throughout the past year we have been trying to simplify our lives a bit, getting rid of things that aren't necessary as well as extra clutter within our home. more and more camden and i have dreamt of our lives being simpler, more minimalistic, and more clean. our first big step in this process came through moving and having to purge the things we could do without and only taking the things we loved or needed. this also meant however, that a lot of lifestyle changes have had to happen around here as well as sacrificing some of the things we've been used to having, such as a dishwasher and washer/dryer just for example. this past week we've made a few more big changes. camden was offered a promotion at work which, among a few other things meant a location change. luckily for us this means he is now working only less than two miles from home and has started commuting by foot to work. after a lot of thinking and debating we have decided to sell one of our cars as camden will be walking most days to and from work anyhow. also this week, we gave up cable which honestly was almost a harder decision for us than deciding to sell a car. however, after realizing just how little time we actually spend watching it, it suddenly seemed silly having it at all. a few more things will probably be changing around here soon but so far the adjustment hasn't been too hard. i'll keep you posted though . . .
