A daily something (adailysomething.com) is a blog, featuring life’s simple pleasures and the art of slow living. The star of the blog – Rebecca Gallop – is a blogger from Northern Virginia, who has made A daily something her main creative outlet. When you do something you love and believe in, it tends to grow organically – we have witnessed it ourselves with Not Perfect Linen. The same happened with Rebecca’s blog – it eventually turned into a lifestyle business, enabling her to work from home, spend quality time with her family and see her kids grow.
The main idea of A Daily Something is bringing happiness and simplicity to our everyday lives. In her blog, Rebecca shares daily little things that make life beautiful (and can often be left unnoticed). The blog covers cooking, home décor, DIY, life with the little ones, entertainment and lifestyle topics. It has become a community of like-minded individuals, who enjoy daily inspiration and are interested in beautifying and simplifying all areas of their life. What is more, A Daily Something willingly cooperates with other businesses, sharing similar values and viewpoint to life.
Rebecca not only shares her ideas online in her blog, she also organizes workshops for students, willing to learn how to live more consciously, intentionally, simply and thoughtfully. An Intentional Autumn is A Daily Gathering Retreat, which took place November 10-14. It’s a 5-day retreat, focusing on slow living, thoughtfulness and learning to notice and appreciate little pleasures of life. Thirteen students have participated in the retreat, full of meaningful conversations, lots of laughter, good food and interesting workshops.
We partnered with Rebecca and her Gathering retreat by sewing linen aprons to Rebecca’s students. We are more than happy to be a part of it, as we strongly believe in the importance of little details and their power to affect our daily life.
Mindfulness is something that can be shared and learnt, so retreats like these are an absolute must in order to spread the idea of living a simpler and more meaningful life. It allows to stop for a second and focus on what is truly important in life. Learning to notice and enjoy the little things in life is a true gift – we truly admire those who manage to achieve it daily. Instead of focusing on what does not go according to our plan, we should put some effort into finding at least one little thing that brought us joy that day and take moment to fully appreciate it.
