My mission: to live a simple and happy life. For someone writing a blog, you might think I am an expert at this kind of stuff. Nope. Just getting started over here!
I haven’t always been striving for simple. I started out my adult life with lots of wants and goals in mind…nothing wrong with that. However, with each goal achieved, I believed that more happiness would follow. I thought that once I reached all my goals, I would have a happy life. Well, fast forward a decade or so, many achievements later, and yet I had still not found happiness. Instead, I was left with a house full of things I don’t even use, large monthly bills, and lots of stress. Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband and family, but I couldn’t get over why I was always running around just to keep up. I wasn’t left with any time to enjoy my wonderful family and home. What I finally realized is that we had lots of things, but we were missing one big thing. That thing was ‘simple’. I am now a firm believer that simple=happy. And this blog will focus on just that; simple living, simple home ideas, simple meals, simple family fun, and so on…
I haven’t gotten it all figured out yet- I am far from living completely simple- but for me it’s not about the destination- it is the journey. Welcome to my journey.
