so in love

When we love, we always strive to become better than we are.  When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

let in the love

You are enough. Today, tomorrow, and every day thereafter. You are perfectly adequate, without needing to change a single thing about yourself. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t allowed to want to grow, evolve or improve. It doesn’t mean you don’t have flaws. It means you are worthy of love. It means that you deserve to love yourself in spite of your imperfections. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you have been through, you are deserving of love. Be kind to yourself. You are only human. Forgive and let live. Let in the love.

27 years, happiness and gratitude

On the eve of my birthday (the 4th of July!) we escaped the independence day crowds and madness in favor of peace and solitude at one of our favorite Marin hideaways, Ring Mountain.  It was one of those moments where I found myself beaming with happiness, gratitude and inspiration so I just had to share it with you all! Here’s a few pics that I snapped throughout the evening.  It was the perfect start to my 27th year!  And we’re already dreaming of many more Summer nights like this one!


The sun setting over our beautiful Mt. Tam…


And my favorite boys on their way to our private picnic spot…


And here, cuddled up with my love, feeling happy and free…

happy may!

Happy May! And Happy Birthday Ranger!! Our little pup turns 1 today (we think)! He’s a rescue so we picked May 1 based on what we knew / thought when we got him…plus it’s an easy one to remember. It’s hard to believe 9 months have flown by but thanks to Ranger, they have been filled with so much love, laughter and cuddle time! I could not be more grateful for having this little one in my life. And without even knowing it (well let’s face it, he probably does know it), he reminds me on a daily basis of so many important things:

To wake up and stretch
To enjoy every meal
To get outside and play
To live in the moment
To listen
To forgive
To love unconditionally

We celebrated with a perfect family beach day, followed by my homemade dog treats.

Here’s the birthday boy today.

And here he is tuckered out, taking a rest in the beach bungalow we crafted for him – such a cutie!

And because I just couldn’t resist, here’s the little one just a couple of days after we brought him home, 9 months ago – so precious!

earth love

Happy Earth Day!  Thank you beautiful earth for all that you do for us.  Along time ago, William Shakespeare wrote, “The earth has music for those who listen.”  Today, and always, listen.
