I'm back. The fog is lifting and I can see the way forward. These last few weeks have been both frustrating and rewarding as I sifted through my thoughts and dug deep into where the heart of my blog lies. I have also been faced with new challenges at home with my husband away overseas I'm having to take on some of the extra tasks. At first I was overwhelmed by the extra work. The bitter cold that confronted me first thing in the morning when I collected firewood made me curse. But day by day I have come to enjoy this task. I soon forget the cold when I am immersed in deciding what size logs we need for the fire.
Through my work around the home it has always been easy for me to understand why I have chosen this lifestyle for our family. I feel comforted by a vase of cut flowers on the windowsill, a pile of nappies that need stuffing, a fire that has been freshly lit, the smell of freshly baked rolls, the linen drying on the line under the veranda and watching small hands work alongside mine.
The truth is that it won't always be about sharing the comforts with you. Life isn't always simple, frugal, creative, green and calm here. But I will be honest and I will be authentic. My voice has returned and it comes from my heart. Live Life Simply is a blog that shares my journey as a work and stay at home mum striving to live creatively and sustainably, teaching our children important living skills and doing it together, as a family.
