I can’t say it enough, but sometimes I still am in awe of the beautiful state of Utah that we are lucky to call home! We are so lucky to have such gorgeous mountains and outdoor scenery just in our own backyard!
We love heading up to Park City for a little staycation getaway, especially in the winter! Whenever we can ski as a family, that is always a plus for me! You see, back in the day I worked at Deer Valley Resort teaching little kids ski lessons. I dreamed of the day when I could take my own little family on ski vacations and cozy up for a winter stay! I love when things come full circle, don’t you?!
Every year I say I am going to slow down and enjoy the Holidays. Then, in one way or another things get busy, the stress sets in, and I am back to feeling overwhelmed. Well, not this year! I plan to enjoy the Holidays, simplify and let go of the things that don’t matter as much!
While I absolutely love being in the kitchen creating and cooking, during the holidays I find myself so busy with all the extra activities, and fun.
I am so excited to be partnering on this sponsored post with Workman Publishing on another special release 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.
Creativity Takes Courage is the newest book released by the co-founders and creative directors of Flow Magazine, Irene Smit and Astrid Van der Hults. It is available now, and only $21.95!
It is a practical and hands-on guide to stretch your creative muscles and dare to focus on the pleasure of the process! The book is organized around a series of twelve “dares” that are intended to break you out of your usual habits and approach to creating by giving you a fresh perspective and leave your comfort zone. A few of the “dares” in the book are: dare to be quiet, dare to be mindful, dare to try something new, dare to be alone, and one that particularly stood out to me was number 9, dare to go offline.
