Hi love! I’m so unbelievably amazingly grateful for so many things right now. Just a week ago, I was camping with my husband. We spent a week outdoors in places like Mt. Shasta, Crater Lake (pictured below) and then went up to Mt. Hood to watch the eclipse. It was one of my favorite vacations of all time and I am filled with so much love and joy.

0 comments

This past weekend, I was deep in retreat leading 22 women in The SoulShine Sisterhood. I turn my phone off during these types of events and don’t look at news or email while I’m there. When I came home Sunday night and read about the racism and hatred that led to violence and death in Charlottesville this weekend, my mind got angry and my heart got broken.

 IT’S TIME. It is time I claim my brilliance. To own my power, my sexuality, my beauty, my boldness. To no longer shrink to play the part,  or to hide behind someone else’s life. It’s time I claim my brilliance. To own my voice, my opinions, my thoughts, my Truth. To no longer dim my Essence to fit in, or to ignore my feelings to belong. It is time Iread more

Let me give you some background on today’s blog: I had an eating disorder for many years in my 20s. It was bad and lasted about 5 years until I started the deep inner work of healing what got me there in the first place. I don’t talk about that part of my life a lot because it’s not directly related to the work I do, but this food thing is a problemread more

When I began my true journey of self-discovery, I felt really alone. I’d spent most of my life being the strong one, the one who had it all together, the one who looked pretty solid on the outside.   But the truth was that I wasn’t what I appeared to be. Underneath the badass, organized, type A, over-achiever…I was longing for something more. I wasn’t being true to myself. I was on a hamsterread more

The real reason I share my personal life


0 comments

If you’ve been a part of this community for a while, you know that I often share the real, raw and vulnerable Truth about my life. Last week was no exception when I shared some super personal news about my miscarriage. The fact that I share so much may seem totally weird to some people.  It may seem totally normal to others. You may wonder how I draw the line between running myread more

They say all feelings have a beginning, a middle, and an end.   The truth is that I’m still in the middle part, but I felt like it was time to share this story with you – not just for me, but for all women who have faced this and for all women who have made a plan and then watched as the plan changed. Two weeks ago today, Iread more

I just arrived in Louisiana to visit my family for the week and I’m so excited for long sleeps, movies with my dad, and dinners with my mom and sister.

It’s the start of the new year and I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, so I wrote you a letter that’s a little more personal and vulnerable than usual. So, snuggle up + hang with me for a little. From the time I was a little a little girl, I always felt different. I didn’t know what it was, but I could just feel it. I was the black sheep ofread more
