Hi and Welcome.

I realize this page is supposed to be about me.  So, I’ll make it short.

I love God.  There are many things that I truly enjoy in life, but He is my everything.  He never ceases to amaze me through His creation and teach me through His creation.  My prayer is that you are pointed to Him while on this site.

Every time I look through the lens of my camera, I see things that I seem to miss through the business of life.  And when looking through my pictures, I find that there is this inexpressible and irrefutable reaction to the overwhelming beauty of what God has made. It’s in His beautiful sunsets and His rolling hills.  It’s found in the eyes of my children. It’s in the warmth of my husband’s smile. It really does not matter what is in my frame – I will always find God in there somewhere.

The overall theme of this blog is simplicity.  Not that I am suggesting to live less of a life, but to shift where you find your fulfillment, your value and ultimately what you treasure. Simplicity, I believe, reflects the overall nature of God.  It is from this belief that my husband and I have chosen to live our lives simplified, or in other words, getting back to the basics; living with less.

To fully understand our families story, I recommend starting at the beginning, “Why I Don’t Want to Be Happy” found under “The Purging.”

Hope you enjoy,

  1. Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to me! I realize I haven’t written a post in a while! Our family is in a three month transition right now – my husband being in Texas for military training and myself and the kiddos with my parents in Washington State.

    I really appreciate your kind comments about the trailer and how it has inspired you! Trailer living is definitely an adventure! At the moment though, we aren’t sure if we will be going back to living in Silvia… she’s been a great trailer for our family but it has become very difficult on the kids and, in return, difficult on Travis and I.

    Again, thank you so much for reaching out to me! I’m excited for you guys to start your own adventure!!!

    Would love to see what you end up living in!

    Less is more,
