She said, "As a generation of mothers, there is a trend calling us back to our roots. There’s something in many of us that longs for a more traditional sort of homemaking — from scratch, and back to the basics."
That's me! That's what I've been working on for the past year...especially this year. My 2009 motto is PEACE, and I know to find true peace in my life, I must go back to the basics. I've been working hard at it, and I must say it's been an amazing experience. I've loved every minute of stepping away from from "THINGS" that don't create a peaceful, simple, basic life.
I've always had a fascination with history, especially pioneers. I'm drawn to their simplicity and homemaking skills, but so intrigued by their joy and happiness. There is something to be learned from the past. More is not better, faster doesn't mean it's worth it, and easy doesn't mean it's right.
Simple Mom will post one post per week (Mondays) dedicated to the simple steps behind a home management responsibility — this series will be called Back to the Basics. Each week’s post will be featured on Monday, except for this week’s post, which is up today! Today's post starts with simply finding your family's mission statement.
