I believe it’s a time of transformation but I recognize that unfortunately, I won’t wake up one day changed. I know the changes will be subtle. I’m consciously putting lotion on my body in the morning and at night. I’m drinking tea, I’m trying to get to bed earlier, I’m trying to eat before 9 every night mostly though, I’m trying to remember to practice everyday. Practice what I am wanting to bring more of into my life. Practice, kindness, confidence, creativity, love, vulnerability and generosity.

My friend Myriam sent these words over recently in an email. I read them over and over again, thinking to myself yes, yes, me too, me too.

I have been so aware this past year since becoming a mama how sloooowwwly personal tranformation happens. While babies seem to speed toward milestones, growth, and change, my own personal transformation has been the opposite: from a life of moving super fast to a life of happily moving at a snails pace. Each day, the personal transformation movements are micro shifts. It’s slow, deliberate, and powerful.

Lately, I’ve been noticing the transformation of my own life by the shifts in my perspective. I no longer have the kind of ambition I used to have. I’m cutting back on work projects in efforts to simplify. I’m not as bothered by the fact that it takes days and weeks to accomplish a single task. I’m working on  bringing more domestic craft in my life. I’m focusing on documenting every single day of remarkableness with baby True. I’m focusing, one tiny moment at at time, on bringing more personal pampering into my daily moments – lotion, candles, quiet, nesting.

This all feels worlds different from my life one year ago, yet it’s so hard to explain. It’s a quiet transformation. A back to the basics transformation. A slow one. I suppose I’m slowly working my way back to the most simplest life I can live. One that focuses on the beauty of the everyday with my family. It goes by so fast. I want to continue slowing myself down so I don’t miss a thing.

Transformation. I’m so thankful for the choices we get, every single day.

The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

  Recently, I was ordering my usual oat milk mocha at my favorite coffee shop when the young man at the counter, a barista, casually asked, "Whatcha doing today?" I shrugged my shoulders and answered, "Not much, just a little work." "Oh, cool," he said. "What do...
