My family and I are leaving today for an extended Thanksgiving holiday and 35 hours of driving. I know this thought stresses most parents out, but we love long roadtrips with our family–journeying somewhere together a little slower, listening to audiobooks or music, following changing landscapes out the window, stopping in random fields or spots to play and eat. This trip, we’ll be driving to Cincinnati to visit with long-time friends and also meet-up with some long-time online friends, including the founder of Haven Magazine, a new publication about journeying and finding home.
I received an early copy of Haven’s first issue last week, and it is beautiful. The photography. The storytelling. The vision. But I especially love that all of the profits for the first issue are going directly to Freeset, a fair-trade business offering employment to women trapped in Kolkata’s sex trade. Today, I’ll be taking over Haven Magazine’s Instagram feed, sharing images and talking about home. Feel free to follow along or enjoy the video below to learn more about the publication itself. Enjoy!
