1337 Family

I have mentioned it many times before that my online presence in the past few years brought many wonderful people into my life that I am proud to now call friends.

Last week Works made a stop on our island during their epic journey in which they are planning to visit all state parks and live life simple and rich. I adored them even as I followed their adventures through their photos and website. But it is still amazing how we clicked as soon as we shook hands and became friends over some great burgers Joshua served up and a hike. Best of all our sons had a great time playing together.

They are such inspiring and fun family. I really love how passionate Joshua and Jessa are about making the most of this beautiful world, loving and enjoying it fully every day while having only a few possessions and so many amazing memories. So much so I decided to declutter my life and get rid of everything that does not serve me. I locked myself up in a walk in that I share with my husband and I went through all my clothes. Two hours later I managed to throw away two credit card receipts I must have hidden so hubby wouldn’t know that I went a little overboard at the outlet mall. Clearly I am work in progress…

As with all other times when I have the most amazing company and great adventures I completely forgot to take any photos to prove it. Lucky for you, Works recently told their story to Dark Rye Magazine and here it is:

Happy Travels my dear friends!

    Wow. Looks like a great idea. I’m just too chicken to do it – maybe watching too much Dexter and Criminal Minds has something to it too.

    And, sista…I have a big fat zero issue going through de-clutter at home. My husband on the other hand…Freaks out when he sees me “cleaning”.

      I would have no problem decluttering my house of my husbands stuff. And toys. But somehow I am holding on to my skinny jeans I have not fit into since 2011…

    I declutter every few months. Clothes, toys, stuff. It’s good for the soul and home. Good on you!

    I totally understand the inability to declutter. My home is in desperate need of it. I loved the video and I think we all dream of doing it but society makes us feel crazy for wanting to…

    I am in declutter mode right now. I find it super-hard to let go of things. I go through the whole ‘what if I need it again?’ drama with everything.

    I declutter at least twice a year, especially the kids rooms and closets – they accumulate so much stuff it’s not even funny!!!

    Delcuttering is my therapy. It really makes me feel good!
    I saw this video from another link you had – what an amazing story they are living. Inspiring.

    I can de-clutter everything but my shoes. Some I haven’t worn in years but – someday.

    Decluttering is so therapeutic! When you declutter your space, you really declutter your brain and leave space to focus on the things that really matter!
