Oh thank you Caitlin! Best of luck on tapping into your intuition more. I'm glad to hear you're already putting it into practice! xo
Yes - let the heart rule! My new motto :) I hope you'll keep me posted on your intuition progress Christel! xo
Oh girl, me too. Sometimes I'm amazed by how my left brain takes over! I absolutely love that quote! xo
Ooh yes, such a perfect lyric Cheryl! :) xo
You should hang a hammock inside your apartment! A friend of mine did this and it looked beautiful :) xo

Ah Tulum, my honeymoon destination! You're right, people LIVE in hammocks there. I hope you get one on your balcony soon! xo

When I lived in an apartment, all I dreamt of was a backyard. Or patio where I could sip iced tea and lounge in the shade of a lemon tree. And now that I have one, I hardly spend any time in it. Gasp! I know, so sad. Outdoor space takes maintenance and when life gets messy, mowing the lawn and pruning trees is the last thing on my list. But it's time to appreciate what I've got, especially now that I'm working from home. This weekend, I'm inspired to hang a few lights, dust off the hammock, and create... Continue reading

Thank you Angela. I know exactly what you mean. My intuition hides itself when I'm consumed with grief and sadness too. That's the most important time to go find it again :) xo
Oh that makes me so happy knowing it's what you needed to, Jessica. I love your description of the universe flowing through us. I absolutely agree! Knowing the best time to listen to intuition has helped me a great deal. Love and hugs to you my friend. xo
I love when that happens! When I write about something that I personally need for myself, but it connects with other people who need it too. I'm so sorry you're going through a rough patch Catherine. I feel ya. Please be gentle with yourself and try this technique. I really think it could help. HUGS! xo
Ha! I know you too well. Grocery stores seem to force your Ultradian Healing Response to happen!

My good friend, Intuition, has been nagging me to introduce her. She's the little voice inside my head that steers me in the right direction, makes good choices and alerts me when I step off course. She gives me clarity, relief and enthusiasm. And lights the way to my dreams. I've known her all my life, but not until recently have I made her a priority. She'll often butt heads with my other friend, Intellect, who has a rather limited perspective of the world, basing ideas on external norms of what's considered acceptable. Intellect has been a solid companion over... Continue reading

Love YOU the most Melstar! I think you and David should buy a motorcycle and we can meet you halfway... say, North Dakota? :)

Eyeing: the Floral Arranging 101 e-course taught by Chelsea Fuss of Frolic! I've always been enamoured by floral design and I'd love to discover what really goes into making an effortless, just-picked-from-the-garden look. There are some technical tricks I'd love to learn. And I really wouldn't mind having fresh blooms hanging around the house for 4 weeks! Has anyone taken this class before? Trying: to stay positive after a disheartening personal event left me feeling rather empty. I promise to tell you more when the time is right. You know me, I'm a fairly open book. But for now, I'd...

It really is Jessica! And it's much more peaceful and relaxing than it looks! :) xo

Seattle's known for rocky beaches, but you'd be surprised to find a few soft and sandy spots around town that almost make you feel like you're in California. I've yet to go this summer, but this heat wave is enticing me to spend a relaxing afternoon by the shore. Here are a few of my recent sea-inspired Etsy faves....

The heli-tour was nuts! Especially with the doors off. I hope you can cross it off your bucket list one day soon Julie! :) xo
