I’m an aspiring semi-minimalist wife and mother working full-time in corporate america in information security.  I live in the South in a small historic town 30 miles outside of a major city.  I love historic preservation and I’m fascinated by sustainability, minimalism and the power of positive thought.

    Dear Semi-M,

    Thank you so-o much for your blog. As I break free of a consumer oriented lifestyle (that I set up!), I am also struggling with what should takes its place. Not only have I made lifestyle changes but I’ve also changed my eating habits. I am feeling more and more islolated from the mainstream consumer and even some of my friends. Just today I stopped at BB&B looking for kitchen tongs and a little recreational window shopping. I left empty handed and a little sick to my stomach.
    I can really relate to all of your posts and look forward to reading more for ongoing support.

      Tre, hang in there — I know how you feel! Thankfully there are a lot of great blogs by others who are working toward the same goals and they keep me inspired. You may have to embrace being the odd-man out, though … we are definitely counter-culture on this one!
