What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

by the way, my husband is communicating with a few Denver employers. I may need to hear more about your 'hood! (but it's premature at this moment. :)



I've been visiting your blog regularly, always waiting excitedly for your next post. Your entries are usually so optimistic and focused on looking on the bright side of life. This is one of the things we have in common, I suppose :)

I love sewing too! I suppose that's another reason why I frequent this blog. Few of my friends enjoy needlework and many times, they have asked me what is so interesting about sewing that I enjoy it so much. Your sewing projects are awesome, by the way!

I also really like the fact that you're a beautiful person who values your family and friends.!

Alright, this has been a really long "comment". I hope you don't mind that I've been reading your entries. Please let me know if I'm being rather um, intrusive. I'd like to apologise if I'm intruding on private space. I honestly didn't mean to! I just enjoy reading your entries :)


Judging from the photos from your walk I wish we lived in your neighborhood too! Not to mention I would love to take you up on your offer to stop by your house or have you stop by mine! My husband is working with some head hunters in hopes of finding a job in Colorado. So maybe we will meet face-to-face one day. This all just started; neither of us are loving TX. Sigh. Have a great weekend!
