Taking Time to Rest

How to rest in a busy society

I can’t be the only one who falls into this work-a-holic kind of trap. It’s easy to get caught up in all the things to do and not take time for ourselves, am I right? Being intentional about rest is something I’ve learned before and continue to re-learn over and over again.

Isn’t it funny how ‘learning to rest’, or ‘self-care’ seems to be a conversation we all have but never follow through on?

Why We’re Hitting The Road: Thoughts on Full-Time Travel

family travel bloggers road trip across USA

Traveling full-time has been a goal of ours ever since we’ve gotten married. The logistics look different and our family dynamic has changed, but nonetheless this is a dream we’ve always had and hoped one day to pursue. This idea of a nomadic lifestyle was one of the main motivations behind building our Tiny House back in 2015, and followed us when we moved to Asheville.

In short, we’ve always desired to live simply and see the world. That’s really all there was to it.

4 Ways to Beat the Rainy Day Blues

Although rainy days might limit your options of ‘things to do’ on a free day, the leisurely but active attitude of summer time doesn’t have to be restricted to only outdoor activities. Today I am sharing four of my favorite things to do at home.

Sometimes, I Suck at Minimalism

Why is minimalism impossible

It’s not really a secret that I consider myself a minimalist. I’m notorious for bagging up things to send to thrift stores and more likely then not I always have some bag to send away in my car. There’s close to nothing on our walls, and often you’ll find me going through out household items […]

A Collection From Boone, North Carolina

Travelling with a Toddler in the Blue Ridge Mountains

This one’s a bit of a throwback. For my birthday in February, we booked an overnight Airbnb trip to Boone, North Carolina. This was a special trip for us. Two years ago, for our first anniversary (where has the time gone!?) we went to the nearby town of Blowing Rock. Although we had a blast and enjoyed our stay, we always felt like Boone, a bit bigger of a town, would be a place we could call home in a region we adored.

Almost two years later, we finally made a visit to Boone. And as it turns out, it’s pretty awesome.

Summer Reading List

A Summer reading guide for adventurous ones

This summer, one of my main goals was to start reading more. Between running our own business and raising a free spirited toddler, it’s incredibly hard to take the time to sit down and read. It’s easy to think there’s not a place for reading in my life and that it’s not worth the fight. However, […]

3 Marriage Lessons We’ve Learned in 3 Years

The past five months have been incredibly trying. It seemed as though Murphy’s law was in full effect against us- everything that *could* go wrong, did go wrong. I said things to others I wish that I hadn’t, we’ve gotten more frustrated with each other than ever before, and have cried more together then any other time I can remember. Throughout these few months, I’ve benefitted from people sharing their own experiences and failures, as well as their shortcoming and successes in their marriages.

That’s why I am sharing with you today- not because our marriage is perfect, or because we have everything figured out… but rather because we don’t. The little bit of knowledge we’ve gained the past few months has been painful, but also beneficial and strengthening for our relationship together. Nothing I’m sharing is really revolutionary, but I’m hoping our story can encourage you no matter what relationship is dearest to you or where you find yourself in life.
