Happy Earth Day, everyone!
I am constantly in awe of the beauty and majesty of this planet, and constantly try to be sustainable and make conscious choices in both small and big ways when I can. Today is a great day to take extra time admiring all our home planet has done for us!
In honor of today, I’ve picked a few of my favorite quotes about our Earth that really touch me! I hope you enjoy!

To the silent wilderness,
Where the soul need not repress its music.”

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
