    Currently.

    Hi love, How are you? What are you up to over the next few days? Today, I plan on getting outside to get a nice long walk in (the sun is out!), and tonight the kids will teach me how to play hockey on the Xbox. Tomorrow morning, we’ll do a virtual indoor Family at Home Adventure, I’ll get some organizing done in the house and plan to clean up the back patio for dining al fresco next week (it’s supposed to be sunny!). I hope that whatever you have planned, that you’re doing well and staying safe.  Thinking of you.♥️ Here’s what I’ve been up to lately: LISTENING TO: Real Food Whole Life Podcast. Some of my favorite…

    Bringing Yourself Back to the Present

    The last time I wrote on the blog was a month ago, and dang, so much has changed in that month. I don’t want to go into the details of everything that is going on since I’m pretty much certain that you are well aware of the worldwide situation playing out at the moment. What I am here for is to be of help. I live with anxiety. I live with it and can manage it pretty well, but at times like this, it gets heightened. And that’s OK. I am in good company from what I hear. I am trying to take care of myself during this unprecedented time…

    Let’s Talk About Self Love, Part IV

    Today is the last Self Love series (you can read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 here) and I thank you for joining me on this journey. It’s been nice to give extra attention to the subject this month. I really hope it has helped you in some small way on your own self love journey. That your faith in yourself has grown larger. That you believe in your worth. That you know are enough. EXACTLY as you are. You are loved and accepted. And are everything wonderful. Don’t forget that. And if you need a reminder, shoot me an email and I’ll give you a pep talk. Honestly.…

    Let’s Talk About Self Love, Part III

    I love songs that speak to me, my worth and I often turn to music to lift my spirits. Or to jump start a dance party in my kitchen. Today I put together a playlist of some of my “I’m a badass, I love myself, I am worthy, and I feel good” songs for you to play whenever you need a little boost in your day. What are your favorites? Mine is Love Myself by Olivia O’Brien and ALWAYS “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman (the BEST movie EVER!). xx

    Let’s Talk About Self Love, Part II

    Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! Today isn’t just for lovers….it’s also a day to celebrate YOU. To show yourself some love. Last week, we talked about what self love is and the start of my own personal journey with it. Today, let’s talk about a few simple ways to practice and bring some self love to you and your beautiful life. Below are 25 ways to do just that. 1. Stop comparing yourself to others. Everyone is on their own journey. 2. Buy yourself fresh flowers, weekly. This is my favorite way to bring color and joy into my day and week. And it just feel so special to have pretty…

    Let’s Talk About Self Love, Part I

    Hi loves! Last week, I mentioned that I wanted to start a conversation, surrounding self love. I, myself, have been on a self love journey for the past couple of years, and it’s been a LESSON. I wanted to share with you my thoughts on self love through out the month of February. I also want to hear what you have to say about the topic…..come join the table! I’ll start. Growing up, I did not know what “self love” was. Not as it’s know today at least. I would say that I grew up in a household that didn’t really encourage self love, self discovery, etc. I didn’t have…

It’s hard, complicated, scary, soul filling….pretty much allllll the things. But the thing I have been curious about and want to bring to the table is the subject of self love.

And let me tell you it’s been A LESSON! Every Friday on the blog, I’ll post a little something about self love – some thoughts, advice and questions. Come…

    Goodbye, January!

    Is it me or was THAT not the LONGEST January E V E R? Back on January 17th, I felt like it was January 94th! So happy to see February finally make an appearance and get this year rollin’!  I ended 2019 with a NYE party (our 10th one!) here at home with good friends. A few days into 2020, I was cruising along with my extended family on my way to the Mexican Riviera. It was SO MUCH FUN! Filled with sunshine, margaritas, naps and warm weather, it was a nice way to start the new year. A few days later, I got back and came home to about 2 feet of snow a couple of days later and got sick after that. My husband…
