For all of my nature-loving, fairy-worshipping, earthly Virgo ways, I actually have a terribly un-green thumb. The opposite of green on the color wheel is red, so let us say that I have a red thumb. Any form of gardening stirs my anxiety, and I honor and respect anyone who is able to plant seeds, … Continue reading GET YOURSELF A POTHOS PLANT
I hate to say this. Because I hate when people say this, and now I’m going to say it. But I wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true. I have been SO busy lately. See, doesn’t that sound obnoxious and self-important? I don’t know, I have always had a resistance to “busy” energy and people … Continue reading DAY OF REST
I’m kind of a vampire. People who know me are always a bit surprised to learn that I actually hate Summer—I’ve been described as bubbly, quirky, goofy, etc. and I suppose my personality doesn’t exactly jive with hating Summer. To an extent, I even kind of hate Spring as well. I know it sounds awful, … Continue reading CHANGE OF SEASONS
I have always been a back-stage, behind-the-scenes, supportive role kind of a person. People who know me very well, or even those who know me only superficially, might be a bit surprised by this, because I have a fairly extroverted, bubbly—one might even say bold—personality. But this goddess is the definition of multi-faceted. mul·ti·fac·et·ed /məltēˈfasədəd,ˌməltīˈfasədəd/ … Continue reading HOT AIR BALLOONING ON THE EDGE, PART II: THE FLIGHT
This post is coming a bit after the fact, but I felt inspired to expand upon my short-lived but unforgettable experiences with hot air ballooning. I dabbled in this adventurous recreational activity several years ago, and I am so grateful that I did. But, I will most likely never do it again. Hot air ballooning … Continue reading HOT AIR BALLOONING ON THE EDGE, PART I: THE CHASE
I returned home from Detroit last week, after sharing a beautiful visit with my friend, shimmering with inspiration from two very basic-sounding, but nonetheless, deeply profound entities—FOOD and THE HOUSE. I understand that when most people travel to visit a new place for the first time, the place itself, the geographic location, the town, is … Continue reading DETROIT INSPIRED, PART II: THE HOUSE
I just returned from Detroit. I don’t travel very often (this goddess’s budget doesn’t always allow for it), but I try to take one meaningful trip per year. This year, the meaning behind this voyage was to visit my friend who has recently relocated there. We met and became friends in PA, and have been … Continue reading DETROIT INSPIRED, PART I: THE FOOD
I know this sounds like kind of a silly topic. Like, how hard can it be to go grocery shopping? We’ve been doing it for most of our adult lives and should have it figured out by now. But, I actually believe many of us are rather tortured by grocery shopping and don’t even know … Continue reading THE LOST (OR NEWLY FOUND) ART OF GROCERY SHOPPING
Anyone who has been to my apartment knows that my dwelling is very humble in terms of space. I live in a “junior” studio, so this is basically like a studio but even smaller, in an apartment complex in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I love where I live. It suits me perfectly. I have nice … Continue reading ART ON YOUR WALLS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?
I was first introduced to Palo Santo by my good friend Erin Swavely. Erin is a gifted medium and offers her services to those in her community and beyond. If you’re interested in and open to this kind of healing, I recommend you reach out to her, she’s the real deal! Erin and my twin … Continue reading PALO SANTO. EVERYONE NEEDS IT.
