Welcome to the very first post on my shiny new blog! Where to begin!? I guess I'll start by sharing my goals for this project. I hope that this will become a place for sharing ideas, information, recipes, activities and tips for living a simple life. But what does that mean, exactly... "A Simple Life?" For some, it means living with less "stuff", or choosing green products and practices. For some it might mean finding ways to spend less money, or finding more free time to cultivate truly meaningful relationships. For me, it means all of those things and more.

In the coming weeks, I will be discussing tips for organizing a home with kids, juggling work and family, and the Simple Essentials Shopping List. I will also be sharing recipes for homemade cleaning products and homemade bath and beauty products. I will share my secret for how to have fresh, delicious (and economical) homemade bread when pressed for time, and I will be talking about backyard gardens, CSAs and fun, free things to do as a family.

Check back here often, and join my family as we continue our journey toward a more meaningful, satisfying life together.


  1. What a great idea for a blog, Jenney! I will be following eagerly.
