I am all for simple living and living a gentle, quiet and cosy life.
My thoughts on simple living are by slowing down, cherishing the small things in life and seeing the beauty in everyday living.
I thought that I would share a few thoughts of mine from our home.
♥ Putting thought into how we keep our home by using what we have, getting rid of what we do not need and keeping within a budget as we make our home into a warm and cosy haven.
♥ If there is something we want to bring into our home, save for it, buy quality as it will last a long time.
♥ When family and friends come to visit, welcome them and be prepared to offer food and drink. It is nice to have a little space in my pantry stocked just for that purpose.
♥ Take time to linger. Enjoy the moment. Slow down.
♥ Enjoy what we have. Be content and satisfied with what we have. Take care of what we have.
♥ Everything does not need to be perfect. Keeping things simple, but nice is what works for us.
♥ Sharing what we have is important. It gives us a good feeling to share with others.
♥ Lighting candles is a way to cosy our home. We even have two rustic little battery candles on our front porch. It adds such a warm and cosy touch.
♥ I find it so important to take time throughout the day to be quiet, to rest, to relax. It makes for a pleasant day.
♥ A nice warm bath ... candle lite ... soft music. A perfect way to end the day.
Simplicity, to me is to enjoy simple pleasures of life, feeling warm and content and has nothing to do with material possessions, but to do with people, happiness and enjoying the moment.
