“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”⠀
― Ralph Waldo Emerson⠀
We live in a fast-paced world, and keeping up can feel overwhelming sometimes. But don't let yourself get sucked into the black hole of 24/7 news and social media. They create a false sense of urgency, and bombard you with information that doesn't truly serve you. If you feel like you're constantly in a hurry or always waiting for the next best thing, take a minute to slow down. Remember that in nature things move slowly. Let go of the need for instant gratification, and allow change to happen gradually. There is beauty to be discovered in the unfolding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As you may know, we are currently building a dream mountain retreat on a 25-acre property in Washington State called Gingerhawk. Our intention with this project is to create a cozy, rustic but luxurious, and unique mountain living experience for small groups, retreats and family gatherings. We hope to share our love of nature in this beautiful and sacred setting where countless memories will be made over many years. If you are interested in learning more about how to visit, stay tuned for updates coming soon! ⠀

We're up at Gingerhawk this weekend checking on construction progress, and things are coming along beautifully! This is a view of the pre-existing cabins at Gingerhawk from down the slope. They are all connected by cute wooden decking so it really gives the space a special camp-vibes retreat feel. We can't wait to start hosting friends and family on this mountain dream property. Stay tuned for another big update coming soon. ⠀

We found these gorgeous wild blackberries growing on our property in Washington, and we can’t wait to see what else can grow. We’re heading up to Gingerhawk this weekend for the first time since construction began, and we’re looking forward to see how things are coming along!⠀

Hey friends - Happy Friday! We are Adam (@acemada) and Laura (@lweatherbee). We live in sunny San Diego, CA, and recently purchased a 25-acre property in Washington State that we plan on transforming into a dream retreat called Gingerhawk. We are passionate about learning and teaching sustainable living practices, and share updates on our website and blog, Live to Sustain (link in profile). Laura is currently studying acupuncture and Chinese medicine at Pacific College, while Adam works in technology and market research. A few fun facts about us: 1) We met on Bumble, the dating app in 2017. 2) We are getting married next year - hooray! 3) Adam is an avid outdoorsman and plant daddy, and Laura is a former interior designer. We bonded over our shared love of Mama Earth, and desire to live a more sustainable lifestyle. 4) We have two adorable kitties, Smokey and Bandit. 5) When it comes to sustainable living, we are far from perfect. Our mission is not to judge or compete with one another, but to support each other on the journey towards sustainability. Tell us more about yourself in the comments, and what you're most interested in when it comes to sustainability. ⠀

Adam scouting out the lay of the land at Gingerhawk, our 25-acre retreat property in Washington State. A lot of the 25-acre property is situated on a densely-wooded steep slope that isn't easily accessible. But we're hoping to blaze a trail that will make a walkable path that winds down into the ravine and traverses the property. Fingers crossed it all works out!⠀
