Post image for Weekend Nook: Cafe Aquatica

Every weekend, my Love and I try and get up with the sunrise on Sunday morning… jump on the bike (if weather permits) or in the VW bus… and find a little nook in a coffee shop. A nook where we can read the paper (I know… people do, in fact, still do this by hand), sip on a hot drink, play a game of chess or dominoes, and watch the sun greet the day. We live in Sonoma, where little nooks are everywhere, but none quite like Aquatica. Café Aquatica sits on the cliffs of Highway 1 in Jenner, California. A small tiny town (population: 136… yes, as in one hundred thirty-six) that will pass by if you dare blink (most great things do… don’t they?). Read more »

Wow, that's such a cool little cafe! That sandwich looks delicious too.

Post image for How To Recuperate After A Long Day

It’s 6 0′clock pm. You just worked your ass off, and the day couldn’t have gone by any slower…or was it fast? You’re not quite sure because the brain is fogged up from stress, concentration, strain and exhaustion. We all have these days, and sometimes it might be hard to leave it all behind. Read more »

I just love this post. Now I have such a busy and extremely stressful period at school, so it is great to read posts that inspires and motivate to don't give up! Thanks!!!! (sorry for any mistakes,I'm Latvian (: ) Have a lovely day.
Emily -Jan 16, 2014, 4:48PM
Amen. Amen to all of this. Writing, exercise, and doing absolutely nothing (with my cat by my side) are always my go-to ways to relax. I really need to start taking more baths though... xoxo

Post image for Inspiring Couple: Billy and Mai

Billy and Mai. Two strong, beautiful individuals; people that make you feel at home, welcomed, and in the end… not wanting to leave, no goodbyes, please.  While incredibly connected and obviously completely in love, they haven’t lost themselves, not one bit… something to admire in devoted, loving couples.

what's the name of her t-shirt company? I'd love to purchase some!

this is great but it would also be nice if fp featured couples of different sexual orientations as well. seems like fp is all about being inclusive of everyone, so that would be a great way to feature the diversity that fp already celebrates

Post image for Small Ways To Say “I Love You”

Love is a beautiful thing, and quite a big deal, I think. Hearing those three words can make you feel emotions you never thought possible. They can whirl around you, through you, and sweep you up into another world. What I love most about love, though, is that you don’t necessarily have to say it to let someone know you feel it. Showing your love can be just as powerful… and I think it’s so fun to come up with different ways to do it. It’s the little things. Read more »

I leave my husband a little sticky note on the mirror almost everyday. Sometimes its just an "I love you" sometimes its about something that happened that day, and other times when I know he needs some isnpiration I will leave an uplifting message. I know he really enjoys my little messages, plus it reminds me to take a moment each day to think about my husband (especially when our schedules are busy). And I've found that the more messages he gets the more he thinks of me too and does little things to show his love in return.

my grandparents still leave sweet little notes around their house. I think its my favorite thing about visiting them. seeing that they still love each other and still put in an effort. it melts my heart.

Post image for In My Bag: Homemade Goodness

Imagine reaching into your favorite bag… the one you carry with you more often than not, and pulling out nothing but homemade goodness. A deliciously fragrant perfume you concocted the night before, a face serum you mixed up right before leaving the house in case the cold winter air dries out your skin, a hand-bound journal that lets you keep track of those sudden ideas and houses your magnificent tiny doodles.  Read more »

Jillian -Jan 10, 2014, 10:08PM

Post image for The Unexpected Teacher

When I welcomed Oliver into my life a little over a year ago (remember this?), I knew he would change my life. I knew he would bring me so much joy, make me laugh, annoy me to pieces, and melt my heart. I didn’t know, however, that he would end up being somewhat of a teacher. Cats are divine little creatures, and sometimes I think they know a lot more than they let on. Read more »

what a lovely kitty and article! i totally agree - we can learn so much from our 4-legged friends!
Jean -Jan 11, 2014, 6:32PM
It was such a joy, and coincidence, to read this entry as I too adopted a sweet kitty named Oliver a little over a year ago. My Oliver is whats known as a "friendly feral" - in other words, he once belonged to someone, but found himself thrown out on the streets and took up with a group of feral cats in order to survive. You would think being abandoned, and then mistreated by people while living on the streets, Oliver would be jaded and not want to have anything to do with people, but that's not the case. Oliver is one of the sweetest, most loving cats I've ever known. You mentioned many wonderful cat traits/behaviors we could learn from, and I would include one more - the ability to forgive and forget. Our Oliver has certainly done this. He loves his human family with his whole heart even though by all accounts his past should make him feel otherwise. Thank you for your sweet piece - your Oliver is adorable.

Post image for Embrace Winter, Get Cozy

January. The days are short, the skies are gray. The joy and excitement that once filled the air comes to a lull, quietly escaping alongside the holiday season. Wanderlust hits. We want to get out. Away, away, to somewhere warm. We dream of a place with sun-filled days and jacket-less nights. Read more »

The quote is actually "she stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her WAY..." Instead of away. FYI.
