See You Later

By Hinda Leah Sharfstein | July 22, 2015

On Tuesday, we were sugar addicts pulled over to the side of the road, licking the last few teaspoons of our pint-sized carton of ice cream, wistfully dreaming of more. On our last trip day, we did things we’ve tasted before. Clear skies mirrored in clear water. Acrylic paintbrushes dabbing expertly on blank canvases. Soft …

Tall Trees and a Whole Lotta Paint

By Hinda Leah Sharfstein | July 9, 2015

———————————Our Week In Review———————————

By Hinda Leah Sharfstein | July 1, 2015

Ready? Let’s get to it. Friday was a let’s-loosen-up-with-nature-and-connect-to-our-souls day. Soulful connection being optional, but impossible to resist. We biked and then hiked down a winding trail, surrounded by the rushing sound of the Minnehaha Falls, the wind softly ruffling our feathers (hair) and the muted chirping of birds the background music to our quiet …
