I'm not gardening, I'm barely cooking, and i'm not even cleaning my own home....

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Inspired by Soule Mama.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. If you manage to find a few quiet moments, and feel like some simple living inspiration, pop on over to my Inspiring Reads page.

This month I particularly enjoyed following Bill Gerlach's two-week challenge to only eat food that had been grown and/or produced within 125 miles of his home.

This list of 20 Simple Ways to Save Serious Money by Becoming a Minimalist Family had me thinking that perhaps our family is a little more minimalist than I thought. 

I was also impressed by how well Tully, a young local friend, spoke to the media during the recent Newcastle leg of the Earth Relay. Here he is speaking about the world he wants to grow up in.

Have a lovely weekend. I'll be spending it packing for two weeks on the road. I'm a tad excited!
