The Year of Living With Simplicity

And here are just a few quotes I’m going to read every day to remind me of my resolutions.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Leonardo Da Vinci

“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” Henry David Thoreau

“Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.”  Frederic Chopin

“Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last effort of genius. — George Sand

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”  Steve Jobs

Rebecca and Jason at the Hay Adams

Rebecca and Jason were an absolute pleasure to work with and their wedding couldn’t have been more perfect for them!  The team at the Hay Adams did an impeccable job, as always, and from all the smiles in the photos, it is evident that a good time was had by all.

I really loved the old European manor house and garden romance we were able to weave throughout the event.
