simple friday

a simple life.
i don't know about you, but i have a love-hate relationship with those words.
there are about fifty blog posts in my reader about simple living that are anything but.
dear ones, if the blog post is about making homemade yogurt, i guarantee you it will not simplify my life.

but simple living, natural parenting, and homemaking are all popular subjects to talk, write, and think about and i think for good reason.
i think we crave connection, physical touch, a sense of accomplishment.
finding joy and contentment in the small moments of life:
our hands caked with dough and flour from kneading bread 
mason jars lined up on the shelves and filled with brown sugar for baking
piles of fresh white diapers
baby legs spilling out of a onesie in the morning

i could get used to this kind of simple life.
