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 LOVE your idea! I never put up the tree until after Thanksgiving, but I do have a holiday tree that we use most of the year. But this is a great idea, especially if you are going to be out of town for Thanksgiving and want to get a jump on the work, but still remember Thanksgiving!

Jennifer Medeiros

This is the best idea ever. I am so anxious to put up my decorations.....so I have Thanksgiving and a little Christmas out at this time. Yet....the tree you decorated is the simply wonderful!

Jennifer Medeiros

oops....I meant SIMPLY WONDERFUL!!!!

Ah, I love your tree! I've been trying to justify putting up the tree early--my mom always did when I was growing up, but my husband thinks it's crazy. It's such a great idea and you did it so beautifully, too.

Kristy Beckendorf

LOVE it, I absolutely LOVE that idea! I can't wait to put my tree up! We will be having company on Thanksgiving, so I thought I would wait till the next day! LOVE this time of year!

I LOVE your Thanksgiving tree! Fall colors are just so beautiful, and this way you can "have your cake and eat it too!" What a great idea! Thank you for sharing!

julie

Love your Thanksgiving tree...what a fun idea! And from your previous post, I was just thinking about "brown paper packages tied up with string". I'm going to have to try wrapping that way.

rhonda

It is a beautiful tree! What a wonderful idea.

My daughter was telling me about your thanksgiving tree today when she came over to visit (and eat leftovers!) I don't know how I missed this post but I did! She was saying she thinks she just might make this a tradition at her house.....I think it is a great idea, love.love.love it! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

I was thinking about your Thanksgiving tree this morning, and came back to visit the post. I've decided I'm going to put up a Thanksgiving tree next year, too. I'm going to make cards to keep in a basket, and each night each one of us will use a card to write down something we're thankful for. Then we'll put them on the tree.

I'm going to look for fall foliage on clearance this week :-)
