A New Hobby

I’ve finally done it!  I have finally learned how to knit.  I have been wanting to learn since I was in high school and a new friend of mine took an afternoon to teach me.  Well, it wasn’t really an afternoon, more like 30 minutes to teach me and then we spent the afternoon sipping […]

I first fully embraced this term at the beginning of the year when I stumbled upon Lara Casey.  If you haven’t heard of her yet, I strongly recommend you click her name and browse her website (her blog is one of my favorites).  She recently released her new book, Cultivate, and although I was eager […]

Monthly Goals – September

I came in with guns blazing for the month of August, my last full month in Australia.  I had high hopes but within the first week I quickly realized that I just made one HUGE checklist for myself.  A “Honey-Do” list for myself that left me doing things are opposed to cultivating what actually matters […]

 Credit About 2 years ago TED Talk came to Denver and I applied to be a speaker.  I was freshly out of treatment and felt that I had so much to say about my experience and I wanted to share all of the helpful tidbits of information I had accumulated over the several months before.  […]

Pushing Publish

Writing is something that feeds me.  Being able to express myself either on social media, this blog, or my journals is one of my favorite forms of self-care.  I adore the written word.  However, I am also a wannabe perfectionist. I struggle with the process and I want to just be good at writing.  When […]

What’s in a name? 

Kal-El and I have talked about our future a handful of times and one of my favorite futuristic things to talk about besides our trips around the globe are our potential future children’s names.  I am huge on making sure that my children will have some part of their name tie back to the family.  […]

Alice Update

I cannot believe that we are four weeks away from heading back to the states.  Six weeks has flown by and although I have settled into the slow lifestyle of the outback, I am ready to be back working and creating a home with Kal-El in a place that we will be in together for […]

Good Luck, Bad Luck, Who Cares?

I used to say that I had the worst luck in the world.  Instead of Murphy’s Law, there was Ash’s Law.   “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong’, had morphed into, “everything just goes wrong”.   My friends and I would laugh at the silliest things that would pop up in my day and cause […]

Monthly Goals- August

I have become obsessed with Lara Casey and her Powersheets.  I haven’t actually purchased any because they sold out before I was settled enough to buy them so I have been creating my own version of these “Tending Lists” in my journal.  I absolutely love what these have done for my goal setting and accountability […]

“One More Light”

The loss of Chester Bennington has not been unnoticed in our home this past week.  Kal-El has listened to Linkin Park since their mainstream debut in 2001 with their album Hybrid Theory and has been allowing their albums to play into the soundtrack of his life ever since.  It’s needless to say that he was […]
