Post image for November Catalog Behind The Scenes: Water

Today I wanted to share one final batch of the incredible behind the scenes images from our November catalog shoot in Iceland.  I keep going back and looking through these images, again and again.  There is something so powerful about the landscape, from the massive ice formations and vast open spaces… it reminds you how small you and your problems really are.  As a Scorpio, I fall under the water element, so these photos really speak to me.  Read more »

Post image for Blogger Diary: I Dream Of Africa

Africa, how can I repay what you have given me? Your people who radiate with such astounding beauty and light, no matter what their personal life has served on their plate. Sights of deep perseverance and hope give 24 hour goosbumps. Strangers become family in an instant. Human connection is the deepest, most simple ingredient. Forget language barriers, politics, haves and have nots… connecting with an elder of 110 years old, holding hands and smiling souls: that’s it.

I too have always felt drawn to Africa and had the chance to travel in Ethiopia for a month a few years back. It was the most amazing experience of my life! Even though I have only been to one part, I am convinced that Africa is the most beautiful continent in the world. Both for it's landscape, and it's rich culture.

Post image for Monday Quote: There Is A Pleasure In The Pathless Woods

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
-Lord Byron Read more »

Post image for Illustrated: The Elements And Our FP Girls

The Elements — believed to mirror the most essential foundations on which all matter is built; Earth, Fire, Air, Water (not pictured here)… and what I like to think of as the fifth element, Spirit.  The fifth element (in both Buddhism and Hinduism) is said to represent that which is beyond the physical or material.  The Spirit goes far beyond our grasping or understanding in a scientific matter, extending to a realm that cannot be measured or quantified.

Mel -Nov 16, 2013, 8:47PM
These are lovely! Although I would have liked to see my element (water) and my girl (Sandy) represented - I believe they would go together nicely. Still, gorgeous paintings and the descriptions were spot on!

Post image for Blogger Diary: The Wisdom Of Insecurity

I did something last week that I rarely do.  I took a vacation — a whole week off, with no plans.  Well, the only plans were to drive to my beach house, where I would spend the week relaxing, taking long beach strolls, reading, writing, and just being.  Life is funny…it always has other plans.

To be still. Ahhh! so many of us live fast pace lifestyles. We are taught in America to achieve success at a rapid pace. Go to a good college, get an internship, find a job after college, get married etc. The list goes on and on. But what about personal well-being? I believe that taking care of yourself is key to health and happiness. So let's learn to take time for ourselves. This could be simple as taking walk out in nature to clear the mind. I personally like to have me time by reading, painting, dancing, or walking by the lake.

Wow, these pictures are gorgeous! I just booked a Tuscany villa rental for 2 weeks for the end of this year so I have been doing a lot of research on things we must see and do while we are there. We are definitely going to have to go to San Gimignano. Thanks for the tip about having to get a car and being a AAA member. That is very helpful. I can't wait to see this for myself.

three years ago I took a two week trip to Italy and we went to have a huge farm style lunch outside in the rolling hills of Tuscany, I don't remember exactly where we went but it was so incredibly beautiful. everyone needs to experience the food, beauty, and culture of Italy...especially the food ;)

If you ever want to take pictures of some spectacular views, New Zealand is a great place to go. It's where The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit was shot. No green screen.
