For a while now I have been toying with the ideas of functionality vs. commercialism, and of how we can live the simplest lifestyle possible in an urban environment. I feel like so much of what I am programmed to want for my family is wasteful and unnecessary. Not just the big house, nice cars and proper furniture- but even pet ownership and a grassy green lawn.
So this month I am asking myself:
How simply can we live in the city? How do we properly balance function and beauty? And how do I make healthful choices for my family while still finding time for myself?
