At the beginning of the year when I decided to embrace a minimalist lifestyle I found myself searching for reassurance. I was pretty sure simplifying my life was the right thing to do, I just wanted to hear from the people who were already there and living it.
I began by Googling 'minimalism' and 'living with less' and I quickly came across Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus of The Minimalists. Their blog and books are about living a meaningful life with less and their inspirational words were just what I was looking for.
Last Friday I travelled to Birmingham to meet Joshua and Ryan at a book reading. I told them I'd parted with the majority of my clutter except my beloved deer collection and they were amused to hear my friends had expressed concerns about the welfare of my herd.
I think you would all agree that deer add value to my life, so for now they'll be staying. I wish you all a very Happy Fawn Friday!
