Adventure, Minimalism and Real Food

💕I cannot believe where 2020 is taking me. With the love and support of incredible humans, I did my second craft fair today! 🥰🧶I shared my macramé creations with Asheville at the @makehermarket in celebration of #internationalwomensday! Some moments I was terrified. Other moments I was thrilled. Mostly I was elated to see how excited people were about my creations + my upcoming workshops. Watching all ages, including a young child become joyful as they pick a piece I poured love into make my heart pump happiness and butterflies through my veins 🦋 Wow! The lesson I have learned is to unlearn my fears, the I’m not good enough thoughts, the self doubt. I am letting go of what no longer serves me and spreading my joy like eco- friendly 🎉 confetti! Thank you to everyone who has and will support me as I become more and more authentically me! 🙏🏼 Do the job you were made for, be the real you. ...

✨ 🌙 Do you have a bedtime routine? I’ve learned over the years, reading before bed is what does the trick for me. 📖 💤 Even if it’s only 5 minutes, it helps me let go of my day, free my brain of tomorrow’s “things” and settle into a different world. 🛌 🐾 Usually my pups snuggle with me and my hubs brings a glass of water 💦 before tucking me in and turning off my salt rock lamp. On nights my mind is busy, I put vetiver essential oil on my feet to ground me or hold one of my crystals to calm me. I look at my stack of books and find myself grateful for the journey I am on. Share with me your routine! Be ok if it’s just for a season or here to stay. You are amazing just the way you are right now! 🌙 #SleepTight loved one 💕 ...

Be Brave. What does that mean? Brave the Wilderness? 🌲 How is this possible? Well after you read this, you’ll understand that YOU ARE THE WILDERNESS! As I began my journey through this highly recommended book, I found myself being brave. Instead of allowing myself to be overstimulated, I listened to what I needed and took some much needed me time. With 1 hour, a gluten free brownie and a kale salad, because #balance, I was able to smile and realize I made the right choice, a new choice and one I need to make more often. I said no to socializing so I could move inward and then later socialize truly and with good intention. Every choice we make is an opportunity to choose bravery. Are you choosing to listen, shake things up, truly belong and brave the wilderness? Pick up this book, reinstate your faith in humanity and be the change we need in the world. #book2of2020 ...

Yoga. It is always changing me 🧘🏼‍♀️ changing me in beautiful ways! As life happens, we have our days above the clouds 🌞 and our days we feel stuck in a storm ⛈ Throughout all of this, if we let life happen, we realize it is all happening just the way it’s suppose to. But sometimes when you are in the heart of the storm, it just doesn’t feel like you are “suppose” to be going through such hard shit!!! Am I right? Whose with me? Well, while my life is currently emerging from a storm, every now and then a lightning bolt finds it’s way down. I was starting to get a little fatigued. But then I walked myself into my first ever Bhakti Yoga class and y’all, this is the card the teacher placed in front of me. I got just the message I needed. It was face down and after a wonderful class centered on our sacral chakra, I flipped it over, read it and exploded with emotion. YASS!!! Thank you 🙏🏼 universe! It is working out beautifully! But more than the words, it was the picture paired with these words. No matter how many years or obstacles, I will become a mom! I will, I need not worry. It’s all working out beautifully. 💕🙌🏼 #yoga #ttc ...

🍜 5 minute #paleovegan ramen! Yasss! I have been working hard to come back to what my body wants when it comes to nutrition. Some days I only have a few moments for lunch and this has been a winner time and time again! 🍜 Veggie Broth 🍜 Pre-roasted veggies of choice 🥦 🍠 🍜 Spiralzied zucchini 🍜 Turmeric, Pepper + Salt All I do is bring the broth and roasted veggies of choice to a boil, add spices and pour into a bowl. I add the zucchini to the warm broth to lightly cook and not get too soggy and enjoy! When I bring it to work, I keep the broth and veggies separate. I heat up just the broth and pour it over the veggies and enjoy! 😋 #eatplants ...

How some books find their way into our lives can be funny. This one, I’ll never forget. While driving to the grocery store one day, a woman quickly pulled into the spot beside me and waved ecstatically as if something was terrifyingly wrong or we were long lost friends being reunited. This sweet woman had waved me down because of my bear bumper sticker. 🐻 My sticker had excited her so much, she needed to talk to me about her love for them! Now in Asheville, black bears are seen frequently very close to homes. We are after all living in their 🏔 mountains. After a lengthy conversation about my time in Maine and love for both wildlife and the wilderness, she recommended this book. Skeptical at first, I wasn’t sure where she was going with it when I heard the title. But, let me tell you, if you are into wildlife, wilderness and are even a little eco conscious, you’ll want to borrow this book from your library! Within these pages, I was reminded of so much that brings me joy. I was reminded why I live a low waste, plastic free lifestyle. I was reminded why I make the daily tiny choices I make. I do it for 🐆🌳🐬🌻🐢🌵🦌🏔 all of them! I am grateful for each one of you who think twice before using single use plastic, refuse straws, buy in bulk, remember your reusable cups and bottles, use shampoo bars and so much more. I am grateful for @paulrosolie and all the work he has and continues to do. I am grateful for the courageous woman that waved me down to thank me for caring for our wildlife by having a simple sticker. Thank you! #bethechange ...
