Sunday’s with Millie.
And also I took a bath. So, #selfcaresunday crushin’ it? Boys should nap for at least 8 more minutes, so imma start working on my 4th annual if I had a Christmas wish list for the blog I have abandoned. (And deeply miss.) Also, we are officially into the New Moon in Scorpio. Witch, if you wanna know the most important thing, this moon is seducing. Meaning yes, it’s a good time to want and make the boom boom. You’re welcome. It’s also just a really good time to grab hold of that wicked passion you feel gravitating towards something, even if you’re unsure, jump. #namafuckingste
A few of my favorite new better for you things: @facestockholm lipsticks and multi-use wheel. Really good pigments for a naturalish higher standard brand. 🙌🏻Fact: I like pink lips during the holidays. Also, these functional adaptogenic filled chocolates with NO sugar from @addictivewellness are everythinggg.

Happy Birthday to one of the most brutally honest, loving and hilarious women I ever did know. @styled_disturbed you make me laugh, you keep us all on our toes for the better and your heart is unrivaled. Thank you for being such a good gal in the lady gang. Would be lost in this motherhood without you. xo

.
- 1/2 cup gluten free oats
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal - 1/2 cup nut butter of choice (we are a peanut butter family)
- 2 tbsp ghee
- 1/4 cup of honey (or more, I don’t like things uber sweet)

- 1/2 cup super dark low sugar chocolate chips
- Combine well, roll into one inch balls and put in the fridge for an hour, voila
Two days ago I experienced what can best be described as a possible short-lived nervous breakdown. It was all too much. The babes. The work. The babes being sick and needing me and me needing to work. The husband traveling and working and working. Me coming home from a work trip so the babes being confused as to who would be staying there with them forever and not abandoning them. The not communicating well. .
I yelled at my son after our 5th timeout and him shoving his brother to the floor, I stopped I walked away for a second, turned on some music for us all and returned to our normal lives. .
Swimming in “too much”, overwhelmed, overstimulated, dying for my husband to walk in the door. And when he did, the boys followed him around the house and my body uncontrollably just sat down in the corner of the kitchen. Every part of my body and psyche fought the tears. So I sat angry and confused and sad. My boys found me with tears welling up and they just sat with me with concern on their face. I still couldn’t move, they overwhelmed me 4 minutes ago and i then needed them to just sit and be still with me. Insane symbiotic relationship we share.
.
My husband eventually found us and picked us up off the floor, with much confusion and concern on his face ... and mind I’m sure.
.
He is a great partner, and at times i just cannot access the part of my brain that effectively communicates what i really need from him or the boys. I hate feeling helpless and that i possibly failed at something, and i just sit and process and sit and stare. Eventually i snap out of it and can learn from what just happened in my day, which was really effected by my long week, which was effected by the life we live and the reality of having two small energy-sucking humans with two full time working parents. .
And it doesn’t even matter that we both work, being a parent is hard. Being a partner and a parent is hard. Being just a partner is hard. Marriage ain’t easy. Adulting ain’t easy. -- cont. in comments --

My mother in law gave me this little beauty years and years ago. Every time I find her the last place I stashed her I always smile and relax a little. She finally found a home in my little sacred corner of the world and she sure does the space justice. Just a reminder, you don’t need magic to make magic happen. But, she really is magical.

The practice of patience was not a gift I was bestowed with. For a good couple months now I have paused my normal movement pattern, slowed down and gave my body a break. In the process I stayed pretty in tune with my normal hippie shit diet, splurging here and there with zero fucks given and have felt overwhelmingly free in a sense. But then I catch a glimpse of my softening in the mirror and I am cut to my emotional knees. .
I don’t believe this has to do with society or its pressure on me, it’s 100% my own shit. My ego is wrapped in feeling and looking good in my skin. And to be honest, having committed myself to this lifestyle of “being fit” and whatever that means has made me happier than I could have imagined in my pre-witchy-whitney days. That girl was always tired and numb to the world. So, no I don’t wanna go back. I absolutely want to continue to find kindness for myself, but even softening on the fact that my ego keeps me in a happier place seems to be fine, too.
.
Not sure that makes sense, but essentially what I am saying is where I am now is not where I want to be and THAT it’s okay for wanting more for myself. I 100% needed to slow down, redirect my energy and restore, but the idea of rebuilding is exciting and also annoying to me that I have to do it again.
.
My plan: Simple but not easy workouts, yoga and some running. Continue to eat with my heart and being free of the “cant have that game”, it’s too exhausting and sends me into the land of the overeating. And a little more acknowledgement for my need of stronger gratitude every single day.
.
That’s it y’all, happy Sunday from this little puffy feeling Mama ecstatic to be home with her babes and onto a season of habits and presence. Anddd wanting to get back with to feeling as alive as I did this summer, like in this photo, from 3 months ago. .

Full Moon in Taurus tonight at 9:23pm PST
.
Think About: There is no question that it’s been a bit of an odd summer and fall thus far. The eclipse, the fires, the earth quakes, the anger, the moods and the things we cannot explain more than we feel. According to the hippie witches of the deep web, Taurus medicine is slow. Steady. Solid. Stubborn. Taurus knows how to be an anchor. This can exhaust and be the greatest strength of those of us who are born in the sign of Taurus(this girl 🙌🏻), and in this moon phase it’s a time to anchor down. All of the uneasy you have felt in the weeks leading up to now should slowly start to ground you. Uneasiness makes room for wonder, the ground you stand on makes room for change. If nothing else, just think of the summer behind you and find a small piece of gratitude for what was and can be. I for one am thankful for this next season as the summer and spring brought a lot of challenge, uneasiness and I am so grateful for the shift my love and I have started to ground ourself in. We are not there yet, but taking a moment to look back on moments that were not easy, but brought about our deepest strength and playfulness to continue to wander this crazy life together. May we all have the tough times that help us discover our deepest creativity and reconnect us to gratitude. Take a minute tonight.
.
Do: Go outside, look up, take a breath.
.
Go deeper: Make full moon tea. .
First part you will need: .
Mason Jar
Water
Full Moon .
Fill up the mason jar with water and lid it. Put out under a full moon to soak up all that energy, or place it by a window that will soak up the moonlight. Bring back inside tomorrow.

Second part:
Tea of choice
Mug of choice
Spoon
Honey
.
Use your Moon Water and make tea with it! After you’ve heated and steeped the tea, add your honey, honey. (If you don’t care for sweet tea then just a pinch for affect will suffice)
.
Now stir. Stir for a good minute, slowly. While stirring, hum. Doesn’t matter if you can carry a tune or not. Just get lost in the vibrations of your voice and the swirling of the Moon Water Tea. (I know it’s hippie shit).
.
Sip, sip. Reflect.
Fatty, collagen-y, fiber-y, oat-y energy balls. As promised le recita:
- 1/2 cup gluten free oats (could do all coconut or up the flaxseed to reduce oats)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal - 1/2 cup nut butter of choice (we are a peanut butter family andddd I’ve also swapped this out for GHEE 🔮)
- 1 scoop @vitalproteins plain collagen (blue tub)
- 1/4 cup of honey (or more, I don’t like things uber sweet)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Combine well, roll into one inch balls and put in the fridge for an hour, voila

Literally after dreaming of visiting this place for four years, finally made it after a 3 hour flight and 30 minute bike ride. Thank you for the delightful adaptogenic fatty goodness. You did not disappoint @picnikaustin, xo.

Samhain.
What a beautiful thing to celebrate and speak to those you love so deeply but no longer share the earth with you. To take a few moments to tell them about your life and how different it is without them in it. To remember. To appreciate the time you had. To love. To miss. To know what they’d probably say to you about “your problems”. That is magic.

Fact: I believe pasture raised eggs are literally the perfect food, and actually better for you than a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin. Pasture raised eggs are a nutritional powerhouse for the very important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K2. AND They're also a great source of omega-3 fats. They contain many B vitamins, B1, B2, B6, B12, and Biotin. .
Anytime a mama is preggo or wants to be and asks me what to eat, pasture raised eggs with bright orange yolks cooked in GHEE are on the top of my list. Second, I would add beets and kraut, so my beetnik kraut from @happypantry is the absolute best and biggest bang for your nutrient buck.
.
Nope I am not preggo, nor do I want to be. But, I find when I am eating a really good source of eggs, cooked in ghee with greens on the regular, I am my happiest, healthiest self. .
Eat YO Eggs. .
**Nerdy Specs from WAPF**
.
"Egg yolks are the richest source of two superstar carotenoids—lutein and zeaxanthin. Not only are bright yellow yolks loaded with these fat-soluble antioxidant nutrients, they are more bioavailable than those found in vegetables, corn and most supplements. While these nutrients have a reputation of combating macular degeneration, and cataracts and supporting overall healthy vision, they have a long list of other benefits, including protecting the skin from sun damage and even reducing one’s risk of colon8and breast cancer.
.
Besides providing all eight essential proteinbuilding amino acids, a large whole, fresh egg offers about six to seven grams of protein and five grams of fat (with about 1.5 grams of it saturated), which comes in handy to help in the absorption of all the egg’s fat-soluble vitamins. One egg also serves up around 200 milligrams of brain-loving cholesterol and contains the valuable vitamins A, K, E, D, B-complex and minerals iron, phosphorus, potassium and calcium. Choline, another egg-nutrient, is a fatty substance found in every living cell and is a major component of our brain. Additionally, choline helps break up cholesterol deposits by preventing fat and cholesterol from sticking to the arteries."
Rawr. My how these years fly. We wonder how many more years we can get away with road sodas and hitting up one block of houses. Oh, and consider this our Xmas card, so happy holidays to you and yours’.

:: full video link is in my bio :: This is the story of two soulful gypsies who found their way to each other, and started a life a finding wonder, together.
Jason asked their families to gather at Mt. Helix pretending to take holiday photos, but really so they could be a part of their proposal.
Little did they know, they were about to be a part of a magical ceremony between our gypsies.
They enrolled the help of a few friends and started a new chapter in witness of their dearest loved ones.

Quick, whimsical and telling of their journey together.
Congratulations @bamberg19 and Jason, may you always remember the magic you two create for and of one another as embodied in this day. https://vimeo.com/240374786 *Music curated by Jason Knight **Shot on my iPhone 6s

When you don’t wanna workout but you throw on your fanny pack and do it anyways. Nailed it. Fact. Fanny packs make most experiences better.

All of the good times, let em stroll. This kid, sure wants to make life equally better and more challenging. I told my friend today, you really gotta pick your battles and let the kids be kids. I have none of this figured out, but each day we find the joy, I think we win the day. Two timeouts and countless threats later, we snuggle and life is found.
