30 Lessons I’ve Learned Before 30

It’s the time of year where hiatus, hibernation, and goal setting. While it is the start of the new year for everyone else, for myself it’s also marks the start of a new decade. My twenties were full. Full of cross-country moves, rebuilding of community, and choosing to find home whether with two 50 lb bags in tow or in apartments. Inspired by the work of Stefan Sagmeister, (you can check out his video here), today this post is a reflection on the past decade. It’s been wild and a crazy adventure beyond my furthest imagination.

Winter Kale Soup

There’s something about eating healthy, losing weight, and resolves coming right during the middle of winter. If most of us are honest we couldn’t be further from thinking about our beach body or getting up early to work out when it’s still dark. While we love salads with the best of them, there’s something about eating cold food during winter that loses its appeal. Smoothies when it’s 20 degrees outside is a hard sell. Maybe you’re like me and are thinking the same thing. In light of this, we came up with this delicious kale soup recipe. Warm, comforting, and with a few tweaks, it’s whole30 compliant. This soup can be dinner tonight.

Word of the Year 2018

Word of the Year: Abide

As I gaze into my Christmas tree, I know the holiday season will soon come to a close. I’ve returned back to my California home on Friday and the fresh beginning of a new year is upon us. Past the glitter, party horns, and popping of champagne, I love the idea of a fresh start. I’m obsessed with them. Whether you’re someone who loves making resolutions or someone who has resolved to no longer make resolutions, I love the hope and optimism, the dreaming of dreams that comes to the surface. Rather than being called a dreamer, everyone seems to allow vulnerability of heart and desire come to the surface.
