When we talk about a lifestyle, we’re usually trying to describe a person’s – or an entire culture’s – behaviors, opinions and interests. We’re trying to put them into a box, so we can figure them out. She has a lavish lifestyle. A simple lifestyle. A hippie lifestyle. An adventurous lifestyle.
However, when we use the term lifestyle, we’re not worried about boxes or stereotypes or differences. It’s about all the ways we live in our lives, not how those lives may appear to someone else. It’s about professional challenges and personal choices. It’s about fashion and beauty, and the times when we could care less about either. It’s about cooking and entertaining and binge watching Netflix. At the Ladies of Birch, our lifestyle section is all about the day to day details – from the mundane to the frustrating to the planned to the beautiful.
