A few years back, Cara Hines, a West Texas farm girl turned big city interior designer, writer, artist, and inspired vagabond, took drastic measures to create a new and better life for herself. Selling 95% of what she owned, she set out to start a life centered around simplicity. "One day I stopped myself and realized that my life was running me and not the other way around," she says, recalling a defining moment of clarity. Cara wanted a life that was more mobile and above all, a life with more freedom. So she set out, with determination, to create just that.
