I believe we would be happier to have a personal revolution in our individual lives and go back to simpler living and more direct thinking. It is the simple things of life that make living worthwhile, the sweet fundamental things such as love and duty, work and rest, and living close to nature. — Laura Ingalls Wilder
Thursday afternoon we headed up to my parents’ new cabin. It isn’t furnished yet, but there’s something to be said for simplicity. (This photo was snapped before the previous owners moved all their stuff out)
There wasn’t a lot to look at, keep clean, trip over, walk around, or potentially be spilled on. We had the clothes we were wearing plus one other pair. We ate the food we brought and when it was gone, it was gone. We played outside in the leaves–those were all the toys we needed. We scavenged whatever we could find to make soft beds and snuggled up together to keep warm at night.
No TV. No internet. Just us. Simple. Restful. What’s cluttering you up and not allowing you to rest?
