a new home

I'm thankful for the growth that this space has brought 
but my roots have been needing more space.  

My new home is ready.
Will you join me?

tenacious love

is about persistently seeking 
to love yourself and those around you.

Today I am so excited to share with you a little love that I've been working on. Starting next week, on February 14th, I will be guiding a FREE circle for those interested in growing a tenacious love in your life. 

Tenacious love will be a circle that will receive an email once a week for four weeks to practice and grow that tenacious love in our hearts. We will begin with sharing a little love with ourselves then spiral outward.

All love notes will be provided on Fridays to give you the weekend to prepare and/or start your new intention. Each week I will provide inspiration and you can choose the ones that resonate with you and those around you.

Thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope that it is just the beginning of a tenacious love growing in our hearts and in our world.

light and love,

*sign-up is now closed.

something has gotta give

something has gotta give
there is too much 
on my plate
on my mind
in my heart

something has gotta give
and it can't be 
my hopes
and dreams

it can't be my love
for my family
and our connection

It can't be 
this wild, intimate
pull to live fully

 so I gotta give
the fear 
and worry
that shows on my face
in every cell of my body

I don't want to invest 
all my time
and energy 
on you anymore
decades of devotion 
is enough

"She decided to start living the life she imagined"

I opened my etsy shop last April. It was thrilling to finally, after years of saying I wanted one, to start selling my artwork. To claim the title "artist" and pursue a creative life beyond a small hobby. My husband and I worked together to arrange a schedule that we could try and it was wonderful, for me. During our driving last week we reviewed our rhythm and felt it needed a change, something that worked for both our personalities. You see when you are working on your dreams, all you can do it try. When something isn't working as well as you need it to, allow yourself to try something new. I have had the support of my husband through it all and I want to support his needs too. Following your dreams means you know your needs and the needs of your family and you find a way, to flourish and allow your family to flourish too.

Naturally, I'm using the fresh slate of a new year to spur on some changes, re-evaluate my dreams and goals. I'm checking in with other responsibilities around my home and family life to see what needs a bit of fresh air.

So, I'm sharing my new year joy with you all by having a sale in my shop! 

I hope your new year is full of joy, magic and dreams-come-true. 

light and love,
