Why a slow life?

Because life goes by too fast. We must be in a calm, peaceful state in order to really grasp and appreciate the beauty already in our life.

Why a simple life?

Because we can’t strive for slow without also striving for simple. It’s the simple things that matter: family, friends, a homecooked meal, a good book, a long walk, a hot cup of tea.

There are other blogs out there along these same lines, what makes this one different?

  • I am often anti-consumerism, but I don’t really fit in with the frugal crowd. Case in point: I spend a lot of money on home renovations and on food.
  • I like some elements of homemaking but I definitely don’t think that it is the be-all and end-all that some women make it out to be.
  • I practice attachment parenting. While this is not the focus of this blog, it undoubtedly permeates any postings related to children.
  • I am an Orthodox Christian. Again this is not the focus of this blog, but it is the basis for my life and some posts will reflect this.

About me

I am a wife, a mother, and a part-time mommy-tracked professional in the financial industry.

I have felt a growing sense of unease the past few years as I survey some of the meaninglessness of my life. Physically I want for nothing, and yet emotionally and spiritually I feel empty. I desire to shift my focus on the unseen things that truly matter instead of the tangible, temporal trappings of this world.
