Contrary to popular opinion, you don't need a bucket-full of ducklings to have a magical spring celebration.
Okay, I know. There is no popular opinion of the sort. Well then, you don't need a bucket- (or basket-) full of chocolate, new toys and stuffed animals, or jelly beans either.
Yup. It's radical.
Over here we have made a habit of simple, meaningful celebrations that we enjoy more than any over-the-top, sugar-fueled gift-bonanza we could imagine.
And every year we take it down another notch – doing less, giving less, yet seeking meaning more – and every year we're surprised at how much more wonderful this celebration was than last.
Yes. Less really is more.
Less buying. Less consuming. Less perfection.
Less "keeping up".
By reaching for quality over quantity, creating new traditions, and simplifying a bit more each season you, too, can reclaim a little sanity in your celebration.
