The message is clear: Thank you for being my friend! Endearing quotes tell it all, such as:
* "Your friendship makes me feel good about myself."
* "I love tea for two with you. Our dreams rise like steam from the teapot and make their way to the sky. Tea with you means we can dream for silly things, reminisce about happy things, or cry over sad things."
My Sweetest Friend also includes fun recipes, such as "Mimi's Sticky Fudge," and lists, from "What every big girl needs........." to "I'm Sorry for........." Her beautiful, cheery illustrations perfectly accompany the uplifting writing.
How can living with less contribute to a greater sense of fulfillment? It seems contradictory, yet the minimalist lifestyle, which focuses on scaling back your possessions and simplifying your life to just the essentials, achieves just that. Adopt minimal living, and you'll find that less is more:
More time because you don't waste it caring for and organizing stuff.
More space because you don't fill it with objects of marginal value.
More money because you don't spend it on unnecessary things.
More clarity because your mind isn't bogged down by the clutter around you.
More enjoyment because your energy is spent on experiences and connections.
Using decision trees, flow charts, icons, and other graphics, Less shows how minimalism can be applied to any area of life--including home, wardrobe, decor, cooking, cleaning, finances, and organizing your time--and how it can be adapted to suit your own goals and help you achieve your version of happiness.
