The Kindred & Co. blog is here for you - resources & rhythms to practice being and doing; stories from us & the community in our pursuit of living as human beings; business behind the scenes (BTS) announcements & celebrations.
I have a confession. In April I jumped on a call with this guy named Jake and Jake, along with his coworker Stephanie, offered Kindred a huge opportunity to take Kindred to a whole new level. An opportunity that would open doors to huge brand names like Paper Source, Uncommon Goods, Barnes & Noble, etc. […]
There’s something about spring that invites a refresh. Which is more than just a reset of what has already been, of rebooting the same rhythms and systems. There’s an invitation to view what has been and look for opportunities to insert newness. Maybe it’s the melting snow giving way to peeps of green underneath. Maybe […]
Ever have that moment when you’ve found an outdated planner you totally forgot about? Or when you rediscovered a planner you only used for one month? Or maybe you’re curious to start using a planner, but now they’re all outdated, or you’re going to be missing four months of the year? Or maybe you want […]
April showers bring May flowers…and spring cleaning. Now let me be clear, I never really bought into the whole spring cleaning idea until a couple years ago, when I realized that the small spaces of Boston weren’t conducive to keeping all of your items out and about all the time.

Let’s chat pandemic reflections. And before you tap exit on this post, let me frame the conversation for us.

One of my 2022 goals and rhythms I wanted to grow in is holding better work/life boundaries, therefore creating more space and leading to greater rest. For me this looks like not checking work emails on Saturdays, not checking work related items before 7AM, and ending work tasks by 5PM. At the beginning of February, […]
Meal planning in 10 minutes? I bet you my last drop of coffee that stopped your scroll. Let me start by saying, I don’t like meal planning. It’s the one task in my week that feels like a chore, more than the other ones. I’m pretty sure it’s because meal planning requires more brain space. […]
Dear kindred friend, Usually at the end of a month, I’ll write a blog post sharing my own thoughts to the current planner’s end of the month reflection question. This month, I’ll still be answering the January 2022 reflection question, but differently. This post will have an update on what happened and why our short […]
At the end of every month we write a reflection blog post that correlates with the reflection questions in the Kindred Planner.
Consider this your invitation to reflect along with us, coffee (or tea) in one hand and Kindred Planner (or journal) in the other.
Your worth, who you are and who you are becoming are so important to the heart of Kindred & Co. that we put together a series of blog posts to help you practice being.
Sweet like honey are the encouraging stories you'll find here.
Read the stories from our community gathered here! Some stories of K&Co. products, yes, but more important, stories of how they are living as human beings, finding their identity first and foremost in their inherent worth.
From the moments that have shaped Kindred & Co. to the big dreams seen fulfilled to the best roundup of YOUR kindred stories, here are our favorites posts.
