When I say simple, I do not mean living without running water and electricity. Also, while, I will let you know about products I find helpful, I will never imply that you need to “bust the budget” to stock your kitchen with expensive labor saving devices…although if I find a self-cleaning refrigerator, you bet I’m sharing that one!
By simple I mean clearing your life queue of stress, expectations, over-commitment, and the lies we homemakers believe that make our job so much more difficult than it needs to be. I also mean using what you have at your place in life to make your job more manageable and your life more enjoyable.
I want to help you and me both regain the joy of taking care of our homes, the beauty of tending our husbands, the fun of raising our children. Because it is joyful, beautiful, and fun. Trust me.
