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.

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

I have been thinking a lot this month about intentional living. About how daily choices I make in my life and how they in turn affect my personal well-being and also my family, community, and in small ways the world at large.
For example, it have given me a renewed sense of purpose to choose how and what I buy with intention. I am choosing to opt for resale shops and support small business and handmade more and more. Are my choices perfect? No. They will never be, and I will never place that pressure on myself. But, what I choose instead is to make better and more intentional decisions day to day. To feel really good about the way I am spending my time and my money. To be aware and conscious about how my choices create a ripple effect.

The idea of less: spending less, less screen time, less needless distraction has been coupled with more: time with friends, authenticity, truth. Below are some of what has been inspiring me lately to soak up the space between the moments and allow for less noise and more inspiration. Read More
