Alt Summit was a blast! Getting ready for a conference when the house is freaking out – electricity problems are no joke – and recovering from the flu-lite meant no weekly links.


But I am back! And ready with lots of goodies to share now and again on Sunday as scheduled.


Each week in 2018 I’ll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because they are all about Self-Care and Life Satisfaction.



Inspired by so much beauty these days. One of my life hacks is to spend my lunch time reading design books (and by reading I mean looking at the pictures and day dreaming). Our physical environments play a big part in our well being, so investing time in making spaces beautiful and aesthetically pleasing is definitely guilt-free self-care.


Some of the spaces and design-y things I have been inspired by lately are:


SG Style, small space living/big bold style – Sacramento based small house designer Shavonda Gardener has a big message about representation and diversifying our input on social media.  If you haven’t met this delightful human yet – be sure to check out her epic Instatories + her Creative Mornings talk on Curiosity.


Small space decorating has a special place in my heart. I swoon every time Sacramento based Katrina Blair posts because her spaces are absolutely gorgeous.


Alt Summit introduced me to so many delightful people who are doing beautiful things in the world. Joanna Hawley of Jojotastic has an entire series on small spaces and has spent the last two years making her tiny bungalow in Seattle gorgeous.


Orzo with Butternut Squash and Spinach – so easy, so delicious and 7 year old approved. Vegan and vegetarian – friendly.



The Joy and the Gift – Brene Brown and DeRay McKesson talk race, shame, guilt and self-care.


 Why Hire a Life Coach? – Are you ready? Let’s talk!



Cyndie Spiegel is one of my favorite humans. She is a truth-teller, mama bear, and a woman with a mission to empower 100,000 women to build bold businesses before 2020.


Cyndie creates places where real conversations happen.


Are you wanting more places where you have real conversations about real issues? I am a proud member of The Community (of Us) and I’m inviting you to join us.


I’d love to know what you are reading,  watching and listening to these days. Tell me all about it!


I look forward to seeing you soon!
