Spirit: Simply is authentic and unpretentious. No-nonsense and never one for airs or embellishments, they are typically humble and modest. What you see is what you get. Simply loathes excessiveness, waste and clutter – both materially and psychologically. Deception and personal politics irritate them on the deepest level. What’s unnecessary is disheartening. Simply is a direct communicator. They express themselves clearly and candidly. They love to find out the story behind the story, get their point across, and be heard, and they won’t back down from an argument. In fact, they can be incredibly persistent and stubborn, to the point of becoming entrenched. For better or for worse, they’re great at cutting corners. Simply loves to find the most logical or ideal solutions – utility and purposefulness are at the top of their list. They are remarkably durable and hearty spirits. Simply has a keen way of knowing what’s most important or essential in every dimension and deeply relishes the basic necessities and pleasures of life. Simply has an appreciation for extravagant but prefers the unadorned.
Look & Feel: Adroitness, agility, allure, attractiveness, balance, beauty, cleanliness, ease, elegance. The proper fit and hang. Flow, warmth, comfort, harmony. Shapeliness, smoothness, style, suppleness, and symmetry.
Simply means to me: Enjoying the simple pleasures of life, appreciating what has been given to us in its truest form, honesty, purity and sincerity.
Love means to me: The gift that you long to give the world, as well as the gift that you long to receive.
I love: to love, babies, family, puppy breath, home grown veggies, the smell of a barn, my life, god’s grace, girlfriends, rosemary, rainy days at home, hugs, honesty, the warm sun on my skin, a good cause, the earth, comfy clothes, to laugh and to cry, where I live & where I came from, traditions, a good challenge, spell check, no make-up days, wine & popcorn, being needed, parties, being a mommy, wife, daughter & sister, vacations, bed time, the sound of my children’s voices, fresh air, quiet nights on the porch, home… to be loved.
What I value the most about the place I live:that I am surrounded by good country people with family morals and that my kids have the freedom to be kids.
My favorite fabrics, textiles & textures: cotton & linen
My definition of beauty is: something that makes me smile
What are some of your favorite words: mommy, home, thank you, I love you
I am impressed by people who: are fighters, never give up, and accept every new day as a blessing from God
