We have been absent for the past two weeks.
Or so it seems.Why? Basically, we’re getting our shit together and I’m doing my best not to crumble.
The month of February has been a bit of an overwhelming one. Our original plan when we left the US in October was to visit Bali and then move to Bangkok and get teaching jobs. We would settle in, save up, and visit as much of this side of the world as possible. After spending a month in Bangkok, we realized it wasn’t the right fit for right now. With no real backup plan other than to keep traveling, we moved to Taiwan. We’ve been rolling with the punches ever since.
Now, our 90 day Taiwan visa is coming to an end. We need to make some major decisions: either we move somewhere completely new or plan a trip out of the country and return.
I totally hippied out for the Kind Proposal film we shot last week. How could I not with these incredible, vibrant flowers?! Their liveliness just makes me break out into a smile, especially with sunflowers in the mix – my favorite flower alongside the poppy.
Sunflowers are just so dang happy with that bright yellow. Fun fact: sunflowers are called tournesol in French which, word for word, means turn toward the sun. How happy is that? They’re little reflections of the sun. These flowers are a perfect reminder on how to live each moment: like a mirror for the sun.

For Valentine’s Day, we want to know how you perceive love.
What’s your idea of love? What would your candy conversation heart say? These are the two questions we asked our friends from ’round the world this past week.
Your unique answers surprised, tickled, and warmed us. Each one opened our minds a bit more and left us feeling happier.
Check out what your fellow comrades have to say about love:
I’m starting a collection of things that hit our radar and drive us to get up and go do. Here’s to hoping they inspire you, too!
I’d like to formally introduce myself. I’m the guy hugging things. Nice to meet you too.
As you might know, Jill and I have finally been able to catch our breaths from our travels. Being in the little-big city of Tainan for a month, it has been nice to just walk around and soak in everything.
One thing that has pleasantly surprised us is the beautiful flowers that surround the area. If the Olympics had gardening as a sport, Taiwan would be a serious contender.
So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day and the misery that can be winter, we’ve picked a few of our favorite flowers just for you!
