Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

I wish I could write these following words in Swedish. Just because it is so simple to express oneself in one’s own language.

This photos show the way I lived my life. We lived a very simple life, a few cows, a horse, a dog in a beatiful surrounding. I do agree with the expression ”that less is more” – how could one otherwise be greatful – when you can compare and have experiences from a simple life…
