Build From Desire

When was the last time you played? In our culture, we tend to think that as an adult, “play” means to lie inert on a beach towel drinking a margarita.  Besides the fact that most of us can only access this kind of vacation vibe once a year at most, we are missing out on [...]

The Magic of 2020

I am SO excited to welcome in a brand-new year and a brand-new decade. The past few years for me have been about letting go of what isn’t working.  This year I’m getting ready to welcome in lots of brand-new things that are AWESOME. It’s sort of like how you have to let go of [...]

Did anyone else have a big, beautiful, brutal year?

Did anyone else have a big, beautiful, brutal 2019? For me, it was a year of big change. Beautiful transformation. And yes, many brutal things - brutal honesty, brutal growing pains.  But as Glennon Doyle says, life is brutiful. The brutal and the beautiful often go hand-in-hand.

the challenge of asking for support

Have you ever stopped yourself from asking for help because… I should be able to do this on my own. No one else will do it right. Good [moms/employees/entrepreneurs/daughters] don’t ask for help. Or maybe you’ve thought that if you ask for support you’re a failure. That needing help means you’re not good at what [...]

beauty + connection

Here’s what I know to be true: the two things that make life worth living are beauty and connection. Beauty in your physical space: design choices that make your heart smile; artwork and photos that showcase your true personality; mementoes, flowers or candles that add the perfect finishing touch.

Trusting the process
