Intentional Guide to Working From Home

Since last October, I’ve been working from home. My previous two “proper” jobs post-university, while very different from each other (geologist turned coffee-shop business manager), both came with established schedules and tasks assigned to me. Now that I’m working a combination of free-lance jobs (digital marketing, web design, writing), it’s been a welcomed but very…

Intentional Guide to Packing

On our recent trip to Israel, we did something we never, ever do: we took a cab to the airport [gasp!].

The Intentional Wardrobe

The upgrade of our wardrobes is one of the areas we’re most excited about as we explore, design and implement the intentionally good life. We mean “upgrade” in a different sense than you’re probably thinking. Let’s start with the basics. This goes beyond just hanging and folding clothes like you’re supposed to rather than just…

Intentional Morning Routine

The Intentional Morning Routine Dear friends, I am a man of habit and routine [CC Ed. Note: Oh, really. We had no idea.]. I don’t particularly appreciate chaos and disorder in my daily life, and I really don’t do well with things that manage to upset my routine (you hear that, future children?!?). Most of…
