When we get caught up in worrying about who paid for coffee last, who’s turn it is to put the dishes away, how the gifts we give measure up to the gifts we receive, or expect the same amount of thanks that equals the time, talent or treasure we give, we feel slighted, resentful, and then reserved when it comes time to give again.

What if we just started giving for the joy of the give and never thought, “You owe me.” When we give freely, without expecting anything in return, we feel good, complete, and full. Instead of keeping score, giving for getting, or feeling let down when our gifts aren’t met with reciprocity, be the sun.

Be the sun friends. Let’s light up the sky.

Homemade strawberry tart with the strawberries we picked in the garden : we were so pleased with it that we invited friends over for le goûter. When you share food with friends it tastes even better ! #homemade #organic #strawberries #simplethings #simplelife #yummy #sharingwithfriends #thermomix

Look at this functional beauty from @pieropantrees that showed up in the mail yesterday. Thanks Emmet, this will be put to good use in the kitchen as well as serve as a inspiration for my own beginning carving. #realcraft #spoon #woodcraft #simplelife#homestead#makeyourown #igcommunity

I was gonna die young // now I gotta wait for you, honey.

I tried to post this on my story, but I'm not sure it worked. Anyway, here it is again. I do not use any cleaning products. We only use white vinegar, baking soda, and sometime a little castile soap. It works wonders and there is absolutely no need to buy all of the different brands. These brands have tons of harmful chemicals in them, that absorb into your skin. My family as been doing this simple cleaning method for over a year now and I love that I'm not exposing my kids to the unwanted toxins. Vinegar is great for windows, mirrors, and everything inbetween! #vegan #zerowaste #simplelife

No need to spend $$ to view engaging pieces of artwork! This weekend, I went to check out some amazing work by high schools currently on display at the Skokie Public Library. These kids can really tap into their creative subconsciouses...wow!
One in particular by a current student caught my eye. It's a digital photography piece with many interpretations. I'm no expert, but I think I see the juxtaposition of life and death, which brings up a dialogue about polarities in general.
Amazing work, @baongyen78 !
