A lot has happened over the last 14 years, getting married, having children and building a house. The house was our life, put heart and soul into it, and have had amazing memories here. In the financial downturn, our priorities have changed. Wanting less, but feeling better about it. Wanting to get back to the roots of living simply. This Buy Local Challenge is definitely part of that movement for us. Relying less on big box stores, and only buying necessities. Supporting our small local economy rather then shopping endlessly online. Stripping away all of the un-necessary things that we used to rely so heavily on, and instead letting friends and family come first. The future looks bright when you start thinking in that realm.

Happy Friday, enjoy your time this Independence Day weekend!
