Searching for Simple

In this recent time of reordering my life, I find one of my desires is to live more simply. As a family, we have been purging ourselves of possessions and consumer thinking. (We've been doing this slowly, its not always very easy). I'm tired of life being about, "What can I get now?" Ugh, its a never-ending path. You never arrive anywhere, you just keep going and going! Meanwhile, your money does run out and time with loved ones runs out, too. Get me off that road! 
Its strange to ask yourself, "What are the most basic things I want for my life?" For me, two of those things are living more naturally and living more artfully. It seems those two things go hand-in-hand. I found this video today, and it gives a glimpse into what joining those two things might look like. Maybe you've seen it before but I still love it! (Except in my version, there would be a little less facial hair)
Found via "That Kind of Woman"

Thanks for sharing this video. What a blessing to steal away to your own private and quiet sanctuary. :)

Hi Gerri
You're right. I love the idea of stealing away to a quiet place:)

As you know, Carolina, I am feeling much the same way. Loved the video! Although, when she said that they planned to build another building once they were done with the barn? I'd be good with JUST the barn! It looked so amazing!

I'm with you in spirit on the pursuits of something simpler! :)
