Hi, I’m Paula and welcome to simple living!

Simple living to me is about sharing a delicious, nourishing meal made with homegrown or local produce with family and friends. It is that cosy feeling you get from a home that is cared for and loved. It is about slowing down and being mindful of the little moments.

I love to cook and bake, and I love to eat! Food occupies a large part of my day. I spend many hours reading about it, growing it, planning meals and cooking them for family and friends. I love how cooking and sharing a meal connects us to our past and our culture (and other cultures), keeping traditions alive and providing a daily ritual that nourishes and nurtures us.

But life is more than food. It is about community and your village. It is about nature and honouring and respecting where you live. It is about nurturing the home and those within it. I share my thoughts and ideas about all these things here. The simple things that inspire me, the moments of joy and contentment.

I live in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales with my family, where we grow vegetables and tend to a growing number of animals, and try to live a simple life.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing my journey!
