"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” -Laura Ingalls Wilder

I read the Little House books over and over as a kid. When my children were little we read the whole series. I loved how they seemed at the brink of survival so many times but always found ways to make do and even make the best of things. They didn’t have much materially, yet they had real moments of connection, family and friends.

I think I have been looking for the simple life ever since I first read the books.
