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.

You inspired me to begin Anne of GG again. It's been fun spending time with her again. I like people to kiss flowers. :)
How was your dinner and pie last night?
I am a wee bit tired of snow, aren't you? I'm ready for my roses!


I think it's about time I do my yearly-ish reread as well. :) My favorite in the series is Windy Poplars - I think it's because of all the letter writing she does in there, but I can read that as a stand alone anytime.

I've only read the first book. I'll have to read them all (from the library, since I'm still on my book fast).

I got the DVD from the library to watch on my girls' weekend at the beach.

I so love Anne fact my daughter's middle name is Anne (with an E of course!). I need to re-read the books, I have a treasured 3 in 1 set that my dad gave me when I graduated.


Loved Anne when I was growing what age were your girls when you began reading Anne of Green Gables to them?

There is nothing I love more than a cool day(or any day) and a good Anne book! I'm glad you had the chance to read and share the time with her!


I shall have to revisit these Anne books... especially with my ne found love of "old" romances... you know, where are the love is created before the first kiss???

Thanks for the inspiration!
God bless-
