It’s been quite a year and March comes like a welcome breath of fresh air. As we move into spring, we shake off the winter cold and everything that brought us last year – which was undoubtedly a lot. We started the year with gentle intent over strict resolutions (we’ve just completed our RE: SET challenge, if you’ve missed it, it’s not too late to do it yourself!) And with the aim of being gentle with ourselves to deal with, as life still looks a little different than normal.
In this endeavor, we look forward to engaging in the daily things that give us pleasure.
So cheers to the barefoot weather, the fresh breeze, the bite of a perfect spring berry and ticking off our March bucket list.

Take it seriously to pursue your goals.
Real change happens in small increments over time. Since we are a few months out of the year, it’s common for the resolution to tire of breaking up and those goals to falter. This article provides tools to help you adhere to these.

Make some focaccia bread.
It’s actually quite simple and the perfect addition to virtually any meal (we love this recipe). It is best to eat it warm from the oven and pull it through a piece of high-quality olive oil (we recommend Bon Furtuna – a hand-picked extra virgin olive oil from a historic family estate in Corleone, Sicily).

DIY the perfect pin board.
Whether you are using it to plan a project, create your 2021 vision board, or pin tasks and various inspirations, a bulletin board is essential for organizing your brain.

With travel still a little difficult, we love stays that are an escape in themselves. These Airbnb’s in the US will make you drool, once you get there you won’t want (or have to) leave. If you dream big, check out these Airbnb’s from around the world.
