Creative Hotspots

by flowers on August 26, 2011 · 10 comments

Did you catch my post up at Steady Mom about important life/work/family boundaries? ************************************* Everyone has a hotspot. (And no I’m not talking about my new iphone that is an actual wifi hotspot and allows me to take my laptop to my creative hotspot. Different hotspot.) The hotspot I’m referring to is that certain mix [...]


A Million Moments

by flowers on April 7, 2011 · 7 comments

If I had a million (extra) hours I would write a million blog posts that tell you of all the wonderfulness, mixed with all the growing pains and eye opening epiphanies, heightened by the quantum leaps of moving in the direction of my life’s work and passions. But I only have this one quick moment [...]


We are infinitely moving and a shaking to arrange our lives to fit our bigger life visions. Sometimes, in order to move forward with specific goals or just our general life path we need to let go of something to make time for new opportunities. As you know I have a full plate right now: [...]


Tonight as I was making dinner Stone kept me company in the kitchen holding Ninu. He brought up our wedding day and as we each shared our favorite moments the memories cascaded out one after another. It felt really good. It brought me back to an entirely different place: one where our relationship was front [...]


Celebrating Small Victories

by flowers on August 16, 2010 · 12 comments

We have a tendency to focus on what didn’t get done during the day or our less than skillful parenting moments. Having a newborn has asked me to celebrate the smallest of parenting victories as I navigate my day. I celebrate keeping the kitchen cleaned up all day or staying one step ahead of the [...]


Self-Portrait :: Eyes

I am participating in Shakti Mama’s Portrait Project. This week our assignment was our eyes. Play along or just take a peek. *************** Joy This was one of the few photos I took a few hours after I learned the midwifery legislation I worked so hard on was signed into law. I was high on [...]


Photo Friday :: The Mask

by flowers on July 22, 2010 · 20 comments

I’m participating in Shakti Mama’s self-portrait series and our first assignment was to explore the mask. This could go a million ways. I’ll highlight some thoughts I’ve had through the process of choosing the mask, taking the picture, uploading and posting it. *I feel comfortable behind a mask. Life feels exciting and adventurous. I feel [...]


Rekindling my Affair with Books

by flowers on July 21, 2010 · 26 comments

There was a time when I was a voracious reader. In fact, that was how you could describe me most of my life until my second son was born. Then my world changed into reading magazines and blogs because they were something I could pick up quick, read an article or post, and then go [...]


35 Weeks .:. Intentions + Reflections

by flowers on May 10, 2010 · 10 comments

I have received an amazing amount of clarity in the past week. Letting go of my fears and expectations (and hang ups surrounding this birth) turned out to open an amazing new spectrum of experience. (Rootbeer floats have been my constant feel good companion this pregnancy and eight months later I’ve perfected the craft!) I [...]


Tears & Abundance

by flowers on April 30, 2010 · 24 comments

Tears & Abundance I’ve shed some major tears in the past 36 hours. I don’t tell you this for pity or condolences (it’s actually quite hard for me to admit), but rather for the sake of authenticity. I know I’m not alone in feeling overwhelmed by life in our fast-paced world, parenting in a new [...]
