Despite all the suffering in the world, in the face of pain and sadness and confusion, there is just as much (if not more) beauty, tenderness, joy and love. In my humble blog, I intend to hold space here for these qualities - the positive and negative. I feel like I am an ambassador of sorts to inspire you, cheer you on, and keep things real, even if it means admitting darkness (and I have done this in some of my blog posts). Today, I say to you: May you all allow yourself to feel your feelings in these crazy times and know you are not alone. We are all in this together, and we all do the best we can.
When things get too overwhelming for me, I go into the mountains. How lucky I am to live amidst so many vast mountain ranges teeming with wild energy. One of my sweet friends and I, with our children, hiked to a gorgeous mountain lake the other day. A few days before that hike, I took my kids and their friend to explore another region that fed our souls. I would love to share the beauty with you here.

Ah, come on, let's give you more of it. I walked through my garden a couple of days ago and want to share the beauty that lingers there. Surround yourself with beauty. Spend time with a friend who is not afraid of big feelings. Give gratitude. Bravely live your truth. Be gentle with yourselves, sweethearts...
