About Simply & Softly

Our story is about living simply and intentionally, which sometimes means unconventionally.

As a writer, this is an outlet to follow wherever the pen may lead. You will find a mix of musings, adventures, book pondering, and favorite recipe sharing – essentially anything that Marie Kondo would say, “Sparks joy.” Which will usually be in the realms of seasonal living and finding space for a meaningful, creative life.

We (Kassie & Mason) are also the owners of a 1972 Airstream, aka the Dream Stream. After months and months (and months) of renovations with little to no experience of the sort, we discovered a very cozy home within it’s curved, aluminum walls. We’re very passionate about the tiny living community because it gave us the courage to live in a way we never thought possible, but always dreamed of. Hence, you’ll find plenty of Airstream living posts in the archives. Over four years later, we continue to learn and relearn what it means for us to live a more minimal, meaningful life.

If you’re anything like me and someone who has been a silent reader of blogs, I encourage you to comment on any post you may resonate with here.

It’s my goal to embrace my quiet tendencies, my softness, while also still being a meaningful part of the conversation.

Regardless, I’m glad you found your way here, and hope you can stay for awhile.

    1. Thank you for stopping by!
      As for my favorite novel, ahh! That’s a tough one. I’ve loved quite a few books in my short time, but I’d have to say it’s a tie between “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith or “The Distant Hours” by Kate Morton or… well the list could go on and on–but I won’t bore you with them haha. And you?

      1. They aren’t very popular books, which may be why I like them so much! Well, and they are well written of course.

        I do like Twain, although sadly, I haven’t read anything by him in the last few years. But, I cannot get enough of Twain quotes! They are the best!
