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.

One time I did that at Anthropologie! I don't know how I did, but I did. I put everything (even sale stuff) back. I felt so refreshed!

You are so sweet to link to me, and allow me to share my journey with others! It has truly been a journey, and one that I'm so glad I'm on right now. The look on my husband's face when he saw his Pop's fedora hanging in our front hall...priceless! He immediately recognized it, broke into a big grin, and told me how sharp his grandfather always looked in that hat! My reward has been great.

I love how you give yourself permission to have an empty cart & put things back!
