everyday // a tea party

A tea party was an excuse to invite dear friends over on a Sunday afternoon and use the antique Bavarian tea set from the 30's that we found by chance at a yard sale. 

To appreciate the everyday. To seek and find beauty in banalities. To document and remember the norm. 

To invite the extraordinary. To chase after adventure. To capture and memorize the incredible. 

To slow down. To simplify. To pursue purpose.

These are reasons Everyday was born. Everyday is a collaborative creative lifestyle project with Megan that challenges us to be intentional about how we spend our time. It often feels like we have very little control over what happens to us--and to an extent that's true--but we also have more power than we think to choose and take responsibility for how our stories unravel.

Each day matters because as my girl Annie Dillard once said, "How we spend our days, is of course, how we spend our lives."
