When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality.
~Henry David Thoreau
Hello and welcome! Some of you have probably found your way here from Yes Michigan! or The World We Wish For and are wondering why in the world I would start another blog. Well, this is my new blogging home. I love the other two and those causes are incredibly important to me, but others are too, so here I am. I'm still going to talk about local businesses and building community, but I'm also going to talk about all the other adventures my family and I have while I try to learn to live more deliberately, more intentionally and with true passion and understanding for those things to which I choose to dedicate myself.
