    Down On The Farm

    It is simple. It is pure, organic, unadulterated, fresh, in touch with the elements, with nature, with flora to delight the senses, and fauna that enchants and befriends in many gorgeous ways. I see myriads of stars, planets, shooting stars, satellites and other celestial bodies...

    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.

    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...
