Hello, Dear Reader! So, who the heck is writing this blog? Well, my name is Reba Kennedy, I'm an official Baby Boomer who's over 50 and under 60 and that's enough about that. Ahem. I live a happy life here in San Antonio, Texas, with two great shelter rescue pups in a cute little cottage about ten miles north of the Alamo.
I began living a life of voluntary simplicity several years ago, as part of my Second Life career change from a twenty-plus year AV-rated lawyer to a professional writer. I started this blog in January 2006 in part because I needed to keep track of things I found on the web about this lifestyle in all its facets (food, money, health, fun, etc.). (There was no Evernote then!)
I also started this blog because I wanted to share what I was learning with others - like you, Dear Reader. To share, yes, but truth be told, hopefully also to support those who are finding new ways to live simply. Many are changing their ways because they've chosen a voluntary simplicity lifestyle for themselves. However, as we all know, in these past several years lots of folks are living on less because it's forced upon them.
