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.

So fun...thanks for sharing all the birthday love!

Oh how my Courtney loves the movie above. Have a wonderful girly girl time!


LOVE to see pics again on the blog!!!!! Keep taking pics, even if they are random. And love how the curtains look, especially with your amazing family photos above the fireplace. :)


Sounds like you had a FANTASTIC birthday, so I won't wish you a happy one, rather a wonderful and fulfilling year to come!

Birthday love from oz!
