Katie Daisy and I were internet friends and then she bought our 1974 VW Orange bus in 2012 I think it was. We continue to stay in touch and we even share an awesome business manager, Betsy! Katie is an incredible artist. I adore her, her family, her artwork and I’m super excited about her new book (preview here) How To Be A Wildflower which is coming out via Chronicle books super soon. Hello inspiration. Hello sweetness and wild and freedom vibes. Can’t wait to get my hands on this book! (? by @katieisadaisy from her awesome feed)

Embrace the imperfections
The chaos
The holy mess of your beautiful life…

Saturday, January 30

Today it’s a facial (self care), picking up meds for Lulu’s UTI (doggie care), picking up my computer that died and got repaired (work care), cleaning out my car (car care), picking up all the dog ? in the backyard (poo care), and a quick pick up of the house (home care). Whew! My goal? To do it all with my word of the year (devotion) in mind. These cares are sacred and deserve to be seen and held as such. Even picking up ? is an act of love. That’s what I’m telling myself, folks!

Surrender your fear and trust your journey and love love love.

Wishing you the best for this Monday, my friends. 

Tired, but here. Also, you guys. I am still playing with letting my hair do its natural wave thing, but it’s so inconsistent. So yesterday I bought one of those Conair super curler things – like the ones they show on TV where it sucks in your hair and then spits it out curly? Well, y’all, it works! And with zero product in my hair! I’m loving it! Having some friends over later this week so we can have girlie geek out fun with it. Have you tried it? I can’t get over this thing.

She decided it was time to trust her joy, her voice, her wings. 

Truth: I have been in a cycle of on and off sick for months. Some of you have noticed and have wondered what the heck? Me too! Mainly it’s been flu like stuff, sinus stuff, congestion and inflammation stuff. Nothing major, but enough to knock me down, and often. I’ve tried various things, but this week I’m tackling it with major devotion. I started IV immune boosters, accupuncture, and had an allergy test with my naturopath. I’m also working with my western med doc for blood tests, including hormones. And I’m also starting the Whole 30
again (no dairy/sugar/gluten). I’m feeling optimistic. I’m also feeling compassion for anyone suffering from chronic illness. These last few months have been quite hard on my mental health, trying to keep routines while battling being constantly
under the weather. My heart goes out to anyone dealing with chronic conditions. I’ll keep you guys posted, but meanwhile send up some good vibes and energy my way. ?❤️

Thursday, February 4

Woke today feeling energized and ready to tackle the day. It’s POURING outside which makes it more adventurous. Thanks for all the love and support yesterday. I’m hopeful it’s a simple solution and that it will be revealed soon. In the meantime, much gratitude to all who are holding space for me. It means the world. Also, I’m still mesmerized and addicted to the Conair secret super curl thing that sucks in my hair and spits it out curly. It’s the little things and it’s lifting my spirits for sure. ❤️

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!

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
