We’re constantly stoking our own Inner fire with all the inspiring, creative, fun projects going on out there in the world. It seems every time I end up connecting with a friend from our tribe I walk away with a piece of paper scribbled with notes of “things to explore”. Although we can all agree there is NO substitute for in-person play time, we feel so grateful to live in a time where all of these amazing resources are just a click away. So pour yourself a lovely cup of tea, and enjoy connecting with some of these awesome people/products/ideas that are helping to keep our heart fires burning this spring…
