The Bloom Collective | Simple I

Welcome to our new labor of love, The Bloom Collective. This Bloom Collective is unique in that is truly designed by our members, for our members. We have spent the last few months collaborating with our passionate community designing a project that although meant to strengthen each of us individually, it is also 100% built from within a supportive camaraderie. We whole heartedly believe that creativity and inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and at us from all different directions. Here, we may all be on different stops on our independent paths but as shared kindred spirits, we are working on one very collective thing — to push the ball ever forward. Join us here Mondays for the latest edition of The Bloom Collective and follow along and feel free to add your own spin to the theme at #thebloomcollective.

“I love to be alone with life. I love to study simple things: the light as it filters in a window; the music of a room full of people chatting; a horizon.”
