Without even realizing it, this past week had a heavy theme of travel! Friday we decided to spontaneously drive an hour and a half to the ocean at midnight for a picnic. Sunday I took some photographs around the house and one of my favorites was the standing globe we just found at the thrift store recently. Yesterday I finished a project using our Seattle vacation photos and late last night I finished the book, One Year Off.
It was a great read about a family of five that sold their home, cars, and other possessions to take off for a year and travel all over the world with their three young children. My favorite quote from the book was “Live every moment—no matter where you are and what you’re doing—as if it were truly important… you must strive to be in a good place—a place of purpose and integrity… Life is short under any circumstance and in some cases it can be plucked away at a moment’s notice.” – David Elliot Cohen
It really made me think about how much I would like to accomplish before this year is over but also not to forget all the little moments in between : )
