Happy 2021 & Introducing The Live Simply Monthly Mantra Calendar!

  Welcome to 2021, and the Live Simply 2021 calendar! Each month of this year, in addition to a delightfully on-brand illustration (created for us by the illustrious Ariel Markowitz), we're giving you an intention word and a mantra to accompany it. Read it every morning. Read it multiple times per day if it resonates with you. Take a sharpie and write your own above mine. The point is to purposefully direct our minds through ...
