Most of us live such a busy life.
I feel like our schedule is slower and easier because we homeschool but I wish I could slow it down even more.
I admire many of my friends that also have the joy and privilege of owning land, animals and growing so much of what their family eats.
My dad always had the biggest garden and we were spoiled by how easily Illinois soil produced abundantly.
Even if I never have a hobby farm I have promised myself that we are going to take steps to become our own urban farmers and do what we can with the land we have.
While I was in the south of France you can't help but slow down.
Really slow down.
Notice the people that truly live a simpler life.
We don't need to move to have that….we just have to be intentional with our time, family, friends.
I can have simpler….it is a choice.
