Hi, I’m Lindsay! Thanks for stopping by!
Something Splendiferous is a place to help moms live their best lives. I provide tools to help busy moms simplify, minimize and revive their lives. You deserve me-time too! I want you to stop drowning and start living!
I’m a working mom and I want to help you stop stressing, get out from under all the chaos and start living. You can work, have kids, live a full life and not feel overwhelmed! I believe in you, mama!
I started my blog in 2017, and restarted it in 2019. In the beginning, I lacked direction and focus. Helping other working moms was what I wanted to do, but I didn’t really know how I was going to do it. I didn’t really feel like I was living my best life so how could I help other moms?
I started to make some changes in my own life. I looked at the things that were stressing me out the most and began researching like a mad woman.
I went through Allia Casazza’s course Your Uncluttered Home and I started to purge all the excess that had been weighing me down. I also began researching a morning routine because I knew my time management was out of control. I felt weighted down and I just couldn’t keep up. There was always laundry to do, bathrooms to clean, dishes and food to prep. The list of to-do was endless.
Do you ever feel this way?
All the clutter and tasks were overwhelming and I was sick of it! I wanted something more for my life and more for other moms too. That’s when I found minimalism. I devoured articles, podcasts, and YouTube videos.
The idea was overwhelming at first but as I started to purge my entire house a little at a time I felt the clouds began to lift, things were becoming lighter, and I wanted more, I mean less! I wanted other moms to know what this felt like. I started to feel lighter, my perspective began to change. I’m still working at purging every day, but I now know where I’m going. Sometimes having a goal is half of the battle.
Living a life for Christ and building a legacy for my kids is what I strive for daily. By purging the excess I’m finding more time for my family. I’m working towards spending more time with God, being an example for my children and becoming a more minimal person. Old habits die hard, though, so please pray for me!
Creating, cooking, taking pictures, saving money, and raising our two kids with my best friend and husband is what I love. I’ve been married for 12 years and have two beautiful children. I love my husband and I wouldn’t trade our marriage for anything, but it hasn’t always been easy. Through every challenge, God has strengthened us and brought us closer to Him. I hope you can find joy in the little snippets of our life and learn about God’s grace along the way.
Creating a blog has been at the back of my mind for years. While stretching and challenging myself to do something I’ve never done before, I hope to be transparent so that you can learn from my mistakes.
Join me and my family in the beautiful pacific northwest as we live life. I hope you find something splendiferous, but most of all I hope you see Jesus shine through all that I do.
