A new day dawns and with it my dreams of simplicity. Deep within me there is a great yearning for a life of simplicity and yet my progress seems so slow at times. But I must remember progress is progress and change does not happen overnight.
I dream of line-dried laundry, a lush flower garden, a successful vegetable garden, fruit trees, a well-stocked pantry, free-range chickens for fresh eggs, making everything I can myself, handmade gifts, cross-stitching and embroidery, and a consistently clean and cozy home...among other things.
Having grown up without instructions in the art of homemaking, I feel I am behind the curve ball even now after 17 years of marriage. So I want to make sure my girls are prepared for the care and keeping of their future homes, so I am bringing them alongside me as I go about my work. I hope to pass on my love of the simple life to them.
What do you dream of?
