31 Days of Simplicity

  • Fresh flowers and herbs…simple

    One of the things that my husband makes most fun of is my lack of green thumb. My plants like staying at the nursery instead of being in my garden. We joke about it a lot, but he is not far from the truth. I lack a green thumb. The only plants that I can keep alive are Orchids. They are pretty forgiving.

    I do love having flower arrangements around the house. They make every room feel alive. They make me happy. Plus, they have an advantage, when they start to wilt you just throw them away. No one expects you to keep them alive like the ones planted on pots.

Less stress, less time, less money or less _________ (you fill in the blank).

  • Words of life…

    Today I have been going through some deep soul searching. Maybe it’s because I am seeing some changes going on around. Nothing to worry about, but still changes.


    Or maybe, it has been because I am intentionally soul searching due to a blog I have been reading lately. A new friend has been going through some health challenges due to a horseback riding accident she had months ago. This accident left her with both of her legs broken, some head concussions that has caused short loss memories and many bruises and cuts. (more…)
