Looking Back on 2015

Happy Monday! I hope you’re all feeling rested post-holiday. My family and I just arrived in St. Barths, where we’ll be spending New Years again. It’s beautiful! I spent the flight over looking back on 2015. Over the last year, this little oasis of mine became my full-time work. That meant bringing on Katie as a my content director, and creating a bigger space for you to find inspiration. The…. Read more
