It doesn't alwaysfeel like it, but we do have thefreedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so thatour path better aligns with our values and passions.

The popular blogger and founder of the internationallyrecognized Simple Mom onlinecommunity tells the story of her family's ongoing quest to live more simply,fully, and intentionally.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from ahillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to asmall town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertimedilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions viaplane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

Entertaining and compelling--but never shrill or dogmatic-- Notes from a Blue Bike invites you toclimb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your familyneeds, and make some important choices.

It's a risky ride, but it's worth it--living your lifeaccording to who you really aresimply takes a little intention. It's never too late.

While the author is a bit preachy at times, this is a great book for learning about the slow living movement. Oxenreider takes lessons from her time living in Turkey and applies them to life in Portland, Oregon. She describes the challenge of avoiding processed foods in favor of fresh, whole food. Yet she is not one to skimp on good food. Better to fill your cart with food you can taste, savor, and spend time enjoying than a quick microwaved meal. She has a blog, Simple Mom, with more tips on living life with purpose.
