Sunday morning snuggle buddy. πŸ’™
*
*
Her bed is down at the foot of mine, but apparently the crook of my knees is waaaaaaay more comfy. "Don't get up and do Primary Series, MommyPerson! Wouldn't you rather convince those other lively people we live with who are mulling around noisily and waaaaay too gleefully for this time of day to bring us something delicious and spend the morning right here?!"
*
*
I think she makes a great case. *

Sometimes you just need nachos!
*
*
Whipped these up in no time with mostly organic ingredients! Combining my geographical roots here with SoCal influenced nachos and Miami influenced Puerto Rican style black beans and rice. Comfort food for this desert dweller in the midst of so much outer world energy this week. I like making even the most comforting foods as nutrient dense as possible and with these fun #traderjoes ingredients that was simple! And #delish!!!
*

Sending a little extra love out to people who were affected by the mudslides and earthquake in Mexico a bit ago, and to everyone in Puerto Rico still dealing with the aftermath of the fall hurricanes. Just because we don't see their stories every day in the news, those people are still suffering and still in need of our support. Along with so many! We are one. If one of us suffers, we all do. One of my personal/professional missions is to help connect people to charitable organizations doing great work in the world.

THIS. *

We need so much more of this in schools and homes. *
*
So. Much. More. This. *
*
I want to say something useful, poignant, inspirational about the ridiculous gun law debate in America, but I'm at a loss for words on the heels of the 13th school shooting in 2018 (which happened to take place at a high school my high school played football against, just months after my current hometown was brutally shocked by a mass shooting, which took place practically minutes after and before school shootings!). So, instead, I'll be on my mat. *

Celebrating love. In its truest, purest, spirit-igniting way..... with a cake pan twist on my Fruity Vegan Banana Bread in "cranana-pecan crunch" style for brekkie. *
*
This modern incarnation of Valentine's Day is silly. And yet, it's an opportunity for us all to take a breath of love into our hearts, to celebrate anyone we love, and remember to love ourselves more deeply. So. I'll play! And, no matter where you are, where you've been, where you might be heading, know this: YOU ARE LOVE and YOU ARE LOVED!! We all are. It's just the way it is; a universal law! Reach out to someone you care about today and tell them something to the effect of, "Hey! You're like love walking around this world! How cool are you?!"
*
*
Also. It's my dog's birthday. (Tillentine's Day πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜) There will be eggs in her bowl and extra snuggles in our laps. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ So, NamastYAY!!

Just another manic Monday. ....... NOT! Thanks to yoga retreat weekend, sunshine, a beautiful yoga practice this morning, choosing my pace (regardless of stuff to do, expectations, pressure.... just letting it go!), and this delicious juice for brekkie: whole apples, whole oranges, carrots, kale. DELISH!
*
*
Still glowing inside and out after our Seasonal Yoga Retreat Day!! πŸ’— Thanks, yogis for joining me, shining your light upon me, and letting me share!

Yesterday, I took a day for self love. Changing my entire life the past 7 months has been insane and fun and stressful and inspiring and exhausting! Glad to have a minute to breathe and restore. What have you done to give yourself love recently? One cannot heal the world around them without healing themself first.

One picture.
*
*
I spent 10 hours today with 10 radiant yogis (and one superfabulous assistant!) and I took only one photo. One. It's not the most artful shot you'll ever see, but it's got so much heart in it. This is savasana at the end of our yoga retreat day this evening. I am still basking in the sweetness of today. Continuing to drink it all in. A long day that seems fleeting now. A day full of deep thoughts, gentle shares, incredible insights, giant laughs, the fullness of breath, true gratitude, fun creativity, open heartedness, releasing our emotional sherpas, connectivity, unity, camaraderie, self love, reflection, exploration, restoration, flow, deliciousness, kindness, willingness..... there aren't enough words. I am so thankful. So in awe. So lit up. πŸ’—

Creamy. Crunchy. Salty. Green. = my favorite flavor profiles. *
*
This covers the creamy, salty, greens part! GREENS GRATIN! The perfect comfort food after a day of final #yogaretreatday prep to go alongside our #tofurky bratwurst. *
*
The lighting in my kitchen after dark at winter dinnertime is terrible right now, but trust me, this is delicious and beautiful! .... As is my gorgeous little bowl made by the incredibly gifted, @artsygirl1029! Thank you, lady!!

-Baby Kale and Spinach
-Shallots
-Garlic

-Cheddar

all organic!
(could have used some arrowroot starch or a little flour to absorb some of the greens liquid that cooked off during baking...next time, because there will definitely be a next time!)

(A beloved yogi who was joining us will be off on a totally different kind of adventure this weekend, as she's just found out her school residency will begin in Arizona on Monday. Phew! Lots to do including, you know, MOVE to Arizona over the weekend! LOL! So, she's giving up her retreat spot. Wishing you well, my friend!!)
*
On a whim, because I made sure to prep a little extra in case of latecomers, I'm throwing it out there that I'm open to another attendee - or possibly two, if there's a yoga buddy situation. Now is your chance!! Click the link in my bio to get the details and sign up NOW. *

Poetry Tea Time - Poetry Bee Time.
*
*
Restorative yoga practice followed by restorative yoga study time, and now this (with loads of other random, squirrely work, parenting, homeschool, house-y, tea making odds and ends between πŸ˜‰). Quite a lovely day in our little yoga inspired garden neck of the woods! (An oddly warm winter has caused things to bloom way early in sunny spots of our garden. Enjoying the bees almost as much as the scent of lavender!)

Smoothi bowl for brekkie in the middle of January?? Even for our warmer climate this was a chilly choice! But I finally made a soft-serve texture I like (usually these are lost on me, I like my smoothies through a straw and all the other goodies on the side) and this is all the wee girl wanted today. So, extra vitamin C and omegas in a bowl of frozen cherries, frozen pineapples, raspberry vitC powder, raw local honey, dragon fruit powder, yoghurt, walnuts, hemp granola and strawberries it was! Not a bad choice after morning rituals, yoga and meditation. Feeling healthy, fueled by natural goodness and loved from the inside out! That's how I hope to help you feel at the winter yoga retreat day. πŸ’— Click the link in my bio for details. REGISTER TODAY! IT'S THE LAST DAY TO RECEIVE 15%OFF!!

About to try my hand at baked fried green tomatoes -- haven't made them in years! -- with tomatoes we saved from our garden before a freeze. They've been waiting and waiting in our fridge and after the most amazing week of leading the #greatlessons with my awesome partner in time and absolutely incredible #homeschool friends, this seems like a relaxing way to spend a Saturday afternoon. πŸ…πŸ’šπŸ…

The house is dark and quiet and, here it is, time to literally wipe the slate clean for 2018. *

I can't do it. Totally cried a little as I attempted to erase December 2017. Chickened out! 😊Keeping this sweet reminder of the holidays one more night and watching #thecrown instead. *

I hope you're feeling happy and full of gratitude, love, support, and all the things you need to make 2018 a wonderful year to bloom fully right where you are!
*

2018's been GREAT so far. Time spent sweetly with many of my favorite people. A fire going in the backyard with such happy kids toasting and roasting and imagining. Goal setting, dreaming, reflecting and lots of laughing. All is grownups and the kiddos had lots of fun with our @biglifejournal printables, too!
*

I'm #grateful !!

Homemade biscotti going back in the oven for their final toasting. Enjoying this special time surrounded by twinkly lights and my most beloved loved ones. Missing many loved ones far away who pop into our hearts as we bake and sing and make wishes. So grateful for the incredible people in our day to day lives whom we love so. *
*
This year we made chocolate chip, cherry-pine nut, anisette, almond, and fig filled (with homemade jam!). *
*
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!! I hope you've been enjoying a peaceful, calm, joyous time so far, and that as the holidays continue your wishes become intentions and affirmations and truth! I hope you feel loved and grateful and happy and festive in all the ways you enjoy most!!

I LOVE this time of year getting holiday wishes from loved ones in the good old post mail!
*
*
I haven't sent out a holiday card in a long time. (I used to hand make them! HA! The free time I had πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ - makes me laugh to think of it now! And makes me realize I haven't been sending them because part of my brain thinks I shouldn't bother if I'm not going to hand make cards! Wow. Talk about shadow-y self-imposed pressure! My friend calls me an "overachiever". I'm beginning to see what she means. πŸ€”πŸ˜‚..... although, note the gorgeous family picture stamp on one of these. That's a thing??? Amazing!! Delightful!! And now I can call this friend who made those an overachiever. HA! Balance.) I do love cards and letters, though!!

Happy holiday season!!

Made myself an upliftingly scented #soycandle in an old #quotablecandles glass sporting a favorite -- and necessary today -- quote. *
*
Had a rough night after putting too much pressure on myself which resulted in me losing my temper on my amazing child. I'm thankful for a rapid recovery and my ability to apologize and put into words what stress feels like and what it can cause in a way that (I hope!) an 8 year old can understand. Not feeling super proud or aligned so I'm heading back to the drawing board of practice. Once again learning monkey mind can be strong, shadow-self can be a trickster, and that life is full of magic and miracles in the midst of messes and mistakes. Like the butterfly who, in December(!!!) fluttered around me for hours outside yesterday and let us watch it drinking from our lantana flowers while we decorated the house for solstice and Christmas. An unusual occurrence for this time of year. And now I see it was a lovely natural reminder. The butterfly is my spirit animal. Awakening gently today with the help of my mat and words of wise women who love me more than I love myself when I'm out of balance. Oh. Maybe I should do some balancing postures. Duh. Didn't think of that. See. I've been told, "Monkey Mind will make you blind, deaf, and dumb!" Back to the mat. I bet I fall over a lot!
