Our ‘Best of’ This Year

Personally, I had stopped sharing book reviews a few years back because my sense was that people would connect to what was most relevant for them at that very given time, depending on their circumstances, experience and need.

Then, earlier this year, I started getting questions around what inspires me? I have to admit I get my inspiration from many different sources – from reading, observing art, water colouring, traveling, listening to podcasts, writing poems, watching movies, nature! 🙂

We were discussing these inquiries as a team and  decided to share a short list of our ‘best of’ this year.

We hope that these resources bring you inspiration, joy and company over the holidays as they have done to us over this year…
