gentle.

The first thing I say to a mama traveling this difficult path is a seemingly simple message. Be gentle, I say. Be gentle.   And I think, somewhere, that resonates and perhaps she hears me.  But more often than not, I think, we hear that, make a few minor adjustments to allow for some space in our lives, […]

Post-Holiday Words of Love…

My friend, Jennifer Kaiton, is one of those people that you meet her and know that she is a little bit magical.  Perhaps more than a little bit.  Before the holidays, I asked her to share some of her story and some advice as to how one can navigate the holidays with a little more […]

My darlings, the turn towards darkness is upon us.  Daylight Savings Time ended, causing night fall to occur ridiculously early here in the Pacific NorthWest.  I adore my long sunshine filled days, and was sort of dreading the arrival of early nightfall.  It can be so dark.  So very dark.  There were a couple years when […]

worth it.

Well friends. For a little while now I had been walking along, minding my own business, thinking I had it all under control and then tap tap tap the dreaded best came knocking at my door. Again. I thought we were done, I thought I had kicked her out, but there she was – anxiety. […]

autumn love

Sweet ones.  If I can offer one opportunity for “YES TO THIS” at this time of year, it is simple – go outside.  And I’m going to keep this post very simple.  Not much needs to be said. A week later, I am still reverberating from a weekend in the middle of the woods.  I […]
