lizelayne I really think you should meet me here in June to claim and roadmap your One (bold) Move waiting inside you. There is magic in the air and I'll be here with my arms wide open. Five spots left. I'd love to see your face and walk beside you. #bepresentretreats 5h

lizelayne This moment was one of the beautiful ones yesterday. There were some really messy moments too. When the four year old and the thirty-eight year old struggled with kindness toward one another. But today is another day. And the Sun is shining and the beach is calling. But first: bacon. #theellieandmamaretreatadventure 13h

lizelayne Today is a day when I am in the thick of holding the beauty and joy and holy cats this is my life in one hand and the tough, hard, messy in the other. It is real. And it is mine. So I stand outside taking #fivedeepbreaths in the midst of it all to push myself to actually feel the joy while creating space for gentleness. #backtothebasicsoflove #becausethisisselfcare 3d
