4 out of 5 mornings I trip over a chair while dressing. It’s a lovely chair, we bought it at IKEA a few years ago, and it’s lived in our bedroom for a year or so now. After reading this post: http://zenhabits.net/2007/08/a-guide-to-creating-a-minimalist-home/ something clicked for me. I knew I had to get that wonderful chair out of my bedroom. I also got rid of the air filter we never use, an iron wishbone (it’s PotteryBarn don’t you know), and a huge glass vase with stones in it. This act of simplification felt so good. Not as good as Kristin stealing me away from the office today at 5:05pm or watching my daughter play this evening, but still, it was in the top 5 moments of my day. I wouldn’t even consider “my style” to be minimalist, but the principle of simplification breathed new life into me this evening. Here’s to Chair-free living.
