I also hope you will be able to join us on Friday at The Briar Patch. The fun begins at 5:30 PM, and we’ll have a poetry reading, an art activity for children in honor of the The Art Walk events, and a signing. I don’t know how well my son is going to sign those books, but, by golly, he’s going to try.
After two years of living my life more on my own terms and learning to live much more frugally, I have my own list of advice to offer those who may be facing a similar decision or just may want to live more simply. I hope this helps others. I hope you find one or two or six things that will make a difference for you.
