Register for This Weekend's Workshop

I am so excited for Saturday. If you haven't yet heard about this workshop click here for more info. There's still time to register and if you enter the coupon code "workshop25" you get $25 off the registration fee.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that my life is good. I can get caught up in the details of living and forget the overall big picture. I can find myself wishing for time to pass or for this or that thing to hurry up and show up which is totally NOT living in the moment or being connected to the present. I have to admit that I've felt s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d lately--both literally and figuratively. I'm 36 weeks pregnant and trust me, that involves a lot of stretching so that's the literal part. But figuratively speaking we're also "birthing" our new home with the major renovation project we took on with Rectangle Design (who we can't say enough amazing things about).

Everything is coming to completion soon and I'm getting anxious to see the final product but how does that take away from my experience in the moment? What am I missing out on?
My goal for the next two weeks is to be patient and connected and focused on just enjoying the process. What can you do to bring yourself more into the present? Give it a try.

Dream big. Imagine. Be inspired.

I love weekends!

We had a lot of fun around here this weekend!! We planted flowers and mowed the lawn and Jake got very good at watering the garden. How is it that two days can fly by so quickly?

Mat built us two raised garden beds this weekend. I've become a huge fan of the "Square Foot Gardening" concept. One box is 4ftX4ft and the other is 4ftX3ft which means we can potentially have 25 different crops of herbs, veggies and flowers AND they make it sound so easy. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. All I know is that there's nothing like home grown vegetables and I love the idea of growing our own produce in our backyard.
We already have a ton of rhubarb so I picked some today and by tomorrow night it will magically become strawberry rhubarb crumble--so good.

Dream big. Imagine. Be inspired.

The literal translation of incommunicado is that one is in a state or condition where one is unable or unwilling to communicate (adverb) OR a manner in which communication with outsiders is not possible for either voluntary or involuntary reasons, especially due to confinement or reclusiveness (adjective). Which one is true for me this past month? It's not that I'm unable or unwilling or confined but perhaps I have chosen to be a bit reclusive....? Maybe. With so much on the go I'm choosing to savor the quiet, non-busy moments which seem few and far between but they are there and I need them. I like them.

Check out this egg free chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe I found on! We tested it in our kitchen today and they're awesome. I think it's fantastic as who doesn't love to eat cookie dough? I know I do and Jake does too but I always worry about the fact that there's raw egg in the dough and we could get sick. Now I don't even need to think twice--yum.

I love this photo!! Talk about a child's true ability to be gentle and generous and love themself. How great it would be if this was sustained throughout our entire life--what would be possible?
