one of my goals this year was to really slow down and concentrate on wellness, on taking better care of myself – no matter what deadlines i faced or how much pressure i put on myself to set goals, meet those goals, and enjoy every second of the journey while doing so (yikes). it’s now May (time is flying) and as i walked home from the gym today i realized that i’m holding onto that promise to myself. i feel like i have a new + improved life – one in which i have a bit more control and happiness. i’m getting more sleep. i’m working out with a trainer (feeling stronger physically). i’m taking my vitamins and eating blueberries (new to me). i’m having more fun as i work on balancing all aspects of my life. i’m making plans for the future while still being present here and now. i’m totally settled into life here in california, and loving it (a small miracle in my life). i even made an appt with a dermatologist in hopes of getting some help with my hyperpigmentation (hello, sun damage). i feel more whole. more me. more centered. of course, some days are better than others, but i’m liking this skin.

i feel hopeful. and that feels really, really good (creatively, too).

thank you guys for all the pre-orders the last couple of days. i am overwhelmed in goodness right now, in blessings that hold tight.

can i share with you where i’ve been lately? a picture story…..

i’ve been practicing with my new camera. oh man, loving it. these roses are from the secret garden mati and i found a couple of weeks ago. roses are popping up everywhere around here. it’s really nice to see.
went hunting for seaglass, and found several small pieces, but i look forward to the day when i stumble upon big blue pieces of seaglass – one day.
sometimes, i’ll find bella just like this – all snuggled with her beloved sock monkey (atop our bed, of course). i also love it when her ears are out like this, like she’s taking flight. she’s getting older now – 8 years.
and finally, my latest heart find. do you see it? once you find it, it’s so, so clear – just like love itself.
