Pinefulness: Resa & Rman
It’s no secret that we are absolutely in love with Resa & Rman’s handmade wreaths and bouquets. In fact, we like them so much that we’ve even made them available in our shop.
We had a short conversation with Jerica and Lučka, the pair of female creators behind the brand, about how they find peace of mind in their day-to-day lives ... or as Otja the rabbit would have put it: “The things that are as relaxing as the smell of pine trees”.
STARTING THE DAY RIGHT
Jerica: I get up early in the morning, take the dog for a walk, exercise for 10 minutes and then have breakfast in peace. After that, our little horde of children can begin screaming! :)
Lučka: Good days usually start the night before, when I get myself into bed on time, put my phone away and lull myself into sleep with a page or two from a good book. The next day I usually get up and hurry to work, where I like to enjoy the peace and quiet of the morning. :)
WHEN TO FIND TIME FOR YOURSELF
J: In the morning! I think of my work for Resa & Rman as “me time” too.
L: Evenings work best for me, when the world winds down. I like to take a moment for myself during the day too.
MAKING THE MOST OF A RAINY DAY OFF
J: Reading, tidying up, playing with kids, making a fire in the fireplace.
L: Reading, drawing, editing photos, singing,... and browsing Instagram too.
THINKING OF NOTHING
J: I don’t know that feeling. Usually I’m pursued by at least 10 things at once.
L: I also don’t know the feeling, but I really enjoy sitting on a hilltop in the evening and letting myself be in the moment, at peace with my thoughts (even if the thoughts themselves aren’t always calm :)).
SUMMER CALLS FOR...
J: Hills and the sea, sunsets and sundowns — at home and on holidays.
L: Early mornings, bare feet, mountain views, evening songs, sleeping under the stars, jumping into water, reading to the sound of crickets, salty hair, family gatherings...
YOUR FAVORITE ARTFORM
J: Prose and poetry; I love putting myself into someone else’s thoughts and feelings, and trying to understand them.
L: It’s hard to choose just one! Music, poetry, prose, photography… every day in a different order.
WHEN YOU LOSE DIRECTION IN LIFE
J: I’m lucky to have people who know me well and I can share my troubles with.
L: I second that, I try to find my way again with their help, as well as with my values and my faith.
A SMALL SOMETHING THAT MAKES ANY DAY BETTER
J: The feeling of being thankful — each day I try to find and bring to light one thing that I am truly grateful for.
L: Gratefulness, without a doubt. But it’s not always easy!
