Minimalism isn’t about removing everything from our lives… it’s being intentional about what we allow in. This has been a simple adventure in itself: to challenge ourselves to live differently and see how life changes when a bike becomes the family vehicle.
Slow down and see things with new eyes. Discover how a new viewpoint can make us become more intentional about our purchases, habits, and actions.
Today our family of four is embarking on a new simple adventure: We’re flying to Amsterdam and will live there for 3 weeks!
Are you frustrated when plans change? How can we still be happy when reality doesn’t seem to align with what we had planned?
I’m writing this post as my family drives home from a day in Montreal where we served in a soup kitchen today. I’ve been here many times before, but this time was special because it was the first time my daughters came too.
Nothing was on the schedule for this quiet morning and after breakfast was over, someone asked the question, “What are we going to do?”. Absolutely nothing was planned, and that was perfect. I suggested we all go for a walk, and as we set out without a destination my husband said, “Throw a shoe in the air”. And although this seems like an odd saying, we all smile because we know what it means.
