About the book:
Life is chaotic. But we can choose to live it differently.
It doesn’t always feel like it, but we do have the freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that our path better aligns with our values and passions.
The popular blogger and founder of the internationally recognized Simple Mom online community tells the story of her family’s ongoing quest to live more simply, fully, and intentionally.
Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.
Entertaining and compelling—but never shrill or dogmatic—Notes from a Blue Bike invites you to climb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your family needs, and make some important choices.
It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life according to who you really are simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.
After reading Tsh Oxenreider's blog for years, I thought I knew what to expect from Notes from a Blue Bike. While it's true, it is more of her fantastic writing and inspiring insights into simple living, she is going even deeper in her book. The level of openness into the struggles of her family on its quest for simple living were like a cool drink of water for our family. Simply knowing we aren't the only family trying to slow down in this chaotic culture was so normalizing..Amen.
If you're longing for life with young kids to be about more than just surviving, Notes from a Blue Bike would be a perfect read! I am passing this book on to my friend, as I know she will get so much out of it!This was an awesome read, I also love the small chapters which made it easier to read tid bits off and on.
