You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the earth, which is the highest form of prayer. -Thich Nhat Hanh
Something so peaceful and calming observing #nature and letting go.

Let's talk about lungs.
The lungs are at the front line of environmental exposure: 2 billion people are exposed to indoor smoke; 1 billion inhale outdoor polluted air; 1 billion exposed to tobacco smoke. More than 65 million people suffer from COPD, the third leading cause of death world wide. Did you know that the chemicals in some cleaning products could cause lung diseases? A 30 year study by Harvard University and the French Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) have found that using bleach and other household disinfectants just once a week increases the risk of developing COPD by nearly a third.
Today is the first ever #WorldLungDay ? To help raise awareness we are offering our followers 20% off ALL orders, because we want to promote a safe, chemical free home.

although i was wedding free this weekend, it has been far from a weekend of down time. as a business owner, there is always something to be doing or getting done. i've been so dang busy & out of town every. single. day that i haven't made it to the gym since thursday. which means i feel mentally wild since the gym is my place to take time for MYSELF & focus on my physical & mental health. i have a lot of new ventures headed my way - making for no time for rest - however, it truly is an amazing feeling to begin seeing hard work paying off & new amazing opportunities arising. here's to the new week of being non-stop but also grateful i get to live a life i always dreamed of.....creating art & sharing it with the world. 🌿🌷🌵 | photo: @lkphto
Does anyone else use a bullet journal? We love ours. As not only does it help us stay on top of our to-do lists, but it keeps them in line with our overall goals too. We love a Sunday morning journal planning session, to set us up for the week. And to make tomorrow that little bit more bearable ✨ 📷: @grishagina
Charlene and I were born one month apart. We grew up together and spent the first 5 years of our lives together being cared for by her grandparents (my adopted grandparents) and her mom in Bridgeland. We have grown into very different people and don't see each other often, but when we do, it feels like coming home. For as many differences as we have, there are many similarities that make it evident we spent our formative years together. Yesterday we caught up while walking the neighbourhood- including checking out the only thing left standing in grandma and grandpa Champmans yard, original to the house - a small white picket fence that grandpa built.
This is so true.. Sometimes I feel like I'm not doing enough, like doing my part isn't really doing anything. The difference between being a decent human being and making conscious choices to be a BETTER human being every day for the sake of this world are huge in my opinion. I might be wrong but decent humans do the minimum. They're polite and don't litter and do favors for others (which is awesome! I'm not bashing anyone whatsoever).. and I don't have many followers but I consider you all my friends and at the very least aquaintances and if you're reading this I challenge you to do more than the bare minimum in making this world a better place. Please research how to make your home #eco friendly. Research how to help hurricane and earthquake victims. Research #daca and #blacklivesmatter . Research #vegetarianism and #veganism and how just ONE veggie day A WEEK can prevent so much cruelty, deforestation, pollution (the list goes on and on).. Research who you're voting for and #vote for people who want to make your life/community/city/state/country/world a better and more peaceful place for #everyone (and I mean everyone.). Research where most of your #clothes actually come from and research #minimalism .
And I challenge myself to be better too, because I feel so deeply and I know in my heart I'm not doing enough. Sorry for my rant. ♥
Over the past 6 weeks we have been so lucky to have had @ellenmaewill as our artist in residence at the farm as part of a Land to Craft exhibition curated by our sister company @bamfordjournal. Ellie has been putting together a series of images and textile designs using natural dyes found in our organic Market Garden ingredients, grasses and hedgerow fruit. After weeks of hard work, Ellie will be exhibiting her final pieces in our Bamford Barn tomorrow at our Harvest Festival - an inspiring collection, it is well worth a visit 🌾🍂 #exhibition#LandtoCraft#DaylesfordHarvest#Daylesford#Bamford#DaylesfordCotswolds#nurturenature
