The days warm more slowly and the sun hides it's face earlier and earlier each day.
The return to our smallish and cozy house from a summer outside always causes me to want to clean and organize, purge what isn't needed, and streamline the stuff accumulated over many a month.
Over the years as our family has grown, and our little house has hugged us all a bit more closely, the return to simplicity has been one of necessity and great comfort in our lives.
Simplicity is fulfilling.
It is about living intentionally and with purpose.
It is about living with the things that you truly love and care about, and having a grateful heart that it is all enough.
Simplicity just oozes with contentment.
It really is a peaceful place to be...where your family, your routine, your home reflect your values.
So, we set out to enjoy all of these Indian Summer days while they last; setting out to conquer many a task that needs attention before the first snowfall.
I am paring down for a snug winter.
Looking for only those things that are truly necessary.
Purging and making room to breathe so that our home is more calm.
Getting down to the nitty-gritty of what is needed and what is not.
How about you?
Does Autumn just beckon a good and thorough cleaning and sorting...to make life a little more simple?
Wishing you all a happy Autumn day.
