I am so excited to be partnering with Workman Publishing over next several months on some special releases by Flow Magazine. Flow is a magazine that takes its time, celebrating creativity, imperfection, and life’s little pleasures. In a time when other print media is focusing their energies on their digital properties, Flow Magazine is finding success by fully embracing the physical qualities of paper. It’s weight, texture, the way it takes color, and the formats and ways in which it can be delivered. Their newly released book, A Book That Takes Its Time (An Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness), is a book about mindfulness and a book that inspires mindfulness written by the editors of Flow Magazine along with Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst. It is a book about doing, about experience, and about intention. This book is a great reminder to slow down, breathe deeply, and be present. It is a book you will want in print since it includes hundreds of interactive paper goodies! It includes, journals, postcards, stickers, thank you notes, posters, and dozens of other treasures. I have absolutely enjoyed reading it, and filling out some of the prompts and interactive activities!
I feel like lately the word busy is brought up in nearly every conversation. How are things? Busy. We are always busy these days. I don’t know if it is the stage of life I am in or if something has changed, but I really think it is both. The younger generations feel so much pressure, stress, loneliness, and anxieties. I feel like it is much more than ever before. But why? I think technology is to blame, privilege, lack of being mindful and present and intentional in how we are living.
These world class sheepdog’s are highly impressive with their skills, and dedication! It was our first time going to the event as a family, and we couldn’t believe they were able to control those sheep like that!
Another event my kids liked the best is the Splash Dogs! We loved watching the dogs try to jump out the furthest into the water! Even the little dogs were fun to watch!
There was a lot to see including the Sheepdogs, Splash Dogs, Highland games, K9 Acrobatic Dog shows, Raptor bird shows, vendors, and food trucks!
We made a little vacation of it, and stayed at the Zermatt Resort nearby! It was our first time staying up at the Zermatt, and it won’t be our last! It is in the beautiful mountains of Midway, Utah. The kids loved the pool, the free carousel rides, and the little bakery was so cute and tasty!
We love that there are so many family friendly activities to do here in Utah!
Hope you are enjoyed a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend!
Steamboat Springs has become a very special place for our family. We have loved our time there during ski season, so we decided to head back to this magical little town in the mountains for some fun during the off-ski season!
Steamboat Springs not only is beautiful with picturesque mountain views, but is also has so much to offer! From winter sports to summer activities, Steamboat has it all! It was our first time to Steamboat Springs in the warmer months, and it was so fun to see it in a new light! Beautiful green trees everywhere, the green valleys, and the rivers flowing. It is quite a place! With so much to do in the off-ski season, we thought we would make a list of our favorites!
