Life was very simple when we lived in Haiti.
It had to be.
We had electricity very rarely, so we had no refrigeration, no television. There was bottled water for drinking and no running water in our house, but we collected rainwater for bathing and dishes and laundry.
Meals were delicious but very simple as well and lately with all the hub bub of our frantic lives Joshua and I decided to cut a few corners and just keep it simple for a minute. We aren't giving up internet or Facebook or fasting or detoxing or any other number of things that to me often just create more work when you're a working mom with little people to take care of. We wanted to stop having to come up with a daily menu and also cut back on our unnecessary spending. Its funny what things you realize you're wasting your money on when you take a minute to just consider.
There's a lot more going on than just food planning and money spending, but this is where we are starting. Just catching our breath and mapping out what really matters. Life doesn't have to be as complicated as we make it.
