Welcome to Simply Unscripted
Your life feels like a constant source of chaos
- You’re mentally drained from a stressful day at work.
- You have figure out what to cook for dinner when the last thing you feel like doing is cooking.
- The kids can’t seem to get along. For even five seconds.
- The house looks like a tornado blew through.
The list goes on.
Papers to fill out for school. A sink full of dishes. Bills to pay. The never-ending laundry.
We are trying to balance too many things and are barely hanging on. We are stretched thin, so thin.
How can we ever feel like we are living a balanced life with all these competing priorities?

Hi! I’m Kristina!
I‘m a frugalista, minimalist, and wanderer extratraordinaire. I’m a number cruncher by day and have a bachelor’s degree in finance. I currently live in Pennsylvania and I’m a single mom to three kids: a 15 year old daughter, a 6 year old daughter, and a 4 year old son.
My Unscripted Life
I’ve been through many ups and downs in life including getting divorced (twice) and moving cross-country (five times).
The biggest upheaval of my life was a series of events that occurred in a few shorts months of 2015. The company I worked for was being bought out and I’d lose my job within the year. My marriage ended abruptly. And there was no way I could afford the home I loved. Suddenly, I was a single working mom to three kids. With a mortgage payment over my pay grade and a job loss on the horizon.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

LIFE GOES ON
It was the lowest point of my life. I had no sense of direction. I didn’t know what made me happy anymore. And I most certainly didn’t know where I wanted to go next.
As crazy as it may sound, my life veering off my original script was the best thing to happen to me.
How did I want to live my life going forward? What values were important to me? How on earth do I manage everything without losing my mind?
Through self-discovery (and a lot of trial and error!), I’ve managed to create a life I’m proud to call my own.
I focus on living intentionally and simply. My goals, aspirations, and values take center stage.
I’ve found ways to balance the crazy chaos of running a household, working full-time, raising three kids, and taking care of myself.
A balanced life is always a work in progress…join me in your journey to a life well-lived!
