Only seven years since my last post. WOW. For the past six months, this little blog has been on my mind. It’s not because it was a happening place, but because I am craving more simplicity in my life. When I started this blog, I was reading about voluntary simplicity. Now, I’m diving into the minimalist movement. The thought seems so scary for a family with a small business and two kids, age 12 and six.
Today I saw a Facebook post from the Minimalists about finding people for a new documentary about people who are looking to simplify their lives. I actually considered it for a minute and then realized that my family isn’t ready for it. I wish it was that easy, but my kids are attached to their junk like super glue. It’s everywhere. I sometimes wonder if the blob invaded my home with cheap plastic parts made in China.
I just want to breathe without the weight of it all. This is a good place to start.
