Welcome! I'm Crystal Nerpel, organizing expert, founder of the Loving Your Home Club and self-proclaimed homebody. Home is my favorite place on earth!
I enjoy going on vacation and being outdoors, but I'm always so happy to come home. That being said, years ago, my home was a place of stress for me. It was messy, disorganized and sometimes chaotic...basically, it was mirroring what was going on inside my mind!
There is a profound connection between mental and physical clutter, and I was feeling it. I took charge of the clutter in my home and started noticing a shift in my state of mind. Clearing the clutter and shifting the energy in my home cleared my vision.
An ah-ha moment
My ideal life emerged gradually, but it felt like it happened instantly. One mid-week afternoon I was sitting in a restaurant with my friend Kate. We were eating and having a great conversation like we always do. In that moment, I had an epiphany. I thought, “Well hell! I’m living the life I always wanted. Cool!”
Being able to savor the little things whenever I want is my version of an ideal life. Going to to lunch with friends in the middle of the week, working out when I feel like it, spending time with my husband, hopping in the car and visiting my sister whenever I miss her is my dream life....AND I'm living it.
The life I always wanted was always here. I just couldn’t see it because it was buried under the clutter and chaos (mental and physical). As I shifted my focus towards loving my home I started loving my life. I was able to grasp opportunities I hadn't noticed before.
Since learning how to love my home, I have taught hundreds of women how to do the same. Feel free to join my free Loving Your Home Community and check out the Loving Your Home Club if you are ready to create the home and life you deserve.
It's my job to help you deepen your understanding of how your home can support YOU and the life you want.
Even though I began this organizing journey focused on taking care of myself, this truly is a team effort. My family pitches in when needed and they let me practice my organizing skills on them. They are my biggest supporters.
For 26 years, I have been married to a smart, creative, sweet man who supports my mission to declutter, de-stress and simplify the world, one home at a time.
I'm the proud mama of Tori and Barret. Tori is in college and Barret is in middle school, and they both amaze me with their talents and hearts.
We LOVE to spend family time at our ranch with our dog, our cat and cows. Life is simple at the ranch, so it's my happy place.
