i'm so glad you're here

Over here, I'm holding the beauty in one hand and the grit in the other and choosing love in the midst of it all. And I'd love for you to come along. Read more about me.

(almost) weekly letters from my heart to you
stay connected

in the shop

The new whole heart talismans are in the shop! 

« full of ease | Main | nourish (over at chickadee road) »

home. savoring.


backyard blanket fun

the sound of millie walking through the halls

the feel of my own pillow under my cheek

the happy pink flowers still blooming in pots

being part of Hannah's The Joy Up (still a bit of time to join us)

watching the olympics

just enough shade and slight breeze to stay cool when it's hot

unexpectedly finding peanut m&ms in the cupboard

huge juicy sweet local strawberries

poetry being shared in a safe, open space

ideas flowing while flying and unable to grab a pen but still remembering them hours later

finding a space of ease between us

watching her sniff the peppers, squash, tomatoes, and mushrooms and then put them back without taking a bite (we hadn't purchased them yet, so this was a good move)

knowing that in a few weeks i will be unpacking my creative world into a new studio space


i saw a note on facebook this weekend about how sometimes social media can invite us to feel like we aren't doing enough cool things or hanging out with enough cool people and so on. i get this; i really do. but that feeling that comes up, i believe what we do with it is a choice.

today, i invite you to just make a list of what you are savoring or what you love in your home or your favorite moments from the last week. just make a simple list and let go of comparing and just notice and choose to live inside this moment...

You have a lot to be grateful for, my dear. I agree with you about face book sometimes making you feel like you aren't doing enough cool things - - - there is soooooooo much cool stuff going on out there! You just want to be part of the party! Back to looking at our own small savorings honestly helps. Thanks for the reminder. :-)

what a great message - it is so easy to lose sight... sadly. it is so important to be present in our own lives and in these moments - life goes to quickly that we have to absorb and appreciate all the moments we can!
thank you for this message <3

How true, to savour our moments which we often don't as we get on with what has to be done. Beautiful words, you are always so insightful.
