But first, coffee.
Coffee is one of those things that connects so many people. Whether it is sitting down with an old friend over a cup of coffee, or sitting down alone with a good book. Coffee is the constant, and is really acceptable at any point in the day.
Over the years I have definitely come to appreciate good coffee. Between the way the beans are roasted, to ground, to prepared, I have been able to taste and enjoy really good coffee. With all of that being said though, I am not one that needs good coffee. I definitely appreciate it, and love the craft, but it is not something I personally am passionate about.
There are days when the mornings are fleeting, and we just use our coffee pot, and that does it’s job. However, when we do have the time, I always choose the frenchpress as my method of choice.

“WITH WISDOM COMES THE DESIRE FOR SIMPLICITY” – BRENDON BURCHARD
To those who have followed by Nicole George, thank you. Thank you for being with me since the beginning. To those of you who are more recent visitors or maybe just stumbled upon this today, I’m so glad you did. My life has changed so much since I created this space, and have loved growing up here. However, I am so excited to be moving towards other things. Pushing myself and trying things I never even knew I wanted to do. This is still the same Nicole, with the same voice and heart, just a different focus. Today I have launched a new blog, and released my first e-book A Quick Guide to Simplify Your Life Today. In honor of the launch, the book is currently free, because I am just so excited to share this with you all!
The Everyday Simple emerged from an idea, more a dream, of everyone living a simpler life. A life more fulfilling and quiet. I want to help people to find their rhythm in the busyness of this thing called life. I want to help people learn how to simplify their lives, so that they can actually enjoy the lives they have. I want to break down barriers between simple and beautiful, expensive and affordable. I want to bring people together, solely with the reason that they have an area in their life that they want to change. Simplify.

I heard something on the radio last night. They said, “This is the last weekend before Christmas!” What the heck? How did December go so fast? So, for all of the last minute shopping, (don’t worry, we are currently sitting in our living room on separate computers making final purchases) here is a list of a few stores with great gift ideas, and they are all running sales right now! Anywhere from clothing and accessories, house and home, toys, to gorgeous paper products, these shops have a little bit of everything.
This weekend we did all things Christmas. We watched the Nutcracker, went to a German Christmas Market and sipped on hot chocolate. We did a little shopping, and walked around looking at lights. We wrapped presents, baked cookies and danced around to Christmas music. These are some of my favorite ways to spend the weekends leading up to Christmas, because they are so simple, yet allow us all to be together and just enjoy one another’s company. One of my favorite things we did this weekend though was a new tradition that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now.
Hey there friends! I can’t believe it is already December. This year has flown by, but I am so excited for Christmas. The way that this season makes me feel is something that I wish I could hold onto all year long.
Christmas is, as for most people, one of my favorite times of the year. I love the smells, the lights, the weather, and the feelings. However, it is the season that goes by so quickly. The one that comes and goes before I am anywhere near ready for it. Summer blends into fall, which turns into Christmas, and then before we know it we are making New Year’s resolutions. How does it happen so dang quickly? I feel like as a kid I always counted down the days, and couldn’t wait for Christmas day to arrive. The anticipation was so real, that I could barely sleep the night before. Now, I so often fall into bed on Christmas Eve wondering how it is possibly December already?
There is something about Thanksgiving that seems to bring everyone together. It’s the beauty of the smells, sights, and sounds. Whether it is gathered around the table, or in a huddle in the backyard. Family and loved ones are the core of the holidays, and there is no better time to introduce someone to your family than at a holiday event.
