LOVE Big Sur and all that it offers.

Big Sur changed mine and my partners lives in such a beautiful way. The best tip I can give is that it's legal to stay the night at any turn out. Free camp site right over the beach you say?! Thanks for the review on The Henry Miller Memorial Library, definitely top of my list next time we go back. xoxo Vanessa

Boulder is SUCH an amazing place. I moved there when I was 18 and just left (last week!) after 6 years of calling it home. There is something incredible about Colorado, particularly Boulder and the rockies. It will forever be my home and I can't wait to get back there. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures and words! It truly moved me and made me miss it sooo much. -Dre

I'm sure you hate answering the same question all the time considering it's your art and your style...but dude, what do you do to all of your photos to make them look so utterly dreamy? Especially the first couple and your insta. Desaturate the yellow hues? They're just so fresh and bright! Please, if you don't mind sharing your process I would really love to learn. Thanks, jana

Post image for Book Club Meeting, Chapters 4-5: A Breathing Room & Inviting the Bell

It’s a space that calms you upon entering; an entire room dedicated to taking breaths in and out, connecting mind to body, and returning home to yourself. Read More

These were 2 simple chapters but loaded with good advice! I love the idea of a breathing room but my 1-bedroom apartment sadly offers little space. Set on the idea though, I've cleared a corner, underneath a window to bring in natural light. I've laid down a soft blanket and surrounded the small space with a few things that help me relax, as Thich Nhat Hanh suggests. Some days it seems like we wake up, go to work, run errands, get home, and then just continue the business until bed. Truly I never feel like I have time to relax until the weekends. I think a "breathing corner" might remind me to sit and relax for a few minutes each day and get centered again.

living mindful moments is a requisite to peace, beautiful reveal of a very necessary thing~

As soon as I seen your first pic, I knew you had to have been through Utah. I hail from this beautiful state, and it is truly everything one could possibly imagine, and more! Doesn't matter how many times I see the beauty and majesticness of the scenery here, it takes my breath away every time!

Love this! Long distance can be difficult… I've done it a few times and haven't seemed to figure it out yet. You guys really respect what is keeping you apart and it looks like it helps with the distance. Hope you guys got to spend V Day together!

This is the perfect example of why I come back to the Free People blog again and again -- beautiful, simple, raw, authentic inspiration that is completely achievable in my own life -- once I have the idea and the encouragement to go out there and do it =) xo
Hanna -Feb 12, 2015, 7:17PM

Sitting is something we do all the time. Read More

I love this! Its so easy to get caught up in the noise of the world in which we live, and forget to enjoy every passing minute in quiet appreciation and being. It looks like I'm going to have to read this book :) Thank you for your thoughtful comments. -Love
Susan -Feb 10, 2015, 12:02PM
I'm reading the book too! I love how it is so compact, the chapters are so wonderfully short, leaving time to experiment and explore his wonderful suggestions for creating peace and inner harmony. I love his chapter on bells. I have a pair of Tibetan bells with a delicate chime, its sound radiates a feeling of serenity throughout the room. Thank you for recommending such a wonderful book! The Weaver Of Words.....give me 15 words and I'll tell you a tale

Having grown up in Philadelphia, graffiti is something I’m quite accustomed to seeing.Read More

Moe Leigh -Mar 03, 2015, 10:19PM
I've always loved the look of graffiti, but have always wished there were a place for it to be featured (feeling awful for those lovely artists trying to express themselves only to be covered and hidden)- It is so awesome that this exists- and it is BEAUTIFUL!
Hutton H -Feb 17, 2015, 12:22AM
such an awesome and inventive way to let artists express themselves. just added this to my list of must go to's for this summer. I think artist need to be given more freedom of expression and ways to display the insane amounts of creativity that we all keep bottled up. Art makes people happy and we could all use more happy.

San Luis Obispo is so beautiful and quaint. I never realized this little gem was so close. Must go back. Thank you for posting about it.

Cambria is such a great town. It is low key and understated with the fierce beauty of the pacific coast. There is a great little pottery store in town,, Ephraim Pottery. They handmake the most wonderful nature inspired pottery. Love Cambria!
