Yeah, so. I guess I need to post pictures here, huh? Blogs are not so interesting without the visual stimulus. I understand HOW to post pictures. I just need to TAKE them. Then upload them to my computer. Then post them. Right? Right.

Goal. To have pictures posted next week.

I'm not gonna give up on you, little bloggy.

Okay, so spring turned into a ridiculous rain-fest last week.

And I turned into an overwhelmed, headachey, weepy, insomniac mess. Not so fun. I will spare my unseen readers all of the nitty-gritty details. For now, that is. No promises about what this blog will turn into.

BUT, I did manage to have a wonderful "getting things done" meeting with a friend, where we do all of those things that have been sitting on our to-do lists for, like, ever. And doing these things was actually kinda fun!

And, I've also been going back to yoga class and practicing regularly with a friend.

And my sweet husband helped me cook a yummy dish for a Passover seder. And people complimented me on it and asked for the recipe! (This, minus the farro). I am not a big cook-for-large-groups kinda gal, so this was no small feat.

Oh, and I was offered a job! Not sure if I'm going to accept the offer, but said job would complement my other part-time gig and help me achieve a big-ish career goal a bit sooner. And, to apply for said job, I had to ask for three letters of recommendation which was enough to send me into a bit of a what-if-I'm-not-good-enough-and-they-won't-have-anything-good-to-say-or-will-be-irritated-because-I-asked kind of frenzy.

All this is to say, I am practicing appreciating myself for all of those little (but really kinda BIG) things that I normally just feel like I should be doing or shouldn't have a hard time doing. A little bit of kindness can go a long way. Wait, wasn't that my spring intention?

welcome, Spring

Spring has sprung here in my neck of the woods, and I am so enjoying the longer days. My mood seems to shift around the Spring Equinox every year. It's such a relief to come out the dark months and into SPRING, glorious SPRING. I have more energy for action and connection.

That being said, I am also processing some pretty major stuff in my life. But somehow the sunshine and warm make it a little more manageable. Stuff is moving, for sure.

This equinox, I planted the seed of being super, duper kind to myself. I've been riding some pretty kick-ass emotional waves lately. Remembering that however my process unfolds, it is really, truly, deeply okay. Perfect.

Here's to growth!

So, here we go...

I've been jones-ing to start a blog for a while now. To share myself, to connect, to be brave in the face of fear.

This is it!
