The work never stops. Not when you get engaged, and certainly not when you get married.
This year has challenged every single part of my life, my marriage included. H and I have had to try several new ways to facilitate more fluid communication. Not just try, but like TRY try. It’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it. To “celebrate,” we find ourselves doing something we did when we first started healing our once toxic relationship: 𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬.
If you want the deets about how we got through what we went through, go watch our YouTube video on my channel, but we’ve been through more than tumultuous times. Many of the memories we have while dating were sad/angry/frustrated/broken ones made in happy, beautiful places. When we would break up (yup...it happened way more than once), I thought of all the things we did together as a waste. (I know better now.) So when we got it together for the last time, we vowed to rewrite all the painful memories with better ones as a strong, committed couple.
We’re six years into this love thing and two years into this wedded union, and so far we’ve revisited more than half of the places we did while dating, and created new, happy memories there, some of them with our Ava Luna.
Is it silly? Maybe. But it works for us. 𝐃𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠? 𝗪𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬? 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐝𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩? 💘
Photo stories: We’re still rewriting memories in Miami. This week we redid our first date with coffee, gallery hopping, at @29rooms, and with some sushi. ❤️

Some of the burdens that weigh us down most are in our heads. These may be the negative things we’re telling ourselves, our interpretation of events that happened in the past, or something somebody once said to us. They do not have to define your present or your future. ⠀
Ask yourself: Is that old narrative really true? The answer is no. What's stopping you from letting go? You can move towards a new direction right now. Today, dare to let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life, the shift in perspective, the expansion that is coming through. Choose to nurture that part of you.⠀
What would make you free light and empowered – to lift off into the sky like a kite?⠀
Do you agree?

One day you’ll change your lifestyle.
One day after this project you’ll slow down.
One day when you’ve made more money you’ll start doing what you love.
One day you’ll leave that toxic relationship.
One day you’ll put yourself first.
One day you’ll be happy.
One day you’ll die.
Eventually (as our human form) we all end up the same way. Then no one gives a sh*t what car you had, how hot your body was, how many instagram followers you had, or how much cash was in your bank account (including you, because you’re dead). Although I guess you could try and impress others after you’re gone with a super bling grave 🤑🤷♀️. All that really matters is:
Did you truly experience and make the most of your life?
Did you live to your full potential?
Did you enjoy it?
Did you feel as good as you wanted to feel?
Did you feel happy and nourished in your soul?
Did you feel free?
Did you live as your true authentic self?
Did you make a positive difference to the lives of others?
Did you leave the earth better off for you being in it?
Did you give more than you took?
Did you create more than you consumed?
Did you leave behind a legacy to be proud of?
If your life were ending now, how many of these questions would you be saying yes to? Would you have any regrets?
Life is not a project with an end goal. Its an experience. So I guess the question is; what experience are you having and is it the one you want to be having?
Something to think about perhaps.
Much love 💚 (Picture of the graveyard taken from my 26th floor balcony when I visited Kuala Lumpur)

Holiday Overwhelm: its been real, its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun.
🎄 𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝗮 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗦𝗹𝗶𝗽
You don't have to go to every holiday party, family get-together, Friendsgiving, or insta-worthy event you get invited to. You are allowed to no go & you don't have to have (or give) a reason.
🎄 𝗦𝗮𝘆 𝗡𝗢
You don't want to make the Christmas ham for the entire family? Then don't. Your feet hurt & you don't feel like looking at Christmas lights for 100th time? Then don't. You are allowed to be happy & enjoy the holidays too.
🎄 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗗𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝗤𝘂𝗶𝗲𝘁 𝗧𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗮 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁𝘆
Read a book. Take a bath. Meditate. Go for a walk. This time of year can be so loud, happy & joyful, but loud. Give your mind the chance to calm down.
🎄 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗹𝗲 "𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲" 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸
You are doing everything for everyone & have forgetten to gift yourself, reward yourself, and acknowledge your hard work. What are you getting yourself for the holidays this year?
🎄 𝗘𝗺𝗯𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗜𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
This time of year can be so magical, but we get wrapped up in this picture-esque idea of the "perfect" holidays but what nobody ever tells us is, the magic is in the mess.
This year, give them the best of you & not what's left of you. 🎁

Gemini. The first air sign of the zodiac comes on the tails of the new form and manifestation of building energy introduced with Taurus. Gemini is very much tied to relationships between band balance of that which is brought to form. Particularly, when seemingly opposite. This is depicted in the symbol of Gemini, two pillars connected by a bridge across the top and bottom representing duality.
This balance is not a compromise between forces but a continuation of creation.
🌀 Ruled by Mercury, Gemini is deeply connected to communication, growth, and maturity through connectedness. 🌀In the corporal sense, Gemini is associated with the nervous system. The nervous system is the means by which the body communicates with Self and the environment. It is through the nervous system that we receive and respond to stimuli.
🌀Moon in Gemini transits are great for divine communication particularly if written. When we communicate in thought, writing, and often again in speech or thought in review.
This is a great phase to incorporate petitioning with Sacred Stationery.
There’s some truth to this. I think people often make their identity around their wounds/trauma, and that isn’t ... super great. Changing is really scary, but it’s so worth it to reclaim freedom from the past. Science and spirituality both point to the body/brain’s amazing capability to heal and to become new. Our bodies and brains have remarkable tenacity and capacity for finding the way back Home within if only you’re willing to listen... You are never, never stuck in the past—and while facing the pain is uncomfortable (understatement of the year), the joy and hope and love you can find afterwards to dream new dreams and find a whole new way of relating to the world is incredible... Take it from someone (me!) who knows firsthand how difficult and yet rewarding this process is. But it is NOT easy. Which is why it’s easier to stay in inherited narratives and patterns in the body/brain... This is why I’m on the path of being a therapist/healer. This is why since 2015 I dedicated myself to healing, using all methods I could find (counseling, yoga therapy, art, sound, movement, etc) ... Because people need to know that change is possible, no matter what you have been through...There is hope. You don’t have to feel the way you do currently forever. You are not destined to feel miserable or struggle with depression or want to kill yourself the rest of your life... Change can happen. And the biggest lie you can tell yourself is that you’re stuck.
Saturday, DECEMBER 14
The Sun, Venus, and Jupiter form a parallel aspect today and tomorrow, and we are especially charitable. We have a stronger desire than usual to find meaning in our relationships. There may be some overstating or overindulgence now, but our intentions are generally good, and we promptly offer people the benefit of the doubt. We’re also inclined to take the high road, open ourselves up to new possibilities, and keep growth and discovery as priorities. We need to allow our loved ones some freedom and space to grow and improve. We’re making the best out of situations now. We’re likely to experience a strong desire for harmony and comfort, and we can be moved to express our affection. At the same time, we are taking more pride in our relationships or diplomacy, and we may be putting more effort into these things now. We prefer to attract than pursue and to compromise than fight.
The Moon spends much of the day in the sign of protective Cancer, entering outgoing Leo at 10:56 PM EST.
The Moon is void from 10:57 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Venus), until the Moon enters Leo at 10:56 PM EST.

Sometimes we spend so many days waiting for the moment that we will do that thing, wear that clothes, talk to that person, go to that place & we not even know if we’ll want to do the same things when tomorrow comes.
It doesn’t mean you have to do everything in one day, okay? It means you don’t need to wait if you don’t want to, because the moment is now. It’s not in five minutes, five days, five months or five years. It’s now!
The right moment is when you decide it’s the right moment. If you decide that today you’ll wear that expensive makeup that you were waiting for some special day to use, so you will.
YOU are the boss here.
YOU decide what you want & what to do.
YOU know the right moment.
Stop waiting & start living. 🌸

🇫🇷Butternut et potimarron 🥕
Recette avec le @maho.nabe ( produit offert ), une cocotte japonaise. Un design magnifique mais c’est plus que ça, mis au centre de la table, il continue de chauffer et de conserver la chaleur après avoir été retiré des plaques de cuisson.
Pour réaliser ce velouté :
- 1 butternut
- 1/2 potimarron
- 1 carotte jaune
- 3 cuillères à soupe de crème liquide
- paprika, sel, poivre ( les quantités c’est selon vos préférences :) + ou - c’est vous qui choisissez ♡)
Faites revenir de l’ail et de l’huile d’olive dans le Maho Nabé.
Ajouter vos légumes coupés et de l’eau pour les recouvrir.
Laisser cuivre pendant 30mins à feux moyen. Remuer de temps à autre.
Une fois les légumes cuits, mixer les et voilà c’est prêt 😍
UN DÉLICE! Parfait pour ce temps 💛
🇺🇸Butternut soup 🥰🥰🥰
Favorite comfortfood of the season ♥️🙌🏻
