I‘m starting a new series here on Simple Mom. About twice a month I plan to feature a fellow blogger who has embraced the art of simplicity within his or her niche. And in so doing, I will offer an award sure to be coveted by many:
I read blogs about all kinds of topics, and the ones that pique my interest most are the ones who excel in their topic by writing in a down-to-earth way, with their readers in mind, with the goal of encouragement, help, and inspiration. They exude simplicity as its finest.
sim•plic•i•ty (noun): freedom from complexity; full of sincerity, naturalness; clarity of expression.
The first recipient of the Shoe of Simplicity is Rachel of Small Notebook.
Why she exudes simplicity:
- First off, she hand draws all the artwork on her blog. How cool is that?
- She and her husband are renting in order to wait for the best time to buy a home. I am ALL about that.
- She organizes her pantry with simple glass jars she already owns – simultaneously frugal and aesthetically-pleasing.
- She does simple little things that go a long way in terms of helping the environment and saving money – such as using microfiber towels instead of paper towels, composting with worms, line-drying her laundry, and making soap from scratch.
Hers is a relatively new blog, so give her some love and explore her place. I’ve enjoyed getting to “know” her since she started reading Simple Mom, and I hope this little award makes her smile.
Enjoy the shoe, Rachel!
