A Gift from Julie Magers Soulen

I've just downloaded my February desktop calendar from the lovely Julie Magers Soulen. They're free on her blog and you can have one too!

Because of my unabashed love affair with Colorado, Julie's stunning photographs of the western landscape (and its inhabitants) have a special place in my heart.

This photo, the background for the January calendar, reminded me so much of the long silent walk to my cabin back in the day that I nearly wept when I saw it.

You can see more of Julie's 'Photography of the American West' in her Etsy shop and at 1000 Markets.

I live small.
Always have.
I like it and am committed to keeping things simple.

Enjoyed this article on Rowdy Kittens
on how to deal with minimalist naysayers.

Best advice when dealing with naysayers of any kind:
"You don't have to live life the way others expect you to."

She's Baaaack!

{well, actually I've been here all along}

The lure of the blog can no longer be resisted.
I'm ready to give it another go.

No particular reason for the photo. I just like it.

Okay, now I have to think about what to do next.
