Embrace a Simple Life Today

Have the courage to slow down and rest in commemoration of National Simplicity Day. Celebrated on July 12th, we honor American philosopher, Henry David Thoreau on this day who dedicated his life’s work to encourage others to live in a natural surrounding that yields simplicity in a busy era.
