Did you know there's more to life than answering email and vacuuming LEGO? Of course you do. I love to talk about all that "other stuff" with some of my favorite people around the Internet. Together, we chat about food, good music, writing, books, bedtime routines, and the challenges of working from home. I also answer listener questions and share fun stuff I'm digging that makes my life a bit simpler... Join us—it makes you run faster; it makes laundry folding more fun.

The Art of Simple Podcast #73 with Tsh Oxenreider and Kat Lee

#73: In a five-foot tree

It’s always a treat to talk to my friend (and AoS contributor) Kat Lee! I was glad to get in a last-minute conversation with her before we hit the skies and head across the world… In this episode, we chat about RISK: new school year beginnings, moving, modeling the art of taking risks, letting our kids take risks, routines and rituals and traditions, one-on-one time with our kids, and getting behind their dreams. We also talk about important stuff, like, where’s the line between okay and not okay for listening to Christmas music?

And because several of you have asked—yep, I’ll do my best to keep recording podcasts as we travel. They may be a wee more sporadic, but I love doing them, and they’re a great excuse to connect with a friend or two. So never fear, the podcast is here… to stay.
