3-22-17 Everyday Celebrations

What if you made every little thing you do a celebration? Every boring, menial task...make it a mini celebration,ย in some way. This applies especially to tasks that often feel hurried.

3-21-18 Chipping Away

Quick thought this morning about how slowly and quickly time passes. It often seems slow, so after we come home from the work day with an already tired mindset, we've given up for the day.

Morning Solitude

This morning I was able to meditate and drink some matcha green tea. Surrounded by simple beauty and the leftovers of my kids playing back here during the summer, I was compelled to take pictures.

The Importance of Beauty

I've forgotten about how truly important beauty is and what it means for my life. Of course, there are more urgent matters throughout the day, everyday.

Field Trip Work Day

Sometimes Carlos goes on field trips for work. Today was one of those days. I was able to work mostly on my phone this afternoon, so the baby and I got to go with him. What a beautiful drive it was to Malibu. We drove on PCH, and because it's still winter, the road was… Continue reading Field Trip Work Day
