Simple Lives Thursday – April 21

Welcome back to Simple Lives Thursday – a time where we share simple living tips, tricks and projects that we have going.

The two rules for linking to the blog hop are…

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, packaged foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

Now the fun part. Each week, we will be choosing five posts from the previous SLT to highlight each week. Those chosen will be promoted and linked on all five host blogs. We — Wardeh, Diana, Alicia, Mare and I — will select five posts each week that resonate with us and that we feel all of our readers should read. As a highlighted post you will also have the chance to win in special giveaways that we will be starting soon — another great reason to link up and share all that you do to live a simple and intentional life.
