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.

I am drooooooooooooling over your maps! Maps, globes, LOVE.

Have I mentioned that I am SO excited for you and your nest-feathering?? You just weren't made to live in an unfeathered nest, no matter where it may be.

Love you!!
