It was becoming a mom that led Emily to the life she leads today: A designer, author, and the creator of the wildly popular Simplified Planner. After struggling with wanting to be the “perfect” mom and creating overpacked schedules (and stressful days), she came to the realization that “joy is truly found in the journey — not necessarily at the destination.” As she explains on her website, “I knew I had to make a change by simplifying my days and refocusing my efforts. From that point forward, I devoted my creative energies towards tools that empower and encourage women like myself to do just that.” The home she shares with her husband and three kids mirrors many of Emily’s philosophies. It’s a simple, fun space that’s organized…but also the sometimes-messy home of young kids.
