Years ago I had a friend, Marcia, who would kid around repeating her “princess” mantra, “Bring me, buy me, get me, take me, I wa-a-a-a-ant!” We laughed, thinking that would be great way to live. Little did we know, though a little more subtle, that life style would become a reality to today’s world! I don’t think it turned out quite the way we expected. We spend so much time “acquiring” we have little time to “appreciate”.

A blog I discovered, “No Sidebar” by Joshua Becker & Brian Gardner, introduced me to the idea “The white space in our life is where the magic happens.” Simplicity has always been an element of my design aesthetic. I’m known for advocating the K.I.S.S. method so it makes perfect sense to me!  On with decluttering, aquiring less, appreciating more!

What do you wish for?
