Coffee with a side of brainstorming is on the agenda this morning. How's it going over there?

Because I keep thinking of these moments and decided to pull out the album. 1. A favorite moment when we presented the bouquet to the couple present who had been married the longest. And that couple was my grandparents. They cried and it was one of the best moments of my life because I think they got how much I loved them. 2. The chapel at Culver is gorgeous. 3. Proof I had at least one bite of cake. 4. This moment and all that is to come.

The Seeking Stillness Altar Locket is back in the @soulmantras shop! I like to think of this locket like a wearable altar because I've tucked in nine quartz gemstones and one larger amethyst crystal for you to carry with you each day. Find it in the Intentions Jewelry Collection.

15 years with this guy. Thinking about the way we both smiled so big after the ceremony got going. How good it felt that day to know we were going to get past all the planning and the worries that come with all the planning and move on to the living part. Also, thinking about how I did not get enough of my own wedding cake. I still miss that cake.

Love how @tarawhitney captured the way he makes me laugh.

This spot in my kitchen island is my current favorite spot in the house. Like a deep breath.

There is a new pewter + silver collection, new Soul Mantra designs and phrases, and a new Let Liz Choose for you section that invites you to share a few words and trust me to choose a Mantra, create an intention necklace, and other good things just for you!

I'm so grateful to @evanleahquinn who created this beautiful site and made it so much easier to navigate and shop by intention.

All orders placed through Friday will receive a free gemstone chosen just for you and a few other goodies to celebrate.

Thank you so much for your continued support. I'm deeply feeling gratitude for the connections and love this journey gives me.

This is a crazy awesome hard beautiful intense week of work for my little, growing business. So I'm just gonna put this Palm Springs palm tree right here and pretend I'm sitting under it for a minute or two.

Join me?

Today, I took some photos of journal pages I'll be sharing in Tell It: Collage. (It's so hard not sharing them all with you!) I'm so excited to share the prompts and to see what the participants create. We start tomorrow and registration will be open through Wednesday! The night before a course begins is always full of such juicy anticipation. Link in profile to come along.

Drawing this card was like a deep breath. The reminder that the sun going down so early, the multiplying to-do list, even the wind storm tonight is part of the natural cycles of life. Recognizing that tethers me to what I know. (Yes.)

"The open-hearted truth telling that will change everything."

It's possible that in the last couple of weeks some of my journaling has taken on a bit of an edge. Specifically, adding in more pages that speak to the warrior in me. Another way of working out the tumbling feelings. Can't wait to share more in Tell It: Collage. We start tomorrow!!

While I was driving home after dropping EJ off, the DJ said we're supposed to have a crazy, rainy windstorm today. So I captured this to remind me that today started with this blue, with this breath, right here.

If we lived closer to Orlando, EJ and I would probably visit the Norway pavilion at Epcot weekly just for the baked goods. (When you go, be sure to try Anna's birthday cupcake. It is even better than it looks.)

That grey Pacific Northwest morning light.
.
Each day we have a choice to mend or stay stuck. Making repairs is what @pixielighthorse calls it. I often think of the way living with my heart open stitches the cracks in my heart that living creates. I also think about how the cracks let in the light. Both of these images sing to me as I mend, one step one breath at a time, every day.

That time I met Joy and Sadness and felt like I'd met my new best friends.
.
Also, I'm not kidding, I was so deeply moved by meeting them. Inside Out is such an important movie and helps us feel less alone in this crazy, complicated, beautiful world.
.
Also, that moment when I said to Sadness, "We totally get each other." And she nodded with that look on her face. Well, I hope I never forget it because it was this larger than life example of letting someone into your truth. Even if that someone is a large blue Pixar character.
.
We need symbols and stories that become companions as we move through each day. Taking time to acknowledge and gather these companions becomes an act of deep self-care. Letting go of what others tell us they're supposed to look like is a gift we give ourselves, too.
.
Also, if I ever meet Bing Bong, oh my goodness, I'll probably just burst into tears of joy.

We're deciding on all the tiny details of the new Soul Mantras site, and I'm so glad I have these photos of me "in the wild" creating in my studio that @stacygendreau took. It feels incredible to have someone capture photos that tell the story of how I feel when I'm creating and designing and catching the stories shared by the sweet souls I connect with through my shop and work.
.
Also, a few years ago I would have cropped this photo so you couldn't see the size of my arm. Well, some days I still do that. But today, I look at this photo and think about all that these arms do each day, all they've done and held and made over these last 41 years. And my heart grows a bit with gratitude.

The truth is that my smile is so big and such a defining part of me that when I'm not smiling, I look so damn serious. And the truth is that life is often serious. Serious is one of my superpowers.
.
I actually feel so much better than I did this morning, but the eyes tell their own story of the stacked up stuff. I see a fierceness there. A determination. A firm belief of knowing.
.
Sometimes there isn't a big crisis that brings on the days that are weighted down. There is just the tough stuff of living. The many things the mind and heart must keep track of, the many roles we slide in and out of, the decisions and the everyday routine and the unexpected that swirl together.
.
I'm using my oils and wearing my favorite mala around my neck and getting to work and eating cinnamon toast with peanut butter and pushing myself to see the ways I am deeply supported.
.
Yes.
.
Also, thank you for you. For being in this stuff of life together.
