Seven years is a long time

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.
