About

We – Kelli, Stephanie, and Ilse – met online circa 1998 through our common interest in simple living.  At the time, we were spread out around the country, but soon found ourselves clustered in Minnesota.  Individually and with our families, we have used frugality to achieve goals and work through hard times; we have experimented and observed; we have learned and shared with others.  20 years of experimentation and observation have led us to Snowshine Cottage, a place of intentional living. Here, we will explore our ideas of simplicity and meaning and the tools we use.  Please join the conversation!
