The Internet Pledge

Like most people in America a part of my life is connected to the internet. While getting lost in the inter webs this past week I stumbled upon this Internet Pledge and I absolutely adore it! I highly recommend that you join me (and countless others) in making the Internet a less cowardly and cruel […]

Trigger Warning

Over the long weekend Kal-El and I traveled to Colorado to celebrate his best friend retiring after 20 years in the Air Force and that weekend I had planned a long weekend celebrating my best friend in Florida. Her celebration, however, was for her life. I met her during a really tough breakup for me […]

Our Neighbors: The Prairie Dogs

When Kal-El and so started looking for houses in Clovis before we moved from Australia we were in a bit of a panic.  For those of you who may not know, the military, as part of your pay, provides a living stipend each month.  We are very fortunate to have this but we quickly realized […]

Grey Area with God

 There is this thing about God that really gets me.  He cannot be shoved into boxes.  He is not this black and white being that we can precisely dictate how he actually feels or thinks or sees us.  Nope.  He is so much bigger than that.  So grand and elegant and it Blows. My. […]

November Tending List

I am so excited about this coming month.  I fell off the goal-setting bandwagon almost as quickly as I had started it, which is VERY typical of me.  But, I credit a LOT of that to the fact that I was making little to-do lists as opposed to setting goals that would help me build […]

Gratitude for Fear

Gratitude for fear?? What?! Isn’t that, like, an oxymoron?! I’ve had this topic on my mind for a few months, maybe even a year now, and the anxiety it creates in my heart still radiates as I type these words to you.   There has always been a sliver of who I am that sits, basks […]

Big Magic ✨

I just finished Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Big Magic, and I loved it.  It was a quick read for me and also felt so liberating.   For years I had pressured myself into either doing things perfectly or to not do anything creative at all.  This even stemmed down to folding towels for me…if the towel […]

Challenge 22

Photo Credit I listen to Rachel Brathen’s (aka Yoga Girl) podcast, From the Heart: Conversations with Yoga Girl.  Today I listened to the podcast in which she interviewed James Aspey and the topic was on veganism.  Now before you click to the next blog, I encouraged you to listen to the podcast with an open mind.  He wasn’t […]

Yoga Ego: Inside Out

I was so blessed to get connected with the local yoga studio in town (575 Yoga) as soon as we arrived to Clovis. The owner, Iwona, and I agreed that in exchange for my taking over the studios marketing (it was my minor in college) I would get a free yoga membership.  Most yoga enthusiasts […]

Think Less, Be More

Photo Credit “We spend too much time listening to ourselves and not enough time talking to ourselves.” – Steven Furtick I spent a lot of time by myself in Australia and as most people would suspect, I spent a lot of time in my own head.  Some moments of that quiet time were really refreshing.  […]
