“There is nothing to compare with lavish simplicity.” – Roland Blythe wrote this in his journals about a year in the life of a parish in Suffolk.
I’m excited to introduce a brand new feature of Behind the Gate called Lavish Simplicity. You can find it as we begin each week, on Monday’s. Monday is a time to focus, to make our goals, and to remember to include time to savor the sweet things in life. It may be just a photo of simple beauty with a quote, a visit to a farm, or even a recipe. Something that is a celebration of the lavish simplicity that is all around us.
Won’t you meet me here on Monday’s at a place called simplicity? Don’t forget to leave a note and a linger before you start your week.
At long last I have come to learn that it is the sweet simple things in life that are the real ones after all.” -Laura Ingalls Wilder
