I took a short trip to Manzanita yesterday with a couple of girlfriends. This little town holds so much magic for me. It would be a dream to be able to own a little cabin here someday. The weather was gorgeous and so much peace in my soul. Love you, #manzanita! – See more at: http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/detail/1021310411454761888_4682769
NOTICE: You are hereby allowed to be happy, to love yourself, to realize your worth, to believe in great things, and to be treated with love and respect. I’ve seen this quote floating around the Internet, and I adore it. Good reminder going into the weekend, my friends. Have a great one! – See more at: http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/detail/1031236835330443657_4682769

everyday smoothie. I don’t miss the caffeine that much but after having
these daily green smoothies for the last couple of years, I’m addicted.

each hold a “treasure” from the spirit room altar and then say our
prayers. We then beat the drum to close out the day in celebration.
Today he informed me that “being awesome” is when “your light grows so
big that you feel like yourself. I am definitely awesome and so is
everyone else except the bad guys. Well actually they’re awesome but
they make bad choices.”

this day. Breakfast, farmers market, fresh flowers, gardening,
snuggles, and working on a little sitting nook in the backyard (complete
with solar powered twinkle lights <– best invention ever).
we moved in a little over a year ago, we built True a little covered
sandbox. It was awesome until he was over it and never used it. Now we
are repurposing that little structure into a little sitting nook, or as
True calls it, “an outdoor stage.” We made some progress today on it,
but still lots to do: plants, cute outdoor decor, a rug, etc. But I’m
loving where this is going. Solar powered twinkle lights are in there
now and I’m anxious to see how they’ll look when night falls. 
Solar twinkle lights for the definite win. Found via Amazon ;)))

friends. Six weeks until my angel painting class starts. Registration is open and the intro price of $99 is still good for a couple more
weeks. LOVING the response to this class. It’s gonna be a beautiful
constellation of people. All levels welcome.

working a little later than usual (hello Monday!) but I’m digging how
bright it still is at 7:30pm. Loving these long summer days. Also, had a
great convo with a licensing partner for my new brand, True. We’re
totally gonna create a baby line of goodies. It’s going to happen,

Dear You,
Remember, nothing is wasted and everything shapes us.

been in major summer mode lately. Lounging, weeding, watching WAY to
much Nashville (started binge watching from the beginning – new show for
me. Love!), napping, playing, and procrastinating. I don’t want summer
to stop. It’s been the first summer in years that has felt sloow and not
ridden with too much activity. Best summer ever.

Wednesday, August 26

the day with two peeps – Betsy from February 13 Creative, and my community care and engagement manager Nichole – who have changed not just my biz life in the
last couple of years, but my life life. We look oddly posed and “cool”
in this photo but mostly we were giggly, chatty, and in celebration mode
for all that we’ve created together as a team. Big huge gratitude in my
heart for these two soul sisters.

We’re in gorgeous Manzanita for one last summer adventure before preschool starts next week. It’s
our home away from home and we sure do love it here. Working on
manifesting a beach home here for the future!

That’s it for this week! Check back here next week for another update, or join us over on Instagram for daily photos and thoughts!

Sending much love,
