The summer is a time of light, and a time of major shifts to take hold. I am so grateful for the tools, the people, and the resources that I have discovered this season to support me in elevating and evolving my self-care, my relationships, and my day to day experience.Read More
The summer solstice is approaching, signaling for us to recognize the rhythms of our earth, of our bodies, and our lives.
As I prepare to host Nourish 360's Women's Summer Solstice Dinner + Intention Setting Workshop this Saturday, I wrote a prayer, a wish.Read More
There are some places you travel, that just feel like home.
Your shoulders relax into place, you start to recognize the small details all around you, your eyes open a little wider, everything seems a bit more alive.
For me, this place has been Paris.Read More
In a world where we are all 'connected' as ever, through our phones, social media, and the numerous technological modalities, many of us feel as disconnected as ever. From presence, from authenticity, from fulfillment, from magic.
Finding connection in the hustle and bustle of adult life can indeed feel like a struggle.Read More
Since as long as I can remember, I have had an affinity for coziness. All things, people, and surroundings that helped me feel warm, comfy, and safe were amongst my favorite. My most beloved.
Entering youth and adulthood, it was so depressing that most things I found surrounding health were the antithesis of feeling cozy. Punishing exercise, guilt ridden food beliefs (so long cozy evenings baking with mom) , and strangely air brushed pictures on magazine covers that that left me comparing myself to other women. Ick!
I don't believe wellbeing should be any of those things. It shouldn't be rooted in what you shouldn't have, it should be rooted in all that supports you in feeling well. There shouldn't be a focus of push until you can't, but rather listening to what helps you thrive. Wellbeing should, above all else, feel good.Read More
So, I want to tell you a little story…
Its about the wildest thing that has been happening, the past 8 years.
Its a story of how I am at the place I am today and about manifesting.
8 1/2 years ago, I moved to Paris, France to teach English. It sounds pretty glamorous and all, and don’t get me wrong, it kind of was. At times. Anywho, the glamourosity of my stay abroad has nothing to do with this story really…
When I moved there I had nowhere to go, no place to stay and I had one acquaintance. I barely spoke the language despite my years of studying it. I moved to a different country on a leap of faith and well, I found a dream apartment with dream Parisian roommates, and everything just started to work itself out. I didn't worry that it wouldn’t, I just trusted that I would be fine. And guess what? I was.Read More
The close of every year is one of my most coveted times. Especially the week after Christmas. The merriment and celebrations have transpired and their joy lingers in heart. Your shopping is finished, the grand dinners eaten, and there is some peace for the time being. The past year is to be reflected upon and for the coming one, dreams and plans to be made.
I wanted to give you a context to create your own magical end of the year wrap up. A small piece of time set aside to set big, powerful, and intentional plans into action.Read More
This past month I have set my intention to be one of focus.
I, for a long while, have known in my mind that where my focus is in my life is also what my experience becomes. If my focus lies in gratitude, all that I have, creating, loving, and enjoying; well of course this is my reality and my heart is full. But on the other side, if my focus is zoomed in on how things could be different, how situations are unfair, and on my own imperfections and my life's imperfections ... well, this become the lens I see my life through.Read More
October for me has been a month of relishing the simple. I am so overjoyed when I can see beauty in small details and appreciate things I normally take for granted : warm light, steam from a hot morning beverage, the perfect song at the perfect time. Something I rarely find when I am rushing to and fro. Fall and winter are the months that I also find myself naturally slowing down; the months to sit with family, create more space to rest, and create in the kitchen.Read More
Here are some of the things I love. What are some of yours?
- The first fall chill down my spine after a string of warm + sunny days.
- Starting a Sunday with cozy pjs, fuzzy blankets, and a good read.
