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.

Very pretty!


Do you have trouble with the little pom-pom trim collecting lint in the dryer? Or do you hang it to dry? I made something with pom-pom trim and collected the lint of the other items in the wash and I couldn't get it to look right again. I haven't tried again since then - that was black pom-pom trim so maybe that affected it.


I think they look adorable - squeezed hands and all. When my sister and I were little, my Mom sewed us look-alike things out of the same fabric. I was always pink or red - my sister blue (for her blue eyes).


So cute! (The hands AND the skirts!)

I love them! I am a sucker for tassels! That is my most favorite!!

Look at those tanned legs! They have been doing some swimming--and with the hot weather, I am so glad they can swim!!

Love you!

PS My thank you note from a couple of weeks ago blessed me--thank you for my thank you note :)
