Finding Confidence In Creativity

Did you grow up comparing yourself to the impeccable drawer next to you in art class? Maybe life’s daily tasks became overwhelming and your creativity drifted to the wayside. Whatever the reason it’s time to pick up your drawing pad, your camera, your paintbrush, your yarn, your microphone and start creating again. Everyone Has A Creative Nature Yes, that means you! There are so many various forms of creativity and self-expression whether it be cooking, sewing, painting, woodworking, illustrating, writing, movement, spoken word there is a niche for you. It is common for us to believe there are enough people…

The Power of a Flower

This little poem was inspired by sunflower seeds we planted for a client who not only wanted sunflowers planted along their garden but were in need of one of life’s little miracles or blessings. This species of plant is not native to our environment and at almost 9,000 ft the likelihood of its growth was uncertain.

Spring Cleanse & the Unexpected

Hi my friends! Remember way back when (when) I wrote about getting a juicer and wanting to try a juice cleanse? I barely remember either but here it is if you’d like to have a look. Well I decided to finally commit to a 3 day reset over the weekend. Initially I planned to juice only but my mind got the best of me so I settled with no dairy and no processed foods including bread. My typical diet is vegetarian or pescatarian because on occasion I will eat fish. I start everyday with a loaded smoothie, apple cider vinegar w/ water,…

About me, The Long Version

I cringed when I started to write my ‘About Me’ page. As I sat there I thought over and over again “Well, what do I want to say?” “What about me?”  I looked over how others described themselves and their blogs but still found myself struggling to type, even just a starter word. When I began this blog nearly a year ago my intention was to express myself without a filter and also share different lifestyle choices that have worked for me all while making genuine connections. But as I started to dive into the blogging world I found there…

Your Reflection in a Stone

We often speak down to ourselves when we see our reflection in a mirror. We point out lines, rolls, uneven textures and we allow ourselves to feel lesser because we consider these to be blemishes not beauty. We think if we could just change these undesirable flaws we would feel content, we could accept ourselves because we look what we feel is acceptable. What happens when we look at a mountain with its rugged lines and jagged cliffs or when we look into a body of water and see a ripple? We observe in awe, the wonders of nature and the bounty of…

Cup O’ Juice

“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food” Hippocrates In a recent documentary I watched juicing was heavily spoken of and its many health benefits. I am a whole hearted believer in healing from the inside out while encouraging our bodies natural healing mechanisms to facilitate. Smoothies have been a part of my morning routine for a few years now and with my recent injuries I was intrigued to try juicing myself. So we purchased a juicer and have been juicing in addition to our daily smoothies. So far so good! Now I have not committed…
