In December, I like to have a ritual of intentionally opening myself up to the Universe for inspiration about next steps. Part of that inspiration usually takes the form of a video. I don't actively take steps to "find" an inspirational video, but I do click on videos I would typically skip over in hopes of finding "the one."Read More
At the end of 2016, I wrote these three words to ring in 2017...
Declutter. Recover. Rediscover.
Here's how that year went.Read More
This upcoming January 1st date has really lit the fire under me to wrap up some things I've been procrastinating on--like revealing this office. I started envisioning this office space during the Autumn Equinox while considering what things in my life needed to "fall away" to make space for the "new" (or perhaps--to make space for the "return of the light").Read More
Some photos from our very merry Christmas glamping experience with Airbnb. It was so wonderful just to get away and reflect on the blessings and challenges of the year and RESET for 2018 (while eating lots of food and watching lots of movies).Read More
Here’s a curation (or “buffet") of not-so-common ideas and information about Christmas for your holiday enjoyment. For each piece of information, I included some links to encourage further research and conversation. Linking a source doesn’t mean I endorse the ideas contained within. Each link is simply something I found through a very basic internet search. Also something to put in the “interesting” stack that may/may not be used later.
The intention of this post was to stretch my imagination about what could possibly be and share my findings with you. This is NOT a post implying that we should get rid of Christmas, Frosty, Santa and replace it with something else (even though I would not be opposed :-)).
Cheers to exposing our awareness to a diet of various perspectives that challenge and encourage growth, including ideas that we may initially disagree with. May we have the strength to look beyond the veil and maintain an open, yet skeptical, mind.Read More

Approximately 4000 years ago, many of the astrological signs and constellations were established, and they have affected our society to the modern day. Our ancestors were intimately connected with the stars, immersed by them at night, and observed them to monitor the rhythms of nature. They created the core of astrological symbolism which has since evolved.
Some thoughts on the history of astrology, how what we believe came to be, and a Rent the Runway outfit with a side of West Elm palms.Read More
The latest episode of the Star Wars saga comes out in theaters this week. I haven't seen anything but the trailer, because I want to go into this episode open-minded. I'm excited (have had my tickets for almost a month) but a little bit apprehensive to what may go down in this LONGEST Star Wars episode EVER. I already have my sense of knowing what I think is going to go down, but I'll keep them to myself for now...but on second thought...Read More
Alex and I have had a pretty busy two weeks with our work, so we decided to really set aside Saturday to do something out of the ordinary. We got in the truck and started driving around some formerly unexplored parts of North Central (ish) Houston. After checking another Whole Foods location off of my list, we randomly stopped into some open houses to check them out.Read More
