Hi! My name is Laidel May, and I’m a memory keeper with a great love for capturing memories in words and photos, a moderate minimalist, a coffee lover, a reader, a wife, a mom, a homemaker, and a believer.
I’m an accountant by profession, but I’m a “creative” at heart who loves to weave words together, take photographs and create and design digital products meant to encourage and inspire simplicity, creativity, and purpose in your days.
Sparkle in the Simple is a passion project that started as a personal blog to document the things I was learning as a new mom at that time and embracing simplicity and minimalism as means to a slower and more meaningful life.
Sparkle in the Simple welcomes you as you are and values the notion that you are seeking simplicity in this modern time when clutter and distractions can easily creep into and overwhelm your heart and your home.
The heart of simplicity, I’ve learned over the years, is more than just decluttering the physical clutter in our home but more so in ordering our inner world—our hearts and soul— so we can live out our purpose and live it well.
“Simplicity is an inward reality that can be seen in an outward lifestyle.”
~ Richard Foster, Freedom of Simplicity
Though I love sharing online about how to live life with less but more of what matters, you will find me happiest when I’m offline and enjoying a walk in the woods with my little family marching alongside me.
