Is Marie Kondo’s “Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” Truly Life Changing?

As the year 2019 kicks off, its a good time to think about de-cluttering and re-setting. Lately the time I spend cleaning (okay I don’t really clean that much) and or organizing has really been grinding my gears.

I tend to think of northern Vermont (where I was born) as the ends of the earth in terms of snowiness and coldness. The fact that such a large city lies just beyond Vermont’s bounds was and still is somewhat mind blowing … Continue reading Quebec City, Montreal & Burlington, VT
