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...

The views from the helicopter really were something special! A once in a lifetime adventure, that's for sure. Thanks Caitlin! 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

Thanks Andi! Too bad your guy axed the tandem bike! They are sort of hard to control, so unless they're electric, I can see why he'd not be into them ;)

Hi friend. I''d love to share some stories and photos of our recent lakeside getaway.... Three hours east from the city, just past the spot where Hal proposed, we landed in the charming little town of Lake Chelan. It's a fairly popular weekend destination for Seattlites, known for wine tasting and lake sports, but unbelievably, this was our first time visiting. And after being greeted with a surprise wine basket from Campbell's Resort, we couldn't have felt more welcome in our plush and comfy lakefront room. Campbell's location cannot be beat. Historic downtown was just steps away. We explored boutiques,... Continue reading

You're welcome Alison! I think the best way to practice showing happiness is when you're alone. No one around to judge or make you feel foolish. I think that's why a lot of people tend to hold their excitement inside. xo

That's my sweet little niece. Or shall I say big niece? She just turned two! There's no way you can be around Ayana and not smile. Her zest and enthusiasm for life is wildly contagious. That's my favorite thing about children. How they innately express their joy. They know of no other way to be. As we grow up, most of us develop a filter for our positive emotions. As teenagers, we learned to play it cool in fear of looking too eager or immature. But when we stifle our authentic joy, we're holding ourselves back from happiness, according to... Continue reading
