I’m Jessica Norris, and I live in the Southern Highlands with my husband Stephen, and three beautiful kids: Isobel, William and Evelyn.
We’ve been working towards living more simply, which is something I stumbled across rather accidentally. We keep backyard chickens, we have a worm farm and a compost heap, we preserve some of the food that we grow, and we create things out of items that we have, or that other people have discarded. Our focus used to be living green and walking lightly upon the Earth. Now we are beginning to embrace other aspects of simple living and discovering that being frugal, re-making and repairing items, and generating less stuff in our lives is incredibly liberating!
Along the way I’ve discovered that I love to learn new skills, and that it’s fun to share my mistakes and my successes with the people around me who have similar interests. This blog will hopefully allow me to share more widely, and document our progress as we journey along the simple living path.
I hope you find something here to inspire you, or to amuse you. 🙂
