harvest time

fall is here and everything slows down just a bit before the holiday hustle and bustle.
this year i went for a paired down look to my fall decor. more simple and not as many garlands and leaves everywhere. while it might be a time to celebrate abundance in your life and to be thankful for it i felt that i wanted to focus more on abundance in life not necessarily in things.
with the economic times we are living in and also trying to be more earth friendly alot of us are trying to pair down our lives and live more what i look at as an uncluttered life. and using and being happy with what you already have.

in this same vein, i came across a few websites in the past few days where people are documenting how they are getting rid of one item a day by taking a pic of it before it goes. am thinking this is a great way to not only say "yes" this can be done, but of also holding yourself accountable for doing it. so i maybe adding this to my blog as well. can i sustain that for a whole year? i'm sure i can. i'm thinking i will start on this coming monday, not sure what parameters if any i will set for it other than something that is obviously trash like a coke can doesn't count. any thoughts out there on this?

maybe you would even be willing to join me on this journey and challenge yourself to do the same.
