Lenten Promise

In a weird way I have been waiting for Lent to come to this year.  I saw this project last year on the Internet towards the end of Lent and I thought what a wonderful project.  The thought of working toward simplicity in the name of Jesus appealed to me.  I have A LOT of belongings, my husband would argue to many belongings. 

When I first read about this project at August Fields, I was so inspired by Saras approach to simple living.  I started reading more and here I am on my own journey of simplicity and organization. 

I am excited to create my own list and begin my work.
