Adventure, Minimalism and Real Food

Y’all!!!! It’s this woman’s birthday!!!!! Yes, I have lots of September babies in my circle!

This babe is my first little sister with a punchy attitude that makes me laugh so hard my belly hurts. We share favorite shows, drinks, eats and a tattoo! I didn’t realize how awesome sisters were until she became a young adult. Now I’m hooked and constantly feel blessed!

Munch, you amaze me every single day! I hope your day is full of yummy vegan-ness, puppy kisses and surprises!! Happiest of birthdays to you!!!

Hopefully next year we can be together! 😘🥰

There hasn’t been a flower on this violet in probably a year. Today, after hearing that a beloved friend had passed over, the small bud that had just grown the day before popped. 🌸 It brought up many emotions. Two Ryans have made appearances in my life for a short time and both made transformational lifelong impact.

The first came to live on earth before the earth side was ready for his bright light. He taught me lessons in love, grieving and caring. His spirit has held me many times when I have been lost.

The second said the simplest, shortest sentences in response to my struggles that turned on the biggest light for me, built up my confidence and helped me see my value. He barely knew me but he saw me.

Times right now are tough. It’s hard to move through unknown times. If you or someone you love is suffering from addiction, depression or navigating our world right now please call the Nation Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP

I ask all of us to:

😊 Smile under your mask
🙏🏼 Hold space for your loved ones
💕 Spread kindness
🎶 Sing
💃🏼 Dance
🎉 Celebrate your community

All the Ryans we have lost would want this. #iseeyou
