This is definitely one of my favourite quotes! I think people tend to forget really easily why they started and I also find myself reminding me of exactly those things. Love, Svenja

Post image for To Do: Create An Autumn Bucket List

Here on the east coast, the bright, crisp days of autumn have finally, officially, arrived. Some may be sad to say goodbye to summer, but between you and me, this is the time of year I look forward to the most. The trees are adorned with their fall colors and the air is the perfect temperature for outdoor adventures. Read more »

Post image for Lessons From A Tuscan Life

Fresh off a family trip to Tuscany, I can’t help but think that we’re doing it all wrong. Everywhere you look – on the internet, in news stories, popular literature, and social media – we tout the need to slow down and appreciate the good things in life. As hard as we try, our culture can make our attempts feel like swimming upstream. Read more »

That is a beautiful blog post in photos and sentiment - just reading it refreshes me and reinforces that slow living ethic. If more people lived like this the world would be so much better off.

I've been living in Vietnam for the past few months, and will continue living here for quite a while longer. What I've learned in my time here reflects a lot that you describe about Tuscany. One thing in particular, the emphasis on *community*. Something that has seemingly fallen through the cracks of the 21st century in America. People take care of each other. Kids run around the streets without a care, because everyone is watching them so no *one* person has to. With the sense of community, the acts of a larger network of humans working together, come other things. Cooking for neighbors and family and friends, growing food for everyone to enjoy, taking time to rest. I believe community is at the base of all of these things. The Vietnamese people in our neighborhood have certainly adopted us (my fiance and I) into their community and the feeling is something I will never forget. It's something I will attempt to recreate wherever and whenever we end up back home.

I always feel fall is a time of renewal, when we're able to take stock of what the months before brought us, filled to the brim with warm nights and sun-filled days. An echo of summers past, and a herald of Old Man Winter just around the corner! xxx
Sara -Sep 23, 2014, 8:17PM
There's definitely something about this season. Winter is my least favorite, but I always look forward to fall -it's just right! And I love me some sweaters & hot pumpkin spice lattes! xoxo Sara http://www.restlessnomads.com

"Trust the timing of your life" - something I've been trying to remember everyday. With so many changes going on, its so crucial to remember what you love. Be dedicated, work hard, and it will happen. Never stop daydreaming…I do it everyday and it keeps me inspired.

I am a true believer of self sustainability.My daughter is apprenticing here on the islands to be a Organic Farmer.I one day wish for you to feature Kauai.where we have fought tooth and nail for keeping our children and the island safe from the harmful outcome of spraying pesticides.if you please just look at Malama Kauai.They teach our youth self sustainability and Organic farming.

"Hi, we are trust fund poseurs.....I mean farmers." Free People: there are authentic people out there that can truly inspire. Why profile privileged rich kids playing at a bohemian lifestyle? But, I'm glad she found a hobby that makes her less self involved.

Post image for The Beauty Of An Early Morning

I love waking up before everyone else. It’s just me and the sun, which I get to watch slowly peek above the trees for its A.M. debut.  Read more »

Corey -Oct 06, 2014, 8:10AM
I use to be a night owl, I swore that early waking was impossible for me. But then I found myself in a 9-5 so I had to wake up before 9. The weeks and months rolled by and I started wanting just a little more time each morning. After a while I felt unsatisfied at my job and I found that if I woke up and gave myself an hour to do whatever I wanted before getting ready, I didn't feel AS stuck. I started writing myself little "you got this" love letters every day and then I saw my confidence in myself and life increase. When I fall out of waking up early I shift back to a more anxious personality. So mornings it is for me.
