I'm delving into the waters of blogville. Why you ask? Well, all these thoughts tend to keep me up at night. (Note the time of the blog entry.) Plus, organizing my thoughts enough to make even a semi-coherent paragraph or two about them helps manage them and keep them some what organized. This whole blogging this is brand new to me. I sort of follow a few blogs, and don't know a thing about managing mine, but hey, you have to start some where, right?
So what are all these thoughts about? My life and priorities, and trying to raise my children in the best way I know how. A big part of that right now is by trying to simplify and live more naturally, which to me, means having less STUFF. Man, that stuff can sure distract you from the real things in life. And living naturally to me means using as many natural materials as possible and less synthetically made items. Less medicines and more herbs. Less man made, more God made.
Some may call me a trend jumper. And that's fine, but it's actually been in my life and on my mind for a long, long time, but trying to implement it and learn, when so many wasteful and non natural ways have been a part of me as well has been challenging.
So there you have the whole "smunchy" thing. I'm aiming to be a more crunchy, granola type, because it just feels right for me and as something important to pass on to my children. But there's still a whole lotta smooth left, some I'm completely willing to give up, some...well, some I'm not sure I really want to. Mix a little smooth in with some crunchy and you have...smunchy. Any other smunchers out there?
