Notes From A Blue Bike- Tsh Oxenreider

Life is chaotic.
But we can choose to live it differently.
In Tsh Oxenreider’s new book, she shows us how…
The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World

*** Special THANK YOU to the publisher & BookLook for providing me with a review copy.***


Tsh Oxenreider is the founder of (previously Simple Mom), a community blog dedicated to the art and science of simple living. She’s the author of Organized Simplicity and One Bite at a Time, a regular contributor to (in)courage, an advocate for Compassion International, and a top-ranked podcaster. A graduate of the University of Texas, Tsh currently lives in Bend, Oregon, with her family. Learn more at


It doesn’t always feel like it, but we do have the freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that our path better aligns with our values and passions.

The popular blogger and founder of the internationally recognized Simple Mom online community 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 a hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

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

It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life according to who you really are simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.



I can’t believe that I only just discovered Tsh through this book, but I am blissfully happy I have!
I love her! I love her writing style, her honesty, her bravery and her desire to come along-side other families striving for simplicity!
This book is a must-read! I enjoyed reading all of Tsh’s adventures and seeing the small changes in her family and way of life that caused a richer, more intentional way of living.
This book is to be slowly savored, one bite at a time and then digested in ways that manifest in your own world.
I am currently incorporating some of her ideas and finding ways to slow down, live with less and connect with others who desire the same.
Notes From A Blue Bike will remain a mainstay on my bookshelf to enjoy again and again!!!
