Right now I am working on a much bigger project than the one I have here! I plan to turn my love for nature into something that is practical and helps others care for the planet in a way you may not think of straight away.
I will let you know more about it soon and may write a post about what it is that I am working on but I have big dreams and this is just the beginning. Thank you for inspiring me – you’re so encouraging!

I had a most beautiful windy three days in the mountains. It reminded me what I value and love about my life. It also reminded me of the importance of being present, getting out of my comfort zone and keeping active.
How has your week been?
