I know I’ve been gone for a minute or two, but I’m back now. I’ve been taking some time to refocus my energy and determine my goals. In recent news, I’m headed to Calgary and Banff next weekend, and I’m oh so very excited. I’ve done my own fair share of travelling across the US and especially South America, however it’s been a while since I’ve explored Canada - I’m very grateful to be able to do that this year.
However, right now, I’m hanging in the backyard, sipping sangria, eating grilled cheese and munching on this seasons ripest goodies. Yesterday I went to the bookstore, and I finally got my hands on the newest Kinfolk, and let me tell you – this may be my favorite issue yet. It talks about being an Essentialist in contrast to being a minimalist.
"Deciding what is essential in our lives isn’t about paring back our belongings and forging our beloved but necessary frivolities: Instead of determining how little we can live with, it’s about working out what we simply can’t live without.” – Kinfolk Magazine (volume sixteen)
So do it. Decide what can't you live without? What makes your heart sing? What brings pleasure to your eyes? What can you simply not live without?
