Living Simply

This past week, I was exposed to an entirely new community of women. Women who blog for a living! Of course, I have this blog and I try my best to blog different random happenings of my life between shoots, but it is sometimes difficult to do that when I am still working full time. Anyways, I found about 10 new blogs to start reading during my early morning blog "stalking" ritual before I go off to work. One of these blogs just happens to belong to a woman by the name of Tsh Oxenreider. Nope, I didn't forget the "i" in her name. She pronounces it Tish. Her website/blog is called The Simple Mom.  
This is straight from her site: 
"Simple Mom is a productivity blog for home managers. It’s like Zen Habits wearing an apron. If we want to get things done and be fully present for all the things that are most important to us, we have to keep things simple. 
When Mom is doing well, the whole family thrives. 
This blog is a catalog of the resources, tips, and lessons to make that happen. When we find solutions for cutting everyday life clutter, we’re taking care of our family, our home, and ourselves. I believe that when Mom (Dad, too) is doing well, the whole family thrives."
After I read some of her most recent posts, specifically the post from Friday, I thought to myself, some of these suggestions aren't just for people who already have children. They are for people who simply want to simplify their lives. Can't wait to see what she has coming up next week.
And because all blog posts are better with images, the image above is one of my favorite trees on campus. I will need to ask Randy what the name of it is and get back to you. I just LOVE when it blooms every year. And after I finished shooting some images of the tree, I ran into my friends Rebecca and Phil. They can never resist being in front of my camera! "Oh, Tira has her camera, can you stop and take a new picture of us"! Love you guys!
