It’s just for you

I firmly believe there is a space within all of us that’s just for us.

I believe we’re all vessels waiting to be filled. Filled with love, with patience, life, with creation and with passion. But for the first time in a long time, or maybe ever, I’m realizing that what I’m filled with doesn’t always need to be shared.

You know I’m a talker, I’m also a writer but in my personal relationships, I am most definitely a talker. I find it therapeutic and cathartic. I find talking through things in order to move through them really helpful. But what about in those moments where your dreams and your creativity aren’t met in the same way when you share them.

Reconnecting to the earth

When I walked in I was in pain. I was tight and I was holding tension. I wasn’t in tune with what was happening in the bottom half of my body.

My cycle came yesterday. How fitting, one of the bigger days I’ve been anticipating and holding on for – her two year birthday.

I’ve been sitting with this idea that it should somehow be perfectly, exactly, wonderfully 28 days long. I have been holding on to that thought for a long time. The reality that it might be 50 to 60 days just doesn’t always seem like something I can sink myself into. I’ve been trying for so long to morph my body into this perfect mold of what a cycle should look like and feel like.

GOOD THINGS

About week ago I was waking up to cook – a lot.

Wild Nettle and Blue Cheese Toasts, Spice Roasted Chickpeas, Spring Cous Cous Cups, Herby Potato Salad, Spring Diced Radish Salad, Roasted Salmon, Wild Nettle Pesto, Sweet Cashew Cream Jars and a big juicy cake slathered with chamomile infused whip cream sprinkled with bee pollen.

It was a feast and one I am proud to say I had a hand in cooking. Along with my daughter, my husband, one of my best friends and one of my newest friends.

I’m not a great cook and I actually am pretty terrible at following recipes, somehow I always manage to eye ball something and then there will be like 1/3 of a cup of flour left so I’ll just toss it in,
