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.

Looks like a great place to curl up with an afghan and a cup of coffee for a nice, long chat!


Your home is so comfy and looks so inviting and peaceful. I wish that when Holly had taken us by that day that you had been home. :) YOur couch looks so it good for naps? ;)


Welcome (back) to Colorado, Joanne. I'm in the Springs. Just popped back into your blog after a while.

Your family room looks so peaceful! Are your bunnies your pets or are they wild ones who live in your yard?


I love your sofas. I've always liked that particular sofa. I love the floral cover too.

The chair book case is a wonderful idea.

An adorable cozy roomXX


I have some of the same books you do! I love the metal clippy thingy, and the stripy couches are calling me.
