So Welcome to it’s my Favorite day!
A place to find not only tips for simple and intentional living, but encouragement, inspiration, and motivation to make today your favorite day.
I want you to know that I understand the overwhelm of a crazy busy schedule with a to-do list that never seems to end. What it’s like to try and manage life on the restrictions of a small budget, watching every dollar you spend. I understand the longing for an uncomplicated life. The desire to love the life you have right now, rather than waste precious moments waiting for the next thing.
My name is Kristal, I live in crazy Southern California with my husband, my two amazing kids, and our giant German Shepherd. My greatest passions in life are the Lord, my family, and creating an uncomplicated life in the midst of the everyday chaos.
After many years working full time in a successful career as an attorney, my heart began to long to be home and have more time with my children. I became more and more discontent with the way I was dividing my time. When I was at work, I was worried about things at home, when I was at home I was worried about things at work. I knew something had to change.
That is when my journey to simple and frugal living began. Within a few years, I was able to quit my full-time career practicing law, for part time work at my church. Of course, this meant a 75% drop in pay. With such a large drop in pay, I was really forced to ramp up my efforts to live frugally, while at the same time being able to manage a 30 hour a week job, a husband, two children, and a house.
Things I normally paid others to do, I suddenly had to do myself. No more eating out, going to the car wash, dry cleaners, etc. There was more laundry to do, more dishes to wash and more trips to the grocery store. Time management and making sure my priorities were lining up became vital. Life became all about learning to simplify.
But, perhaps the biggest thing I have learned is that joy is a choice we make each day, despite our circumstances.
That’s me, now let’s talk about you!
