My 5-point Holiday Manifesto.

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on


As I sit here, listening to the sounds of the cicadas, the scent of lavender enamoring me with every gentle wind blow, almost hearing these last days of my vacation swoosh by, I can’t think but reminisce back on my weeks away. (I know how lucky I am for the plural of the noun.)These magical, amazing, with just the right percentage of work and play, weeks away. And, of course, now that I look at it from a bit of perspective, it’s easy to be smart about it. Because every year, come (summer) holidays, I have this great big plan on what I’m going to achieve, all the projects I’m going to dive in, the things I’ll finally finish and...

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on

Posted by Katarina Tavcar on
