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.

It looks very festive. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your pictures later in the month.

Kelly

Your tree looks great! I haven't even thought about Christmas decorating yet. I need to get on the ball.

Meredith

I thought you were strictly an after Thanksgiving decorator! You broke your own rule!

(Me too! Almost a week early, and I haven't regretted it for one minute.)

Looks great.

Leah

Your house is so beautiful!!! And yes, the tree looks great. I found your blog a couple of weeks ago, and have been reading bits of it here and there. I am a mom of girls too (3 girls -ages 7, 5, and 2). I would love to hear sometime on how you teach your girls about God and the Bible.

I love it all...simple yet beautiful! I love stopping by here:)...you always inspire me to be creative!!!

Happy Thanksgiving ( a little late), I'm thankful for your blog:)

Marla Taviano

How fun! Can't wait to see the rest of the pics!

And hi to Leah! ^ I'm a mom of 3 girls too (almost 8, 6, and almost 3). You'll love Joanne!

Puva

I'm really in the mood for Christmas now!! Love the trees!

Puva

Ditto Ms. Marla! Everyone loves Joanne!

We celebrated Advent too with our 3 girls. I think you are right it keeps the focus on Christ. My girls had trees in there rooms too...it is so fun to go to sleep by them. You may do this now but you can give them an ornament every year (date it ) and when they get married present them to them in a box, they now have a great start to their tree as a newlywed :) the snow picture is so peaceful.

I always have a hard time waiting until after Thanksgiving to decorate, too! I put up everything except the tree a week or two before Thanksgiving. :)

I did a linkup of all the home tours from Colorado bloggers today and included yours!
