The story of April Notes is a story of homecoming, albeit not in the most traditional sense…
You see, I grew up in a small coastal town. A place where people lived uncomplicated lives in harmony with nature and with themselves. Where neighbors were friends and time felt abundant.
Upon graduation, I moved out of my parents’ house to pursue a ‘grown-up’ life in the big city. In a matter of years, I finished my studies, had several jobs, met and married a wonderful person and started (literally) building a home together.
As lucky and privileged as I was, I felt my life was becoming a chore. Time spent with loved ones was sparse, days were flying by at the speed of light, and nature was just a pretty picture I’d stare at in between work calls.
Taking a one year break was an unexpected but much-needed decision.
That time allowed me to go back home: physically, emotionally, spiritually. I’ve gone back to my core values, ascertained what inspires and makes me happy, and set out an intention for a life I truly want to live.
April Notes is the embodiment of that intention. It’s my way of connecting the old with the new and preserving memories while helping others create their own.
I hope it inspires you to seek balance and mindfulness in your everyday surroundings as well.
