She has impeccable taste, a beautiful house, a relatable voice, and a unique perspective on living simply in our overly saturated, consumer-focused world. I loved reading her posts and looked forward to each and every one. And then one day, she just stopped. No warning. No goodbye. No […]

5 Reasons You Should Start a Blog http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2017/03/07/2258/ http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2017/03/07/2258/#comments Tue, 07 Mar 2017 23:53:30 +0000 http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/?p=2258 One night, back in March of 2013, I sat down and wrote my first blog post.

Laundry Room Plans http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2017/03/03/laundry-room-plans/ Fri, 03 Mar 2017 00:16:02 +0000 http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/?p=2856 I might be dating myself…but do you remember the movie ‘Dazed and Confused’? If not, here is the short plot line: coming of age story filled with good music, loads of teenage awkwardness and angst, all set in the backdrop the drug-induced seventies. It is a classic.

A Recipe for Not-Blogging Stew http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2017/02/24/2827/ Fri, 24 Feb 2017 06:50:24 +0000 http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/?p=2827 I know, I know…the inconsistency of my blog posting is killing you. One day I show up, promising to write more and be more a “professional” blogger and almost a year later — I’m finding it hard to eek out one blog post a month. Okay, admittedly…I don’t think anyone (except me) REALLY spends their […]

Giving Thanks for Things that Suck http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2016/11/25/2746/ http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/2016/11/25/2746/#comments Fri, 25 Nov 2016 11:54:48 +0000 http://homebodyandsoulblog.com/?p=2746 I know, I know…it is Thanksgiving. We are supposed to be super grateful today (and every day). And I am. I really am. But it has occurred to me recently, that some things just suck. And I want to talk about it. Poor timing? Probably. But this blogger needs to strike while the iron is […]

Yeah. Sorry about that. I feel like I should explain my prolonged blog-absence but, quite frankly, I’m exhausted just even thinking about it.

By tomorrow, I apparently meant next week. Why do I make such promises on the Internet? When will I learn? Anyway…today (which, technically speaking, is yesterday’s tomorrow) we begin. You can go ahead and file this breaking news under the heading […]

It is beautiful and lovely and we have barely set foot in it. In case you are new here, let me briefly explain… We live and work in China. We are from the States.
