One of the biggest reasons I depart from my minimalist philosophy is reading. Specifically, reading about what others are doing. I read a blog post, or a magazine article, about someone doing something interesting: traveling, using a new productivity system, doing a new kind of workout, brewing artisinal coffee, making bread.

(I have a whole Pinterest board with our inspiration) As a joke, he and I started talking about spoofing said photos – gender-swapping the traditional ones, exaggerating the materialistic ones, etc. One thing led to another, and our photographer/YouTube friend Malia caught wind of the idea.
