Prompt: If I were practicing deep self love, I would start....and I would stop.... I want to start by saying, I truly believe self-love is the beginning of all happiness. Why we don't teach our children this in elementary school, is beyond me. I'm not perfect, but I have a lot of self-care already build … Continue reading Write It Out Challenge Day #4
I don't know about you, but I have been pinching pennies to make this holiday meaningful. I'm making most of our gifts this year, but still trying to make them fun and festive. I've actually been bringing my lunch to work to make up for the extra spending. We all sacrifice a little this time … Continue reading Day #17, A Gift for You
Good morning, lovely people! It's Saturday, a sleepy, cold Saturday, and a perfect day to look for the light in our lives. On Christmas Eve each year, my mother gathered us around the tree after dinner. The few presents that preceded Santa were wrapped with precision, and adorned in pretty bows. Three identical packages always … Continue reading Day #9, Traditions
I've been thinking about and practicing stillness this month, attempting to manifest the physical sensations of the emotional state I currently find myself in. For the last two and a half years since I graduated college, our world has been in constant flux. We moved to Atlanta, we traveled to New England and North Carolina … Continue reading Stillness & Gratitude.

Writing and journaling has been an outlet for self-expression and documenting milestones for a long time. I bet most of your grandmothers, and even … Continue reading The Power of Your Pen
Even on a journey that seems crystal clear, we can easily become derailed. The last 4 months have been one of the longest stints of emotional clarity I've had in a long time. My purpose and focus, my motivation and rhythm, have been clear and attainable. Yoga has been a guiding light during this process, … Continue reading Darkness Settles
By E.Louise When waking up is success enough, When my make up is the mask I show the world, Because my own face isn’t strong enough to bare the scrutiny, Because falling down and getting back up can hurt even the tough. But when you stand beside me I feel softer than snow. My strength you … Continue reading Sunday Afternoon.
After I post on my blog, or upload something new to Instagram, I always click through the posts with the same hashtags I used. At first, I think I did this to get more attention on social media. Now, I do it for inspiration. To see what other creative spirits are putting out into the … Continue reading Full of Life
Last night, I went on the best first date I've been on in years...except it was with 29 other women, no men, and instead of dinner and movie, we made succulent terrariums at an all natural beauty and skin-care shop in Lawrenceville. I know, best date ever. I was supposed to meet Aaron's sister there, … Continue reading Flying Solo
