After a vacation spent living simply in our cottage by a lake, I find myself noticing many things I usually take for granted.
I've found a new way of looking at things. I think of things, stuff, as experiences - and that has led me to value them differently.
While I am drawn to minimalism, I do welcome new things into my life occasionally. But some things that make it to my wishlist seem to take up permanent residence, and still never get bought. What is it that makes things valuable enough to buy, in my mind? And what if I try another way of deciding what gets to the top of the list?
