We're currently on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Fukuoka, en route to my personal paradise, @ryokan_sanga. A living fairytale of mossy boulders, tranquil streams, and forest onsens—tendrils of steam forever rising from blue water into the boughs. A place of restoration & healing, this is where slow lives. On Monday we'll be joined by our retreat guests, and I'm buzzing with excitement to share this place we love so well with yet another group of adventuring creatives. This is truly what our retreats are all about. Travel, slow living, culinary exploration, and visual stories both lived and captured. Learning to balance motherhood and running a business full time (and all while largely living out of a suitcase) has, at times, been a challenge. Work never seems to end, time to simply be is scarce. But I recently read something that really struck a chord, that great things take great investments—of time, energy, resources—and that naturally throws things out of "balance". Maybe, instead, we can learn to travel to the outer edges, to the extremes, but know when to stop, when to come back, when to recharge. Good work requires stillness and time to do nothing just as much as it requires intense effort. Neither should be derided. Work is extreme, motherhood is extreme, passionate homemaking and passionate travel are extreme, devotion to self-care is extreme, a great relationship is extreme. Dare to want them all and dare to get them give them the time they require. That's slow living to me, the time it takes for something, anything, to be great. Its about the idea that there is no fast, easy way to worthwhile things. It's about knowing when it's the season, the week, the hour to move or to be still. This week, it's time to be still. #localmilkretreats #theartofslowliving

Distressed jeans and a plain white tee👌🏽 Found a great dupe for my cross front tee and it's only $24!! My jeans are back in stock in all sizes--grab them while you can! Ps. These sunnies are only $14!!! Outfit details in my bio! http://liketk.it/2qOIw

Lace & Tassels earlier this week. Love this lace cami that's only $12 that I got it in black and white. My cardigan has the cutest tassels and it's less than $50 and I also wore it as my swim coverup (see my earlier 📷 on my feed) Happy Friday night! Sitting in my pjs and relaxing. http://liketk.it/2qOIe #liketkit @liketoknow.it 📷 @reeemxo #tasselcardigan #lacecami #ltkunder50

I have been wanting to play this glass sheet forever, and I decided tonight was the perfect night. Friday's always include staying in and lettering 🖊

Any things Popsicle 🍓 - Happy Friday🙌🏻🎉!!! It finally feels like spring here, and I'm so looking forward to spending some time outside soaking up all the sunshine (maybe a trip to the zoo as well) 😊. What are you doing this weekend? I made these silly smoothie popsicles last summer, but with all the warm weather ahead I think I'll try out some new flavors and characters soon. While I love to recreate or modify awesome recipes I find online, I also have a ton of smoothie, nice cream, healthy baked goods recipes and more of my own, and was thinking about sharing them on my website. Would you guys like that? I've been trying to decide what to do with my website forever (which is prob why I never mention it 😄), but I thought if I store the recipes online it would be much easier for you to find them and I could go into a bit more detail about how I created everything. Always appreciate your input, and hope you have a cool weekend 😘

MOST RECENT

Sun spreading its splendor across the blue canvas
Moon receding away from the strong strokes dipped in grey
It sits meek and shy
For the night has ended
It's time for the sky to be splashed with yellow, all bright
It sighed, with a known contentment
Said that even though it's time to part,
I'll shine tonight on your velvety layers
Oh sea, don't forget me under the balmy air the sun has brought you
Behold the cold and silver nights we have cherished together
Remember the silence, the calm of the night
Don't forget me after the day's excitement and might

Saturday morning jollies with these two; I love having this special time just with them (and their canine sister) every week. And I love so much that wherever Sasha goes right now, Teddy always comes too. My baby and his baby. Teddy had a little bath in the duck pond, which hasn't pleased @unravelthewildes who went to considerable efforts to wash Teddy last night and convince Sash to sleep without him whilst he dried off. Whoops! But at least he is having fun.

Happiness is letting go of what your life is supposed to look like, and celebrating it for everything that it is. ~Mandy Hale~
I'm slowly trying not to analyze everything that is happening and not happening in my life. I grew up thinking It's impossible for me, because I've always been that way. Always mindful, always looking for reasons, answers, getting ahead of myself, second guessing, jumping the gun. I've finally reached a point of just wanting to let go.
