for about 4 months. 4 whole months that just slipped by. I told myself that I would give myself a week off, and then that turned into a month, and now here we are. If I am being completely honest, I didn’t take this time off because I was too busy, but in all reality, I just haven’t wanted to write. I haven’t had the energy to write lighthearted fluff, yet I definitely didn’t have the ability to process everything that has been going on in the past few months, much less write about it and share it with the world.

Traveling with a baby is something that gets a lot of attention. For the good and the bad. People are always watching, waiting for something to happen. And then if it doesn’t, they are quick to share their surprise. Almost as if they know you and what your child is like. Read more
Coffee is one of those things that connects so many people. Whether it is sitting down with an old friend over a cup of coffee, or sitting down alone with a good book. Coffee is the constant, and is really acceptable at any point in the day. Read more
“WITH WISDOM COMES THE DESIRE FOR SIMPLICITY” – BRENDON BURCHARD
Welcome, friends, to The Everyday Simple!
The Everyday Simple emerged from an idea, more a dream, of everyone living a simpler life. A life more fulfilling and quiet. I want to help people to find their rhythm in the busyness of this thing called life. I want to help people learn how to simplify their lives, so that they can actually enjoy the lives they have. I want to break down barriers between simple and beautiful, expensive and affordable. I want to bring people together, solely for the reason that they have an area in their life that they want to change. Simplify. I don’t think any of us will look back in 20 years and say, “Man, I wish I hadn’t lived so simply.” Simple is not to be confused with boring. Simple is just the way in which we go about and attack this adventure called life.
To those who have followed along with by Nicole George, thank you. Thank you for being with me since the beginning. My life has changed so much since I created that space, and have loved growing up there. However, I am so excited to be moving towards other things. Pushing myself and trying things I never even knew I wanted to do. This is still the same Nicole, with the same voice and heart, just a different focus.
In addition to the launch of the blog, I am also offering my e-book A Quick Guide to Simplify Your Life Today for free! It focuses on 7 prominent areas of our lives, and gives applicable ways to take charge and bring simplicity back into them. Things that we practice in our home, and are tried and true. You can access this by either entering your email in the box below, or clicking on the title and following the prompts from there.
I know that we cannot change the world, and there is no way to slow it down, but what we can change is how we choose to live in it. We have the power to choose not to let moments pass us by anymore because we are too busy. We can focus on the things we actually enjoy instead of the things we feel like we “have” to do.
