I am late with this post and I'm sorry. But, I felt it was important to mention was Tasha Tudor (who's birthday was yesterday) is an important role model in my life.
As many of you know Tasha, was an artist and illustrator and her talent in those areas alone would be enough to warrant admiration. Her real talent, though was at living life on her own terms. Tasha lived as though it was still the early 19th century. She sewed her own clothes and grew her own vegetables. She kept goats and chickens (and corgi dogs, of course! LOL). She was considered odd by many, but she didn't mind. She was happy in the life she created for herself.
Now, I have no intention of giving up electric lights or cooking on a wood stove and giving up my nice gas stove or even of dressing like it was 150 years in the past. But I do intend to live in a manner that not only makes my heart happy, it's sooths my soul. Just like Tasha did.
