Our ABC of Simple Living? It’s about getting back to the basics. We strive to life a more simple, natural life. First, because it’s good for us and for the planet. But also because as Nonni to nine grandchildren we want to leave a better world for them! And that’s why we made an ABC of Simple Living to help keep us on track.
It’s our simple living baby steps! Simple and easy to remember. And even though we don’t manage to do everything on this list, it does help! Because simple concise goals are easier to put into practice. Giant leaps often make a pace that’s hard to keep up with. But baby steps? Well, even babies manage them, don’t they?
Our baby steps? They start with learning the ABCs!
