What does Living Lightly Mean to You?

To me it means it means making life more simple, more fun and making choices in the things that I do with consideration for others and the environment around me. What you’ll notice here is that I’m not denouncing modern life in favour of “the good ole days.” Life was hard back then; just getting food on the table was a day-long chore – EVERY DAY. I’d starve for sure. Besides, inventions were invented for a reason right? 

I like to think I’m here to find that sweet spot between old-time values and modern living. I hope you’ll stick around and see how this works out for me … and maybe find some useful things you can carry into your own home.

How to Keep Ants Out of Your Hummingbird Feeder

Ants Can Make Your Hummingbird Feeder Disgusting and Make Hummingbirds Sick Keeping ants out of our hummingbird feeder has been a long-time wish of mine … until last month!
