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.

How fun--Marla is too cool! Hope to meet you one day in real life!

Holly @ Crownlaiddown

So glad you got to finally meet face to face. They were indeed a joy to have--and I'm you were the absolute conduit of that blessing we received.

Love you, friend...miss you, too!

Holly @ Crownlaiddown

Oops! I meant "I'm sure you were..."


Those 5 girlies are all so beautiful and looked like they had tons of fun together!

I love all the pictures and I'm glad you had fun with my family! They are pretty cool. :)


Glad you guys had a great sorry we couldn't meet them in NY!
