I've known Sarah for a long time - we first met when she was studying the same fashion design course as my older sister. I remember thinking she was one of the most fun, energetic people I'd ever met.
More than a decade (and five children) later, Sarah still has the same vivaciousness and zest for life as I remember all those years ago. Instead of fashion, she is channelling that creativity into floral design.
La Dolce Vita - Italian for "the sweet life." Whatever it is Italians call it, I'm into it. Loosely translated to mean a life that is full of pleasure and living to the fullest, to see it in person just head to southern Italy in August.
I remember the ah-ha moment I had when I first read this quote by Robin Sharma. At the time, the idea of creating a vegan eatery had been swirling around in my mind for a while, but it was easier to promise myself that 'one day' I'd do it but right now I didn't have enough money/experience/skills to really go for it.
Our cafe is closing for a winter break and I am bloody excited! I don't create well around chaos, so a chance to slow down and be present will help me draw inspiration from the magic and beauty of our incredible planet.
