    Happy Nov. 12th.

    What Is This?

    I love living a simple life. Having what I need and less of what I think I want. Life for Rob and I is basic and we try to keep the drama at bay as much as possible. Our home is our sanctuary and everything has its place and every purchase we have made for our new life together...

    Oceans

    I live a simple life. Work-house, House-work. Family-house, House-family. But apart from that, something extra-ordinary that I can consider not simple. I have a wide ocean of emotions to explore with.
