Viva Mexico!

Hello sunshine, sleeping in, chips + guacamole (+ maybe a margarita or two!).

PS- He crawled under the blankets as I was packing last night. I can barely handle the cuteness!

What if we said no to rushing?

What if we refused to participate in this continual game of
getting it all done
and instead slowed down.
living each moment with intention + gratitude.
How much joy would be find in the ordinary moments?

Like brewing a cup of coffee.
Making pancakes.
Feeling the sunlight on your skin as you sit in your dining room,
just taking it all in.

Life is meant to be savored. 

For me today, this means:
Extra sleep.
Morning light.
Delicious coffee.
A quiet house.
His word.

What are you savoring today, friends?

uncover your truths

I am ready.
I am ready.
I am ready. 

These are the words that came to me one day,
out of the blue.
Driving alone in the car.

They made me weep. 
Rain poured down all around me

I can't say for certain I understand just yet what 'I am ready' for...
but I find extreme comfort in knowing that I am.

I just want to...

There is something to be said about letting your creativity out to play.
To create simply for the joy of creating.
To enjoy the process.
To be in the moment.
To stop worrying if people will like it.
To make time for YOU.

Because at the end of the day,

I just want to move my hands
and get them messy
and create something.

I'm a habitual maker + follower of lists, and tend to feel most accomplished at the end of the day if I've been able to scribble out everything on said list. But you know what rarely makes it onto my daily to-dos? Self care. Time in the studio to "play" and create whatever comes straight from my heart that wants to be seen.

I'm learning that life is much too short to deprive ourselves of what truly makes us come alive. Because I can tell you right now, while washing dishes and folding laundry may be on my list, they just are not doing it for me. Maybe it's time to overthrow the system....;)
