I “started” this journey back in June, and I was so motivated….

How many journeys start with great ideas, good intentions and even a solid foundation of knowing that it is a good way to view life,

I’ve often reminded people, especially Emma, that life is both long and short and we need to consider both.  By that I mean – splurge once in a while, because you may not have the opportunity to do it again.  That’s why I got my hair done when I was in Paris.  I haven’t been back since!

On the other hand, life can be long.  Both my grandmothers lived to be over 90 years.  Being broke, being overweight, staying safe… will lead me to a life of regrets for not doing the needed things as they were needed.

I haven’t blogged for a long time, but it is time to begin to participate in my journey.  I hope some people will be inspired to join the caravan, but a caravan of one or two is just fine too!

About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking! EDIT: 2021. I am not closer to my weight goal, but moving forward. The budget is still small. We are renting our homestead and progressing towards our family dream!
