ISSUE 2 - The Hope Of It All  (2)_edited_edited.jpg

Living for the hope of it all is a sentiment we have always found lovely. To live not out of obligation , necessity or responsibility; but for the simpler joys of life. To see wildflowers bloom, to sip filter coffee at the crack of dawn, to see a stranger smile. Little things that make up the sum total of our lives.This is a chai break, a spring leave, this

is hope. Hope for better days, honeyed and warmed and messy. This is a piece of our soul, and so much more. Find in these pages, chips of our hearts, and parts of our love.

We really hope you love it.
