and I’m so happy you’re here.
My life and work are inspired by a simple philosophy: you are already h(om)e.

Spring Mood Board
Thank God it’s spring. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and I’m fully vaccinated. I can’t help but nurture a sense of hope. This hope feels simultaneously audacious and justified. I have moments of genuine lightness despite feeling the usual current of anxiety and overwhelm. Some days are harder than others, but I’m finding it easier to return to a place of steadiness within myself.

Lately I’ve felt a pull to return to my yoga philosophy studies. There’s something about looking at life through a philosophical lens that makes me see myself more objectively. The truth is, I’ve been spending way too much time up in my head. I’m trying to work through uncertainty by over-thinking. It’s not going well. Let’s face it: life in general, but especially these days, is nothing if not unpredictable. We’re all trying to navigate the unknown as we face re-entry into a post-vaccinated world. There’s a lot to process and consider, and it raises some big questions about how we will redefine our lives. Ultimately, the only way to chart a course in a constantly shifting landscape is by grounding ourselves in a clear purpose. Yoga philosophy has a lot to teach us about how to find steadiness in an ever-changing reality, and I have found it strangely calming to work through my doubt and anxiety by asking bigger questions.

Go Your Own Way
I have always resisted being defined as one thing. I am many different things. My creativity doesn’t fit into a box. When I was young, I felt this intuitively and struggled with the expectation to choose a lane. I internalized a lot of these pressures and assumed that growing up meant growing into what I was supposed to be.

Lemon Thyme Tart
It’s so strange to observe how I’m marking time during this pandemic. I’m so much more aware of how the presence or absence of ritual defines my life. Case in point: This is the first recipe I’ve developed in over a year. That seems crazy to me, but the truth is I just haven’t had the time/will/energy/bandwidth to play in the kitchen.

End of Winter Mood
The sun is out today and it feels like a really big deal. Spring is coming. That’s what I’m holding out for in the midst of this bleak winter. I don’t know about you, but I’ve hit a wall. It’s a lot, friends. Sometimes I wonder how on earth we’re supposed to sustain this level of intensity, and then I remind myself that none of this is normal. It’s my mantra on repeat: This is not normal. This is not normal. It validates my experience and also makes me feel overwhelmed.

Early Fall Mood Board
This summer I became a summer person. I’ve always thought of myself as a fall person, but 2020 has turned everything upside-down, and I’m no longer who I was before. Hell, I’m not even who I was last week, which was technically a lifetime ago. Now I’m a summer person.
