In today’s world, we are surrounded by technology and modern conveniences that have become essential to our everyday lives. For this Texas couple though, their simple life together in the Texas desert is all they need to stay happy.

In the video below, you’ll be introduced to Dick and Bonnie Cain, who have opted to live the simplest and most rewarding life possible. Dick spends his days working outside and riding his horses through the desolate West Texas desert. While Dick is away, Bonnie stays at home and works on chores around the house.

Although they don’t have much money, the Cains say they spend their lives enjoying each other’s company and the simple pleasures many of us seem to forget. Instead of binge-watching television or staring at their smartphones, the couple spend their time on the front porch observing the colorful sunset or plucking instruments alongside each other.
