Tsh is the founder of this blog and lives in Bend, Oregon with her husband and 3 kids. Her latest book is Notes From a Blue Bike, and believes a passport is one of the world's greatest textbooks.

Yesterday I started working on a post I’ll share soon; a massive link list of my favorite posts here on the blog since its very beginning, organized by “art” and “science” (I’ll explain why later).

Going back in time was trippy for all sorts of reasons, the least of which was witnessing the progress of both my writing style and the topics I cared about. When I started the blog, I had two kids—a barely three-year-old and a newborn (they’re now in third grade and kindergarten, and they have a three-year-old brother). A lot of what I wrote was me wading through the waters of the whole early motherhood thing, chronicling my ideas as I learned them.

My posts were originally much more about the science of living simpler—how to create an art cabinet for preschoolers, how to budget on an irregular income, and the like. The past few years, they’ve become much more about the art of simple living—why it matters, what it looks like for different people, how to do it like a sane person.

I love this blend on the blog; that stuff here is both about the why and the how. Reading through the archives gave me fresh ideas for future posts, both because I’m continuing to learn new ideas and because well, my mind has changed since some of those posts back in 2008.

But one thing I didn’t realize until yesterday was this—I haven’t asked you all for post ideas since 2009. Four years ago, I asked Simple Mom readers what they’d like to read, and you all/they gave me some great ideas. But I haven’t checked in again since to hear your ideas. That’s silly of me.

So, since it’s been a whole international move, cross-country move, and offspring birthed later, I thought I’d ask you all again: what would you like to read here?

I’d love to know if you have any questions or thoughts about the practicality of living simpler, what parts of my personal journey towards simpler living you’d like to know, and if you’re more inclined towards the more artsy or sciencey posts. (Categories are on the left sidebar on the blog, if you need to grease your wheels.)

I ebb and flow on topics, based on what interests me and what’s going on in my own life, but now that I’ve revved back up my personal blog, I have all reason to keep this blog focused on what the majority most want to read. This is an online space dedicated to saying no to the cultural norm of busyness, clutter, and conventionality, and yes to freedom, slowness, and grace. Let’s celebrate those priorities together.

So. What would you like to read? I’m open to hearing any and all future post ideas.

(And yes, I’ll be sharing a tour of our home soon-ish.)

  1. I would love to hear about how to match our personality bents with clutter free living. Maybe I should explain, I see these great organization blogs with all their ideas & think “I wanna do that.” But, that’s not me. It’s like when reading or hearing how someone parents or their marriage works–it’s for them & not for mr no matter how intrigued I am.

    I want to hear more on rhythms of the day, setting up shop with pauses. How to leave room in our closets not to fill them, but simply to make room. How then to translate this to our children.

  2. One thing I’ve been curious about is what you pay your nanny. Paying and arranging for childcare is one thing that makes my life complicated. I don’t have any family in the area whatsoever, so usually our only option is hired help. How do you keep this simple with a modest budget when most nanny’s want $15-20 an hour? Curious what you do here.

    I’m also curious what your kids/family eat when you eat (ate?) paleo. How’d you keep that simple?

  3. I prefer more of the art rather than the science posts.

    That said, I would love to hear about how you organise your online clutter – email, photos, and especially how you organise your different writing ideas.

    I also love Kamille’s idea above of personality and organisational strategies – I think they are very much intertwined.

  4. I enjoy both the art and the science. Doing the ‘how’ is much easier when you understand the ‘why’.

    I am aware that in my pursuit of simpler living, even to my extended family I am seen as unconventional and just ‘trying to be different’. Posts on how to explain simple living to others, how to deal with negative attitudes and how to get people on board with your lifestyle choice even if they don’t plan to do it themselves, would be great.

    Also, lots of simple living books talk about de-cluttering on a major scale, halving the kids toys, for example. I only have a baby and I’d prefer not to have to get to that point. Prevention is better than cure, right? So maybe tips for newly weds and new parents on how to set up home in a way that prevents getting to the stage where a massive overhaul is needed.

    • Love those, Jessica!

    • Yes! Jessica’s second paragraph is what I was trying to say in my comment, but she has the words I couldn’t quite find.

    • “… even to my extended family I am seen as unconventional and just ‘trying to be different’. ”

      Yes! I feel like I’m in the same boat! My boyfriend with whom I live seems to understand how I choose to raise my daughter, but when I hear him say out loud to other people what we believe and what we do, I feel like all they’re hearing is, “wanna-be hipsters, wanna-be minimalists, wanna-be unconventional parents, wanna-be green hoopla, etc.”

      And, really, I feel like I’m just beginning the transition into simple living. But when I talk about Tsh’s tip of storing half of my daughter’s toys and recirculating them every six months, I get the blank stares and the questions of “you’re taking your child’s toys AWAY?!” But I’m not doing it to be mean, I just know she has her core set of toys she always plays with and others that have lost their appeal because she sees them all the time.

  5. I would love to read about the mix of the two – so how having a rhythm to the day can simplify life, but also planners/printables for actually making that happen. Or how to slow down life and NOT schedule too much… :)

  6. I would like to know more about how you balance relaxing/playing with your kids with keeping on top of household tasks. I’m fairly organised but get frustrated that I can’t make progress with chores when I spend time with my family (3 kids under 5). There needs to be 2 of me, one to ‘work’ and the other to ‘relate’…

    • This for me too!

      • Me three. I have a large family daycare at my house so my days are chalked full of relating to all the little ones and meeting their needs. I have to be so purposeful to make time to continue my journey of simplifying our home and life and its not an easy balance. I am at the beginning of that journey so I am still wading through boxes and shelves of stuff, have to touch and decide about every item. It is time consuming! Any tips would be great.

    • Amen to this. I often feel playing with my little ones works in direct opposition to maintaining a clean orderly home. But I grew up in a very clean well-run home where my mom rarely played with us. But we ate fresh canned fruit in the winter and homemade jam year ’round!

      • THIS. IS. WHAT. I. NEED!!!!
        I have 3 kids under 7 and one on the way and feel like I have to work all the time just to keep my head above water. There’s only so many hours in the day! How do I make time for everything and spend time with my kids? What does a healthy daily schedule look like in this season?

    • Yes, yes, yes! We need this.

  7. I want to see the inside of your trailer office out back. A tour as to how you have made it into an office. What make is works and are there any draw backs or things your don’t like about it?

    • Ha! Fun idea, but you might be a bit disappointed. (Read: table, bench for sitting. That’s about it.) But I’ll still try and share it on the home tour posts. :)

  8. I would love to hear about MIT’s again since it seems I never have lack of seeing multiple projects that need to be done on any given day. Then I get frustrated with myself if i do not reach my goals. I have read your book twice and am doing the clean sweep right now! I am creative and one project seems to lead me to a other “idea” for another project = sidetracked mommy. I’m glad I have passion to simplify but need guidance on execution. Thank you for all that you are and what you share with us.

  9. I’d love to see how you simplify time. I have 2 boys, a dog and work 3 regular part time jobs and a few others that are here and there. Both my kids are in sports – only 1 a season, but I feel like I am always flying. I blog, teach a Sunday school class and also do some volunteer work here and there. To be honest, this weekend was the only time all summer I’ve really relaxed and probably part of the reason is because I was sick with a really bad cold and I didn’t have a choice. lol My oldest is a sophomore and it just seems to be going way too fast, but I have no idea how to slow things down. I’m a slower paced person naturally and I find the hurry, hurry, hurry that I have to do exhausting, so ways to slow down time would be awesome!

  10. Time management and dividing household tasks with the desire to slow down and spend time with my kids as mentioned above. I work full time out of the home and have two boys (3 and 11 months) so they still need a bit of hands on and supervision.

    Also, dealing with the emotions that come from having and doing less. Even though I desire a slower pace and more simplified life I still feel bad when my boys miss out on certain experiences that others have.

    I’m also interested in hearing about beginning homeschool. My husband stays home with our boys and, even though I’m curious about homeschooling, he isn’t so sure. How do you go about choosing a style of schooling and balance the want of a shorter school day with making sure your children are gettin enough academically.

    • “Also, dealing with the emotions that come from having and doing less. Even though I desire a slower pace and more simplified life I still feel bad when my boys miss out on certain experiences that others have.”

      Great idea, Erin…

    • Yes. This has been a quandary of mine as well.

  11. Artsy, please! Thanks for all you do.

  12. Thanks for all the great posts Tsh, I love Simple Mom just the way it is!!! As far as some new topics, well I can always read about time management, organization, home organization. I love menu planning & batch cooking series at Simple Bites and I love your docket list – they are really really helpful. I think these are all great topics and that we all could use some help with this. :)

    • I agree: I can always read about time management, organization, home organization. I love menu planning & batch cooking series at Simple Bites and I love your docket list – they are really really helpful. I love the hows…and different takes on what works for people. That’s what brings me back to simplemom.

  13. I think the “science” posts are still important for families just starting (like mine….an almost 2-yr-old and one on the way). I think you have a unique perspective now looking back on that time on what is actually important, what really works, etc. to encourage younger families still in that phase.

    I know there is a wide range of “simple moms” reading, all with their own preferences, so it’s hard to supply what everyone wants all the time. I guess just personally, though, I am more likely to sit and read through a “science” post than a poetic “art” post at this point in my life!

    • Yes, a good reminder! I think I’ve realized my “sciencey” posts came from a place when I had little bitties (my kids are still small, but it’s not as crazy, I don’t think). I needed practical in my life, so that’s what I wrote.

      I try to keep the Monday benediction—definite “artsy” posts—short and sweet for that reason. I picture mamas like you. :)

      • There’s so many of us out there just starting out! Please don’t loose the how-to science related posts. But I like the artsy things, too. :)

  14. I started following Simple Mom at just about the beginning, and our parenting seasons have been in similar places as your blog has grown and changed. I love the evolution into both the art and science of simple living, and I would love to see it continue to be a balance.

    That said, it seems I always revisit the posts about things like no-poo (can’t even tell you how many times I’ve forwarded a link to that one) and tutorials of one kind or another. And I get loads of motivation from the spring cleaning challenges.

    Tsh, you are my girlfriend who always has a great little piece of advice or solution to a little parenting/household dilemma, only minus the part where we sit around for coffee (or something stronger) while our kiddos run amuck. I look forward to Simple mom every morning.

    • Aw, thanks, Kerstin! That means a lot.

    • Yes, this is great. I could have said the same thing (though less well). SimpleMom has been with me though my parenting journey and is my #1 resource. I soooo needed those science-y posts in the early years and now the philosophical posts recharge my batteries.

      That being said, I sometimes get “over-full” of the big ideas and need the practical how to’s (like this week’s posture tips!). I would love your weekly posting routine to include how-to’s and basics again. Even if it is re-posts from the archives. There are many new mamas that need the basics and the rest of us need the reminders.

    Both! Personality-wise I tend toward the “science-y” posts, as I have always enjoyed being inspired by new creative ideas, and modifying them to make them my own and best meet my family’s needs. I want to read more about how to cultivate a “spirit of community.” In pursuit of simplicity, we have pulled away from the crowd and focused on our central family unit; but in doing so, it seems I have unintentionally isolated myself. Now I find that I crave a connected “community” feeling that seems to be missing in our culture. I enjoy your “artsy” posts because they remind me that I am not alone in this struggle to be excellent in a lazy society, and have more by intentionally doing less. When I read about the “human-ness” of your discoveries along your life-journey and see the comments of like-minded travelers, I have a gauge of sorts for assessing my own progress. It helps me find a balance between criticizing myself too harshly, and becoming too comfortable with my little routine. The “science-y” posts keep me moving forward, and the “artsy” posts keep me centered. Thanks for “knowing” me; although we’ve never met.

  16. We’re in a season of life that isn’t very simple… We are balancing job issues, a preschooler and a terminally ill parent. I think I’d like more on caregiving in the broader sense, beyond parenting…

  17. I’d like to hear examples of your daily schedule, How do you fit in homeschooling, blogging, organization of the home with 3 kids?

  18. I’m a mama to two girls, 9 months and 3. I worked full time outside the home until my second was born, then part time briefly, and am now a SAHM. This is a whole new world! It’s one I’m grateful to finally be able to live in, but it has been more of an adjustment than I ever realized it would be. I’m pretty sure you haven’t had this experience exactly, but between you and all your lovely contributors I hoped it might be a topic someone could share about! Also love the above ideas of sharing simple living decision with others in a way that doesn’t come across as preachy. And bring on the Myers-Briggs talk! I love how it keeps coming up on the podcast :)

  19. One of the things that I love about your blog and your podcast is the adult conversation. You make me think. Your blog inspired me to do a whole 30 which changed my whole view of food, and your podcast inspired me to read the Harry Potter series.

    I like that your little knook of the internet is a place for me to come and get some adult conversation and challenge my brain some.

  20. I enjoy both the art and the science! I adore your Monday posts…seriously crushing on those and can’t wait to read them to begin my week.

    My biggest struggle right now is that as I organize and simplify I find I’m…antsy. It’s a great feeling when I give things away, organize a closet, or some other task and then I find myself struggling with feeling antsy to DO something. My friend says I’m a great doer but not a great be-er.

    So…how do you still your doing mind to just be?

  21. I’d like to hear perspectives from older moms, moms of older kids, moms who have adult children (even grandchildren) as well as young kids still at home. I currently have a 21, 18, 16 and 9 year old at home( homeschooling the younger 2, youngest adopted form foster care 2 years ago)– 4 distinct stages of life and I want to have a meaningful relationship with them– and my husband– as well as keep the whole household running. When they have their own lives and schedule , but also contribute to the household operations, and need a lot of advice on money, decision making etc. I don’t find many people writing about this stage. I’ve found a lot of things that work, but need encouragement on how to take care of it all and myself at this stage.

  22. I lean more towards the ‘art’ posts rather then the ‘science’ though I love the balance of the two. There seems to many ‘this is the best way to do____’ and I appreciate the why behind the how and the real-life stories. How simplicity plays out in a variety of life situations and children’s ages/education/etc.
    I’d love to hear more on self-care, mama refreshment and choosing what is the best way to spend ones’ time.

    Monday posts are one of my absolute favourites, a deep breath to start the day and week with.

  23. I would like to see more opportunities for accountability like the spring cleaning. I’d love to see an accountability for money management or self care. I also appreciate the posts on working with your husband, as my husband and I work as a team in work and family. In fact throw in the Myers Briggs and working together and this INFJ married to an ESTP would love to see how you put it all together. Thanks.

  24. I would like to hear about some late bloomers. When you realize you have bought into the frenzy and how you make intentional choices from where ever you are. No matter the depth of the fall from where you actually want to be or where you intended to be. How do you evaluate, restructure and persuade your team to get on board?
    How do you stay intentional when old habits stick hard and your tempted to fall backwards. Back into choices that might even be good , but not the best.

    I so enjoy reading simple mom and appreciate the transparency of each post

  25. I definitely tend towards the “science” posts. Searching for words here….I feel like some of the artsy posts, in an effort to not leave anyone out, tend towards “feel good”, “believe in yourself”. I think I would like them more if they were more “Christian”. Hmm….I hope that’s coming out right! I know there are lots of people who read this blog who aren’t Christian….just trying to explain my reasons.

    • I know what you mean… It’s quite intentional that posts aren’t overtly faith-based, but it does naturally come out some, since I’m writing what I really believe and, well, my relationship with Christ plays a huge part of my worldview. But this blog is welcome to absolutely anyone, regardless of what they believe, and I’d like to keep it that way as best I can.

      It’s a delicate balance, but in my being able to stay honest with readers while still making sure the majority feel welcome, I keep my faith-related thoughts more descriptive, while being more prescriptive with the felt-needs issues.

      Does that make sense?

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.

  26. I love when you talk about why being simple is important. We all need to remember the reasons why you share all your wonderful insights and ideas in the first place, because sometimes we get too carried away with life to keep things simple, and you are our mentor. You center and ground us. Thanks for everything, I love to read your blogs.

  27. Maybe a top 10 posts or maybe your favorite ones regarding your journey to a simpler life, or even your favorite posts that helped you feel you were making progress toward a simpler life. Just a few ideas/thoughts.
    Hope it helps with the decision process.

  28. I would love to read more about how to not get into any kind of competition while simplifying. There are so many resources out there that talk about simplifying that you almost always feel like you are not “Simplifying enough”. And that’s of course counter-productive. It can also make you feel guilty at times for not eating everything homegrown or having every single one of your few toys hand carved ;-)
    Thanks for a great blog!

    • It definitely feels like a ridiculous competition, doesn’t it? Like, who dies with the least amount of stuff wins? Sigh… so silly. I know what you mean, though. :)

    • “There are so many resources out there that talk about simplifying that you almost always feel like you are not “Simplifying enough”. ”

      That’s exactly my sentiment. That’s why I love this blog so so so much more than others out there. All the editors write as though they’re sharing what works for them, and it’s never prescriptive. The blog just has the feel of “take what you need, leave what doesn’t work for you behind.”

    I would love to read about:
    – your home renos(!)-every. single. room. (of course!)
    – how you manage your current house (how your simple living is…well…lived out),
    -an update on your paleo lifestyle (surprises, what you found hardest, what works/what doesn’t, how your family reacted, did it simplify your eating?),
    -how you carve out/prioritize your self care

    (In your personal blog it would be kinda neat to hear how you Live out a Christian life—-something I struggle with–how do you put Jesus first when there are 3 poopy bums, sick kids and laundry? How do you teach your kids about Jesus?How do you show your Love?)

    Love your blog and how it had grown and changed since 2010 (when I started following),
    Sarah

  30. Hmm…this is good, Tsh. Definitely some food for thought for that October slot

  31. A couple of things I would love to read about are being an entrepreneur and having littles around. (I opened up a violin studio for teaching at the same time I gave birth to my 3rd son!).

    How to keep ourselves balanced with family and our life long goals. (I consistently take auditions for the performance aspect of my career.)

    I would also love to hear about different parenting challenges. For example, we are getting our eldest tested for gifted-ness and while it’s awesome it’s SO challenging because it’s not spoken about all too frequently. There’s also a host of other behaviors that accompany this particular aspect of a person that can be very challenging.

    Well those are my 2 cents! Thanks Tsh! Love your blog.

  32. I love your blog and your ideas but rarely comments because I feel like a simple mom fraud :) I read regularly, love your view points and your ideas and then add them to my never ending/imaginary to do list…which you guessed it, never happen. I would love to see some posts or guidance on how to take the idea/art to the applied science in baby steps for those of us wanna-be simple mom’s who just can’t quite seem to get there. Keep up the great work….I’ll keep reading no matter what you’re writing about!

  33. This is a little embarrassing, but a grammar refresher post could be helpful on one of your intellectual grownup days. I don’t have a blog or anything, but if someone edited my journal it would be ugly. :) Love the variety on Simple Mom!

  34. I would also like to read about parenting challenges. I have 3 girls..12, 9, and 5. I would really love advice on raising girls (especially teen girls!) in today’s world to be kind, have a healthy body image and to live intentionally.

    • Like this! Also talking about the journey/adventure of a mother/daughter relationship. My girlie is 7.

    • I love the idea of parenting challenges! The NYT Motherlode blog does a “parenting quantry” series, where readers write in with their challenges and then other readers give ideas/responses. Those tend to be BIG DEAL issues and controversial topics. I would love a similar series here – where readers could throw out their best ideas for whatever the topic is:
      – Managing TV/Screen Time
      – Dealing with the pre-dinner witching hour
      – How to handle Mean Girls
      – Other reader topics

  35. Are there any tax implications for homeschooling? We’re just getting started and I’ve never seen that addressed.

  36. I appreciate and am deeply grateful for the wisdom and clarity of each Simple Mom post. How does a simple mom approach the teen years? I have three sons — 18 , 16 and 13. It is a time when my sons begin to explore the world in new ways. How do we, as parents, respond with ease, grace, strength and love?

  37. I am trying to incorporate a more free trade conscious shopping approach to the way that I make purchases for our family. However I feel absolutely overwhelmed by it all. Sometimes I feel like I have to spend a week researching brands and products before I can make a simple trip to the store. I’m exaggerating of course, but I would really love something like a beginner’s guide to being a conscientious shopper. I love Simple Mom and all that you write. Thanks!

  38. Tsh,
    I’ve been looking for posts on simple living + raising special needs kids. I would love to hear perspectives on play, exercise, outdoor time, and diet in balance with school, IEP’s and/or private therapies for ADHD, sensory issues and learning disabilities. I read and enjoy your blog regularly – thank you for the work you do here!

  39. I like both the art and the science, like most others. I think I need baby steps and that is what I would like to read about.

    have a unique situation being that I travel a lot for work, between 10 and 15 days a month on average. We are really trying to simplify our lives, because of all the chaos my travels create. We have a 21 month old little girl and I guess I don’t even know where to start. I have your books and we’ve de-cluttered and organized and yet I still feel like things are much more complicated or busy than they need to be.

    I would like to read about how you do it; live your life, travel when you need too, cook, clean, and simplify. For me it seems like a grandiose dream, shimmering just out of reach of my reality I guess. When I am home I seem to be catching up and spending time with my DD and DH and we’re at the Farmers Market or the park or spending time with family. Then, I’m gone again.

    Anyway, your website is a calming influence and it shows me that it is possible to simplify and live the way we talk about living, it will just take some time to get there, but we will!

  40. I love both the art and the science posts! I really hope to hear a lot about how the whole traveling with kids goes–like what are going to pack for them, how you’ll do schooling on the road. Oh and I would love more about what books you’d are reading with your daughter right now. I love the book suggestions that you do. I’m so glad that Fall means hearing more from you on the blog and the podcast!

  41. I commented on some great ideas above. Two specific requests:
    – How to manage activities/sports with simplicity. I know some families opt out completely, but we WANT to participate with our school/social/church/sports communituies. How do you balance it?
    – Managing adult friendships when the kids don’t get along (bad personality match between kids or due to vastly different parenting styles). And vice versa – navigating difficult adult relationships for the sake of the kids.

  42. I think the thing that brings me back to this blog day after day is the nice mix of artsy and sciencey posts. I like the reminders about living slowly and intentionally, but I also enjoy the specific ‘how to’ posts of aligning our lives to allow this. I think this blog, the podcast and the communities surrounding both sort of, I don’t know, give me permission to dive into this lifestyle that feels so natural to me. I don’t comment or engage much, but knowing that others are craving and embracing this idea of simple living is so refreshing!

    If I had to pick specific topics:
    -living frugally (both the how and why)
    -decluttering (how to and moral support to charge forth)
    -simple living with a wee one (we’re welcoming baby #2 in November)
    -how to establish and foster a simple living mindset in our children
    -typical days in your life

  43. I know I’m not the only one, but I actually don’t have kids, and I LOVE your blog! I definitely love the ‘artsy’ posts,though I so appreciate your ‘science’ and ‘simplicity’ posts as well. (Sorry I’m generalizing there). Especially in lieu of your upcoming book, I would LOVE to hear more about your writing process, how you’ve learned to be a better writer, and what you’re reading these days. I really enjoy your featured monthly book. I also really liked the idea someone had above of how you organize your writing ideas. I must say that I have been so inspired by your podcasts as well! I drive back and forth from Kansas to Texas (we are relocated for my husband’s job) a lot and your podcasts have been my staple for the long driving hours. Thanks again for your words – blessings!

  44. So many good topics in the comments above! I don’t think I could come up with something that hasn’t already been said.

    Although, I will always push for more podcasts — during Tsh’s Fake Break, I went through all the archives and now, since they come out every other week, I have that same feeling like when I’m waiting for my paycheck to be deposited, haha.

    But, I like the idea of accountability, especially when I seem to find myself going into a slump every few weeks, usually after a big project has been completed and I can’t get up the energy to find another to work on.

    One thing that I love on the Simple Mom Facebook page is Prerna’s fill-in-the-blank prompts. I’m really glad for that added level of interaction. Simple Mom (all the editors and contributors), keep up the good word! Although the comments could be filled with suggestions for improvement, I hope you know how wonderful you all are and how much I appreciate what you’ve done and the community you’ve created!

  45. Hi there,

    I really enjoy all your money management posts. You all write a lot about getting out of debt once you’re pretty deep into it. Since hindsight is 20-20, would you be able to write a post on “Things You Wish You Had Done Pre-Debt” or something like that? I know many of you have college debt, so maybe not that.. but like… ways to get around that debt that everyone seems to get to when they’re in their mid twenties, or DINKs – Double Income No Kids- or something. I’m a little younger than your usual audience, but I think it would be super interesting.

    Also, I like posts with your family stuff in it. I like hearing all about how your family stories relate to bigger picture / how-to posts.

    Love your site. Will continue to read regardless, just some suggestions.

  46. Hi Tsh! I do enjoy the art posts but think I’m drawn most the science ones – the how-to’s. Those are what drew me to your blog originally. The artsy ones I find myself reflecting on only as I am sat reading them. The science ones prompt me to get up and do something! That’s just me. So, perhaps a good blend of both! Thanks for this wonderful blog! Blessings, Laura in Mozambique!
