Hi friends,

BIG things are swirling over here and my heart can barely handle the serendipity of it all. I have signed a lease for a sweet little retail space here in my newish (we moved here a year ago!) little town of Sisters, Oregon !! It will be called SoulShine & Co. and it will open in a few short months.

I can’t wait to share the whole experience with you.


This has been a LONG time dream of mine, something I thought was a few years away, but Spirit had other ideas and I have said YES. I can’t wait to create a happy and loving retail space full of thoughtfully curated art + gifts.

Hello, DREAM COME TRUE. I am nervous. Excited. A little worried about how I’ll get it all done and also not worried at all.



I am also committed to doing all of this with wellness and self-care as my top priority as to not travel the hard learning paths of my previous years when I overdid all the things. Alignment over hustle, always.

I can hardly believe this is happening!


And also, I’m just in awe. If you go back and read a few posts back (the one of me and John), you can feel the beginnings of possibility beginning to swell up. All of the simplifying we’ve been doing these last couple of years. All of the burning down what no longer serves. All the leaps and letting go and creating space. It has fully led us to this moment.

I’ll have to share what’s happening in John’s world when it’s all official but it’s SO GOOD. We are traveling these dream paths together.

I am reminded of the power of creating space in our lives so that good things can drop in with ease. My word this year is Ease, and it has felt just like that. Easy. Divinely led. And perfect.

And so! I’m working away on creating an amazing retail space.  I can’t wait to jump into the world of shopkeeping as a way to support an economy that is centered around art and makers and small biz and big hearts.

My heart is full!
