Wabi-Sabi Sole

Finding Beauty with Imperfection


Happy Fourth of July! 

Speaking of America, I’m flying to San Francisco this evening for my 3-week summer camp. It all started with my brother asking me to join him and his family on a Northern California/Oregon road trip. From there, I orchestrated an amazing vacation optimizing my time, costly plane ticket, and excruciatingly long flight (11 hours). I have been planning this adventure since January and will spend time with friends and family who are all traveling to meet me. I’m truly appreciative of their efforts to see me. It’s an understatement to say I’m excited. 

Simultaneously, a huge shoutout to Dave for supporting me to enjoy this wonderful opportunity. 

Here is a quick list of places we will visit. 

Yosemite National Park


Lassen National Park

Volcano National Park

Redwood National Park

Paso Robles

Big Sur 

There will be many other side stops during our journey. I will do my best to share adventures via wabisabisole along the way. I must also communicate the expectation that I want to maximize my time in the company of my friends and family and don’t want to spend too much time with my nose in my phone. Im looking forward to unplugging for a little bit. Plus, I will be limited on my data because most of the places won’t have wifi. 

In the meantime, enjoy your Independence Day celebration and happy summer!

    Stop by our house in Saint Helena and use our wifi, have a coffee or a glass of wine, and share some Cummings gossip if you wish. With that itinerary, we know you’ll have little time, but you’d be welcome. Bon Voyage! (Sara and Roger Hagan)
