a little getaway

   

Devil's Den State Park for a long weekend with a quick stop at Crystal Bridges on the way down.

These people and this trip. It was delightfully cozy and easy, mostly unplugged and completely relaxing. We have been thinking and talking about the types of people we are (and want to be.) We are pretty simple people doing small things that, with any luck, will add up to a good life in the end. So much in life is far too complicated. Family and home should be uncomplicated, like this trip. And comfortable like these people.

I have been reading lots of websites and books about minimalism lately. Wishing and purging stuff and planning, feeling optimistic. It's Spring!
