Ash Wed 3/6

Woah! What a time. A lot of seeds that I’ve planted over the past year are taking root and sprouting. If my life had a season.. it would be SPRING! Things are shifting, sprouting and rising up, up, up. It’s overwhelming and beautiful. For those of you who don’t know- Andrew and I bought our first house! An 1870’s farm on 5 acres in Morgantown, PA. I start my new job working on an organic sustainable agriculture farm April 1st. I’m converting our barn into a place for gathering- yoga, farm-to-table dinner parties and workshops. I’ll be announcing a winter retreat soon too! What I’m reading:       What I’m listening to: I started making this new playlist for when we’re moving and painting the new house!

They are a 100% organic and operate off their farm in Vermont. I look forward to my skin care routine every night. Shop here: https://www.tataharperskincare.com/ Word of the week: Community. If there is one things that I know for sure it’s that, WE NEED EACH OTHER. We cannot do life alone. Making deep connections with others, helping someone and asking nothing in return, listening (really listening), making eye contact, offering a hug, sharing your wealth, gathering, supporting, reaching out..being present in the abundance of people around you! There’s so many of us here, but we’re not really here. How is it possible that so many feel so alone in a world of 7.7 billion people? What would it take to step away from your busyness and call a friend, help a neighbor, meet and support your local farmer- we are …

  What I’m reading: Simon Hill has a really in depth blog on leading a plant based lifestyle. He answers the most common questions and gives really handy tips that I’ve been loving. I feel so good about my diet right now- how it makes me feel mentally and physically, and the impact it has on the environment.

Shop it here. Word of the week: Beauty: Opening …

Ash Wed 12/5

What I’m reading: I’ve been really enjoying this book by Leo Buscaglia. If you are in a teaching role of any kind (parents included!) you should read this book!

Word of the week: Forgiveness. anger, anger, anger keeps reminding me to invite in compassion, compassion compassion. Remembering that everyone is doing the best they can. Remembering that I am doing the best that I can. Through this remembrance I am filled with forgiveness. Quote of the week :  

Ash Wednesday 10/17

What I’m reading: What I’m listening to: Good mix of tunes I’ve been listening to while I work behind the buddha bar making medicine! Product I’m loving: THE CRISP FALL AIR. GO OUTSIDE ❤ Word of the week: Reciprocity. This word has been ringing through my mind ever since I read Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass. I’m most interested in this word as it relates to our relationship with Earth. The Earth provides us with an abundance of everything that we could ever need but yet we are constantly asking “How can we take more?”. The earth gives and gives but what do we offer back in return? How can we make the exchange a two way street? I think an exchange like this with the earth would lead us to the answer to one of the most essential question as a human, “What is my unique gift?”. Read this if you want to hear more on reciprocity. OR better yet, read the whole book. It’s the most beautiful book I’ve ever read. Quote of …

What I’m reading: Chief Seattle’s Letter to the President in 1952. It’s so damn beautiful. “This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” What I’m listening to: With each passing year I find the whisper of ‘less’ growing louder. When I think of what wealth would look like for me it’s big open fields, wild animals and dirty hands from the garden.  A simple life, in harmony with nature makes my heart swell. What does wealth look like for you? What does it feel like? Enjoy this playlist inspired by a simple life in nature.. Product I’m loving: These outdoor incense sticks have been a life saver these past few weeks. My little beach bungalow is surrounded by trees and with all this rain that we’ve been getting, the mosquitos have been …
