When Kirk and I got married, I told him that instead of a fancy ring, I wanted to explore the world. And so we took off, a modest silver band around my finger.
We slept on floors and carried our belongings on our backs. In Denmark, we worked on an organic family farm in exchange for room and board. It was like getting a peek into a magical world. The family made or grew much of what they needed. But they also spent their money on a few carefully curated items.
They chose to live simply, yet beautifully.
Since then, Kirk and I have tried to create that kind of life for ourselves. Sycamore Street Press is a continuation of that, and we hope that we can help others trying to create a simple, beautiful life, too.
