Yesterday I got back from Nashville after speaking at the AH Inspired retreat. I had a fantastic time with some amazing women.

But, today I’m back in action with a new Lively Show episode for you!

This one is good, guys.

Really good.

I’m talking with designer Kate Arends, of the well known design blog, Wit & Delightand one of the newest Target collections!

Kate is smart, honest, vulnerable, and takes her craft seriously.

In this episode, we cover a gamut of topics including: how minimalism has evolved away from its original intent, her personal journey to learn to love and accept herself, and her relationship with mental health issues.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about minimalism, authenticity, thriving with mental health issues, or designing for Target.
