I have had several readers tell me that our family has inspired their family and it really just blows me away. It is only thanks to God, being persistent and taking small steps that we have been able to realize our dreams.
But, I thought that maybe I would start sharing more about the ins and outs of how we got to where we are and the steps we are taking to continue our journey. I like to think that we live "outside the box".
There are many others that have chosen similar paths and I am so thankful that the internet has helped to connect us and also for our little rural nook up here in northern Vermont where I have been able to find others that share common values. But for the most part I think our family still sticks out and that we live very differently than most in our country.
Just yesterday,for example, our fourteen year old exclaimed, "Mom, thank you for making a new dish cloth!" I thought to myself - wow! How many fourteen year olds would even notice.
So, there may be some controversial posts coming up and many of you may disagree with some of the things I write. I promise that I will not be judgemental or condemning, but instead simply share our family's way of living and what we hope to achieve by living our small simple life.
Blessings on this beautiful Monday,
