Notes From a Blue Bike

Life is chaotic. But we can choose to live it differently.

It doesn’t always feel like it, but we do have the freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that our path better aligns with our values and passions.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life according to who you really are simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.

One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler

Released in 2011, One Bite at a Time is a simple living handbook. Tsh took her favorite ideas that she already wrote on Simple Mom, then breathed new life into them and reorganized them into 52 manageable chunks. (She basically turned this blog into her own personal checklist, because well, she needs a steady dose of inspiration, too.) Oh, and she also added about 50 percent more new content not published on the blog. Broken down into manageable chunks, this book provides with steps, tips, links, and motivation to slow down and simplify. Welcome to sanity.
