Hi there! I’m Hayley – a wife, mama, retired barista, and home enthusiast obsessed with decluttering my home and simplifying my life.
I grew up in a small town in Iowa and was raised in a cookie shop. Literally. My mom owned a cookie store/cafe and would bring me to work every day until I was old enough to go to school. I worked there growing up and it was a huge part of my life until we sold it in 2014.
After graduating from Iowa State with a degree in Marketing, I moved down to Arizona where I met my wonderful husband! We got married in April 2016, moved into our house, and busted our butts renovating everything. After our house was closer to our standards, we got pregnant and welcomed our little Griffin in November 2017!
Motherhood has been a huge adjustment for me (read more here). My anxiety skyrocketed, but I’ve found that by decluttering and organizing my stuff, it takes the edge off. Little by little, I’m decluttering and organizing so I can lead a more simple and streamlined life.
Our house had been foreclosed upon when we bought it at an auction. An online auction. My husband and I were each sitting at work, frantically texting each other as he put in bids. You can read more about that here.
We’re slowly but surely renovating our home and turning it into our dream house! We’ve already “flipped” multiple rooms – see ’em all below!
