Hey everyone! It’s been some time since I’ve written anything up here; however, there are some new changes to the Simple Lives Thursday blog hop. My dear, sweet friends Wardeh, and Alicia have decided to move on from Simple Lives. They’re moving in new directions, but I’m very excited that I’ve met Millie from Real Food for Less Money! We have a lot in common especially in cooking, economical, real food! How exciting, huh?! So anyway’s, the hop continues! Make sure to visit Millie at Real Food for Less Money!
It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all 4 sites! As a reminder, this blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, homeschooling, sewing, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it! If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it! If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!
Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules
1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole. Such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policeman, however, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.
2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.
3. No giveaway away or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

2. Make Your Own Insect Repellent by Nature Had It First. “There are natural alternatives that you can feel good about using. You may need to apply them a little more often but that is a small price to pay to enjoy the outdoors without the chemicals.”
3. Feeding Animals by Semi Off Grid. “Free ranging not only helps our feed bill but also lets our chickens be chickens. ”
