What is The Graceful Olive?
At The Graceful Olive you will discover a place where you can learn how to shrug off consumerism and embrace minimalism. Not just any old minimalism but a minimalism that will benefit you, your family and the earth
I'm just a 30 something mom who got fed up with being "busy" all the time. I wanted to be able to have the time to spend with my kids, instead of just cleaning up after them. I wanted to enjoy the weekends with my husband instead of working through our to-do lists. I wanted to be able to be a person again, instead of a slave to my things. Minimalism helped me. Along the way I discovered while we could never really be free of ALL our stuff, the stuff we did consume could have a lesser environmental impact. I didn't want to keep contributing to the unsustainable consumption of stuff our children will inevitably have to deal with some day. I found ways to do better. For myself, but mostly for my kids.
