What does the word embrace say to you? If it’s a hot summer’s day then you may want be the person embracing (or, more accurately, devouring) the orange lolly on our cover. Or it may conjure up a memory of a passionate clinch, a familial embrace or simply a welcome hug from a friend. In this issue we’re also embracing our bodies, right here, right now; embracing a life you dream of and embracing what’s on our doorstep. The word is merely the jumping-in point, where it takes you is up to you.

Taking time to live well

The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.

We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.

And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
