Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via themodernexchange)

It is not so much what we do but the spirit with which we do it that counts. The only thing worth spending my life on is something that makes life richer, warmer, fuller, happier where I am. We are each given only one life. The spirit we bring to it, the heart we put into it is the measure of its value, whatever else we do with it to make a living. The purpose of life is one thing. It has to do with choosing to pursue the lofty as opposed to the ignoble. The purpose of my life is entirely another. That has to do with choosing to spend myself in ways that bring holiness to the mundane. The problem is that only I can do it. How I am, the environment around me will be: full of arsenic or full of the warmth of the Spirit.

About:

Gather is all about creating hygge (hoo-gah): a Danish word that means coziness + fellowship + security + reassurance + well-being.

It's my catalog of all things hygge: home photos, recipes, quotes, + ideas that embrace that feeling of gathering together with friends and family.


Cheers,
Annie
