October To-Do List + the winner is…

October 03, 2016


Dear Friends,

Happy October! I can’t thank you all enough for such an awesome response to my #100 Day Project Exhibit! The online connections and heartfelt emails this week have really meant the world to me! I hope my daily posts weren’t too much :)…but truly provided a little glimpse into the making of my #100 pieces and just how fun and intense those days were!


My favorite time of the year has arrived and I LOVE it! 

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but the days here have definitely gotten a little shorter and a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change colors and sprinkle themselves like confetti along the sidewalks.


Between a busy summer and a hectic September, I am looking forward to a quieter October. My to do list is pretty simple, I’m looking forward reflecting on the past few months and tallying  up my blessings—because I know the list is long! I’m definitely looking forward to more walks with my hubby so that we can drink in the crisp fall air (now that the summer time, “melt you in less than 5 minutes” humidity is over here in Northern Virginia). And more than anything, I’m looking forward to enjoying my daily happy hour (my meditation & yoga practice) with a little less rush hour traffic going on in my mind :).


And, oh I can’t forget to add, one of these weekends, I’m looking forward to a cool rainy day, where I can linger a little longer in bed, snuggled under the covers.


What about you?

I’d love to hear what your favorite part of fall is, what you’re looking forward to and why, so leave a comment below!

And last, but not least, thank you to all of you that entered to win the grand prize raffle for the week,  the original to Buddha Peace!  Now, without further ado…..(drum roll, please)….


And the winner is…

Planting our future meals

April 26, 2017

 Envisioning our feasts I love this time of year; when all the envisioning we did in the winter, of the goodness we want to feast on during the summer months, goes into motion :). For the past few years, at the beginning of spring, the hubs and I have been starting our own seeds for […]

Using Nature’s Bounty for spring remedies It’s starting to feel like spring….the grass is turning green, the flowers are blossoming, the bird’s are chirping….and I’ve started sneezing :).
