National Simplicity Day is coming up on Sunday July 12th.
This is sort of a special "holiday" for us here at The Whiskey Porch because it's at the core of what we are all about. After all, our tag line is "cultivating contentment & possibility in a smaller & simpler lifestyle."
And, now more than ever, it just feels like we are all seeking refuge and inspiration to lift our spirits as we traverse this wild year of 2020. So it goes without saying, that finding pleasure and calm in simple ideas is something many of us are striving for now.
The celebration originated in honor of Henry David Thoreau, who lived in Concord, Massachusetts from July 12, 1817 to 1862.
