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.

What a fun place for a girls' night out! We have a similar place (minus the great views you have!) that we often choose for our nights.

Amen on the girlfriend stuff! And and extra amen (!!!) for the hubbies that "get it" and encourage that time. I'm blessed in that way, too.

So glad you're getting to have some fun times amidst all the hustle and bustle of preparing for your move.

Blessings!

Oh that looks so beautiful, relaxing and yummy!

This post could not have been more timely or more needed - thank you for sharing. You fed my soul from a few thousand miles away. THANKS!

Looks like an amazing place! How I miss my girlfriends(God has provided a couple of friends her in Paris for whom I am grateful)!

OMW - I wanna be in your secret club!! lol! Seriously though - friends are just about the most amazing asset we women are blessed with. I know this is a bittersweet time for you and I'm thrilled you had such a wonderful evening with such wonderful friends at a TOTALLY cool place! LOVE the pics!

The red wine looks wonderful. I had the best glass of wine ever a month ago. It was a red zinfandel. I never knew their was red zinfandel. It is the first press from the zinfandel grapes...the blush is a later press. Full body with a chocolate taste. Speaking of girl time...we will be in Pheonix for Thanksgiving...maybe we can hook-up if you will be in town for the holiday.

Also there is a cool website I just start to use call www.freecycle.org. It uses regional yahoo groups so people can give stuff away free or ask for stuff free. Helps us not throw-away usable stuff and be frugal. Nothing can be sold only given away. Have to check it out after the move. Hang it there it will feel so good to be organzied when it is done...just hard in the process.
