It’s nice to see you.
I didn’t know you’d be here so soon, yet here we are.
The clock struck midnight, I watched confetti fly on the screen, but nothing in me changed.
It’s a new year, but the same me.
Yet, when I look back on all the memories from 2021, I can see how much has changed. How much has evolved within me and around me. How much more gentle and compassionate I have been with myself. How much my connections have deepened. It has not been easy, but it has been profound.
While I am the same, I have grown so much.
This is my reflection on al I have moved through in 2021.
Here, I send off 2021 with a deep, heartfelt Thank You.More

For my birthday, Justin surprised me with a weekend getaway to Portland, Maine! Being that we are both foodies and enjoy craft drinks (coffee, beer, cocktails, all the things lol), this was the perfect trip for us! While we could get to Portland in a day from Boston, we wanted to get away from the city for a few days. With only two days in Portland, we experienced some of the best food and drinks, plus got a little touch of nature.
Whether we return for another weekend getaway or just a day trip (to get a beer at Allagash), I know it won’t be long before we return to Portland, Maine!
If you’ve ever considered traveling to Portland but haven’t yet, here are SEVEN reasons to prep your belly and mind for the awesomeness that is Portland.More

My family’s visit to Acadia National Park in Maine was one with heartfelt purpose! My youngest brother, Kenneth, FINISHED the Appalachian Trail and our goal was to meet him at the end. Having walked roughly 2,190 miles from Georgia to Maine, we wanted to be there to celebrate the achievement of his goal. I’m so grateful we got to share these memories together.
Personally, this trip was not all I would have imagined for spending a weekend at Acadia National Park. Just two weeks before this trip, I injured my back at work. Thus, I was not able to participate in any hiking activities. I am grateful to have been able to fly on Cape Air from Boston to Bar Harbor, as there’s no way I would have been able to drive 200 miles from Boston to Acadia National Park.
If you are looking for a quick weekend getaway, this is your accessible guide to seeing all of Acadia National Park in TWO days!More

Happy Halloween, friends!! October is one of my favorite times of the year (pretty even with Christmas time) and I love embracing the spooooooky. Here are some self care practices to get in alignment with the elements and yourself.
Today is a waning crescent moon, which is a perfect time for resting and resetting before the new moon where we can set new intentions. It’s also a perfect day for getting scared and looking at the things that scare us in life. Facing them with courage, as we reflect on this last phase.
I’ll be doing tarot card readings, journaling, and watching Haunting of Bly Manor most of today. How will you be celebrating Halloween and offering yourself some nurturing? Let me know below!More
