Im a blessed girl. I was born into a family that I love & have always felt a deep connection to. My aunts & uncles, my grandparents have offered me a love that I have never doubted. As I moved into the world as a young adult I was blessed with a compass that led me to my soul family. Maybe b/c my blood family loved me so deeply I learned to love my friends with that same depth. I am a transparent gal, and I have known from the moment I meet some one if we are “kin”. If so then I wrap my heart around them and hold tight for the ride – NO MATTER where that ride takes us. Even if there are moments when they are not present in my day to day life they are in my heart. Today is the birthday of one of those Soul Family Members – Gina Esteva. I KNOW I moved to the Mexican Jungle to find her. Her friendship guides me, honors me, teaches me, believes in me and never doubts me. I met her when my girls were babies & I was deathly ill. I shook her hand and knew I didn’t want to let go. She is 66 years old today and so brave, so very strong and I am beyond blown away to be her person, daughter, friend, sister and confident. Today Gina I wish for you to find freedom in your heart, to reincarnate & reinvent yourself as the woman you have always wanted to be. Happy Sweet Bday, I am so glad I found you.
Lola: today at school there was a super body pile up on the playground & I was on the bottom & my knee got twisted.
Mee: Oh no are u ok?
Lola: Well, my friend Amelia’s moms sister is a surgeon & so Amelia (7yrs old) is practicing to be a knew surgeon too and she said I need crutches. So can we go to the drug store to get them?
Mee: Oh no thats awful! Well, thank goodness for Amelia – but did she not tell you that first you need a 6 inch shot of cortisone in your knee?
Lola: Oh, well lets see how I feel tomorrow momma. My knee is much better now.
just made a crazy good sweet potato, carrot & green apple miso soup..Ahhh..this is how I settle in #cooking is my meditation.
I am home. In my own house. I’ve got plans for the next few weeks: Cooking for my family & Writing – gotta finish my final edits.
The past 10 weeks have been amazing & a big hustle that I am proud to have pulled off. I feel so thankful for my husband & sister who have helped me run my house & raise UP my girls while I traveled is a true blessing.
Nicole & Lee thank you.
Im so bundled up that when I got on the elevator I scared a little dog. I told the owner I understand, I can be a little over the top w/ my winter wear. #nyc #layers #winterBurka
