“You guys have got to weigh in on this debate,” said our friend’s e-mail.
I figured I’d check it out. Awake and chugging coffee early in the morning, I had nothing better to do in my jet lag induced haze here in Italy. Read more
A lot has been going on. Time to get you all caught up. We’re married (in a way that will stick this time). We’ve started our Ultimate Honeymoon (why not celebrate with a sequence of “best of” travel experiences?). Read more
We had a bit of a self smack-down in NVR-land, and it all started with this advice to a friend: Read more
We recently caught up with some friends who are about to have a baby. Before we could even ask, Lynn said, “We’re not telling anyone the sex of the baby until it’s born.”
“Good for you!” we both blurted out. Read more
“One of the most powerful indictments of economic inequality I’ve ever read.” Read more
As part of our big plan for 2013, especially our Ultimate Advocacy project, we want to introduce you to people who serve as allies in order to make the world a better place for everyone. Read more
This is the week of the year that you’ll hear the word “happy” more than any other. In honor of that, we asked our friend Britt – the ultimate happiness seeker – to share some thoughts. Read more
December was starting to seem like, well… kind of a welcome distraction. A couple of weeks ago, fully satisfied with the year that was, we attached pretty much all of our attention to 2013. Heck, even our “best of” 2012 post was published. Read more
We lucked out on Small Business Saturday.

It’s that time of year again – the season of gratitude, the time for giving and receiving. That can only mean one thing… Passports with Purpose (PwP) has arrived! Read more
Although we’re in Costa Rica, this isn’t a post about Costa Rica. It’s about what we’re up to every year in October / November, and it just so happens that – this year – Costa Rica is the perfect place to do it.
It’s about dreamscaping the year ahead.
Since the start of the year – in honor of 5 years of our NVR lifestyle – we’ve been focused on raising the bar. Being even bolder about pursuing what we want out of life, more passionately expressing our viewpoints and wholeheartedly advocating for what we believe in. Read more
Today, make the decision to do something. Make the decision to take action in order to help in creating the kind of world you want to live in.
