INSPIRED BY NATURE: A SERIES

Inspired By Nature with Fare Isle on Geoffrey & GracePhoto courtesy of Kaity @fareisle

I’m really excited to introduce you to a new series that I am starting on the blog today. Nature has always been a big inspiration to me, so I wanted to look at this in more depth, and talk to some folk that hold nature at the centre of their way of life. I’m thrilled to have some great people lined up that are so inspired by nature, that it shapes their work life, and the way they choose to live with their families.

I’m particularly interested in whether nature helps us slow down and supports a slow living lifestyle. I wanted to get some other peoples thoughts on whether working with nature helps them live in a more mindful and wholehearted way.

First up we have a lady who lives in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, the island of Nantucket. She is surrounded by nature at its best, and the landscape around her informs what she does. She grows and wild-harvest’s many of the ingredients for her produce, and focuses on farm to table pantry items, wellness products, and also offers a Chef Service. I am delighted to introduce you to Kaity from Fare Isle.

Competition with Bee Eco Wraps

The new blog design is now completely finished. To celebrate, I wanted to hold a competition to say thank you to all of you who stop by for some wholehearted and slow living inspiration. I love to share little snippets of our days with you, things that I am thinking, and how we are managing to live more simply and slowly. I am very thankful that you make the time to read, it really means a lot to me, and I hope this blog always inspires you to find a moment of calm and creativity in your day.

This is doubly exciting because I also get to share with you one of my favourite products. These Bee Eco wraps are handmade on the sunshine coast in Australia, and are a fantastic sustainable food storage. I have had mine for almost a year now, and I absolutely love them. The smaller wraps are great to cover pots to store food in the fridge, and the larger wraps are perfect for sandwiches when we go on picnics. Anything you would use tinfoil, clingfilm or a plastic pot for, you can use these wraps instead, but brilliantly there is no waste.
