Many people ask us why we chose the cactus as our logo. If you know us, you know we are sun lovers- and cacti need a lot of sun, like us! This is what drew us to the cactus, at first...
As we began to think of how slow a cactus grows, it seemed even more appropriate. The cactus symbol seemed to reflect us as a family as we were looking to embrace a slower lifestyle.
Also a cactus doesn’t need much- just plenty of sol and a bit of water. We too were looking to live a simpler life -full of love and soul. We were also looking to live with less...less stuff, less waste, less work, less consumption, less impact, less noise.
Cacti also thrive in rugged natural landscapes and we were in transition to the beautiful raw island of Santa Maria in the Azores archipelago- which just so happens to have many types of cacti!
Another fun fact- my husband and I met each other in Austin, Texas- so a cactus is also something that reminds us a little of our southwest roots- which brings us full circle.
