Ever found that the road you're on in life is taking a winding path that is flat out longer than you anticipated? Been there, done that and still on the journey!! So the past two years have really done a number on us - from moving back home to the US to set-up a business after a decade abroad to realizing that it was not the right long-term move for us after all and needing to come up with a Plan B pretty quickly. Our Plan B has not come without its challenges, but overall we can't complain as moving to Lisbon and focusing on setting up shop here has touched us in known and unexpected ways.
The first part of our year was filled with too much that needed to just get done and not enough time to process the big changes that were happening for us. With a bit of time and focus, we've begun digesting some of the change we've been through. It's through this meditative place that we wanted to share inspiring places that Boston unveiled to us over the past year while undertaking these big shifts in our lives.
We've got some changes on the immediate horizon, but we wanted to share a bit of background to help put things into context.
So as it turns out, living overseas for over a decade and trying to return home is harder than it sounds. We’re not talking logistically, but instead about how you and your worldview change so dramatically that you no longer connect with your former home.
To share further insight into the designers & makers who create the lovely goods in our shop, we're kicking off a series of interviews by connecting with Kirsty Thomas. She's one half of the creative duo who founded Tom Pigeon. Their modern prints and stationery frequently use simple shapes, but each piece evokes a connection to the unique places where they draw their inspiration. Kirsty shares with us more about her inspiration and insight into how living in Scotland impacts their designs.
We’re officially launching our journal and it’s apt that it’s Thanksgiving Day in the US because we wanted to acknowledge that we’re extremely thankful...
