If you follow our Facebook page, you might already know that Brooke at Slow Your Home is one of my favorite bloggers. I’ve chosen several of her pieces as my FB lunchtime read of the day–because she’s smart, practical, honest, and down-to-earth on the subject of creating a better life through simple living.
I loved her most recent post on how easily social media can have us slipping into dissatisfaction with our lives and homes–because we lose sight of the truth that all those perfect images we see are not the true reality of anyone’s life.
So, I was more than pleased when Brooke asked if she could feature us on her blog. (OK, after I responded to her call for suggestions of people to feature for her Simple Living in Real Life series and said, “Us!” )
As long-time readers know, we’ve struggled at times with reconciling our love of home design with our desire to live a simple, sane, and meaningful life–and that’s the focus of our interview with Brooke. If you’d like to see the interview, please click here.

Wishing everyone a week with peace and moments of joy. We’ll be back soon with some updates on our summer projects.
As always, we struggle a bit to find a balance between doing projects and blogging about them. You can see that we’ve been pretty busy with the doing and have fallen behind on the blogging about the doing. We’re not sure how fast we can get these posts together, but they’re all on the docket.
