Our blog post over at Miss Minimalist went live this morning, and we’re suddenly seeing tons of traffic from new viewers! To those new viewers, welcome! We’re happy you could find us and hope you’ll stay with us and enjoy following our path to a simpler, more fulfilling life!
To our regular readers who may not know (ahem: she’s on our Resources page 😉 ), Miss Minimalist is a blog that has, alongside a few others, inspired us to undergo this journey of downsizing and living a purposeful life. It has been and continues to be a great source of inspiration for us; Megan in particular has pointed out ideas, philosophies, or even just other people’s anecdotes as we’ve gone down this path to finding what we truly NEED out of our lives. Her book, The Joy of Less, was named to Amazon’s “Best Books of 2010” and is a highly recommended read. Of particular interest (not that her blog doesn’t have TONS of information on its own) is her Monday blog post entitled “Real Life Minimalists“. It’s a collection of posts by people around the world who are, you guessed it: living the minimalist lifestyle in the real world. It’s a great place to go for inspiration or when you’re “stuck” on your path – seeing how others may have faced and solved the same problems as you is incredibly liberating. We’re not doing this alone!
Please go check out her blog, and stay tuned for more build updates – we’re getting close to what I’m hoping is going to be my favorite, most satisfying part of the build so far!
