Monday Words: Aristotle

Monday Words: Choice not chance | The Fresh Exchange

A quote to kick off your week this week. We are spending a couple days in the mountains to get away from the city a little. It has been beautiful out here. You can see the place we are staying.

Creating Space for Wildness – Happy Weekend

Making Space for Wildness | The Fresh Exchange

I wasn’t 100% certain I had much to write about for today, so I was about to skip it. Fridays we usually leave open for ideas on our content calendar. Sometimes we will plan things and sometimes we won’t.

A Trip to the Beach

A Beach Trip | The Fresh Exchange

When we started the conversation about starting a family years ago I had tons of ideas of what life would be like and how I wanted to raise them. There were many things I had my thoughts on from schooling to food to screen time, but the one thing I knew most about what life as a family would be is that it would be full of adventure.
