Are you one of those people who only gets certain things for certain stores?
Because I am.
I frequent Trader Joe’s and Aldi more than anything BUT neither of them have the oats I like so I go to Dierbergs for those and for fage yogurt because I’m obsessed. AND Annie’s Burritos because also obsessed. (OH, and the local produce stand because they’re unbeatable on produce. Plus it’s the cutest place ever and makes me so happy!) Then there are items that I refuse to purchase anywhere besides Sam’s Club because the price point is just too good to pass up. I mean, I can get a massive bag of coffee beans at Sam’s for roughly the same price as a small, off brand bag at a regular grocery store and I just am not about that life.
I think we all have our things. Things we like from certain places for certain reasons. Continue reading “Intentional Shopping”
I was on a call with a friend who lives across the country last night, she and I were pointing out things that we’ve been extremely grateful for during the past two weeks with what is going on in the world right now and one that we both agreed on was the ability to cook and prepare meals.
It hit me last week that there is a large majority of Americans that do not know how to cook, like… not even boil an egg.
It made me realize a different level of panic they may have felt in those moments that others may not have, like an actual thought of “how am I going to eat”. Continue reading “Be Prepared”

I thoroughly enjoy rock crawling in my Jeep, and I’m actually pretty good at it–mudding used to be my jam but the clean up isn’t worth it to me anymore.
I was 17 before I ever flew on an airplane. Continue reading “Fun Facts”
You may have heard me talk about how daydreaming is a large part of my daily ritual. Yep, daydreaming.
That’s the term I enjoy, it’s what feels lovely to me. When I sit in my quiet space in the morning I let my mind wander for a while. Sometimes I look around my room and am just filled with gratitude for this space, I notice the books, the candles, the little pieces of my journey I have strategically placed all around me and it makes my soul smile.

“To be calm is the highest achievement of the self.” -Zen proverb
Lately I’ve spent more time in stillness. I’ve learned that on my journey to know myself on a different level, slow has become my preferred place to be.
Even when things are swift or moving quickly, I find myself standing in it all very differently than I have before. Continue reading “Stillness”
I know my worth and last year I made a promise to myself that I would no longer allow anyone to be part time (or half-in) in my world. It’s either we’re in it or we’re not.
I’m not a fan of being something that’s only used when it’s convenient.
We don’t do lukewarm over here anymore.
And while I trust myself and honor that choice, it was difficult to implement and enforce at the beginning… until it became one of the most freeing things I’ve ever done. Continue reading “I Know My Worth”
