We met so many beautiful people on our trip to Morocco this year, Many of whom were Muslim. They invited us into their homes, talked w/us, sang & danced w/us & laughed w/us. They never once asked our religion or judged us for the color of our skin. We found we had more in common than not. It’s unfathomable to me that grown adults believe walls & imaginary lines should keep people out or in. It’s archaic & it’s repeating the past. Let’s start again. Please. I understand the false pretenses under which Thanksgiving started & I understand how it was celebrated for so many years. I also understand that it is a symbol of mass over consumption as the precursor to Black Friday. Lets do better. Let’s use it as a representation of when & how we changed it. What we want moving forward. Let it be just as it says. We are thankful & we are giving. THANKFUL AND GIVING. That is it. That should be enough & it should be all year long. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you sweet humans.✌🏼🧡 . .#howtolosehundredsoffollowers #wastedinpicnumberten

MY SHANTI RING IS LIVE AND READY FOR PURCHASE at @loop_jewelry 🖤 My dear friends (actual friends not social media friends:) at @loop_jewelry gave me the honor of designing a ring for the cause of my choice which 100% of the proceeds will go to. AND @loop_jewelry will match all proceeds!! I chose the @alzassociation which dedicates itself to the study of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and Dementia. This ring is in honor of my sweet and wonderful Dad who has been struggling with this life altering disease for several years now. I’ve designed the ring in the shape of an eye and named it ‘SHANTI’ which essentially means spiritual and mental peace and is exactly what I meditate on for my Dad daily. The ring is sterling silver with black and champagne diamonds and a purple amethyst inside the band which is the color for The Alzheimer’s Association. There will only be 20 of these rings made and that’s it. They are available through @loop_jewelry so if you are able and interested, it would mean so much if we could sell them all and raise money for this important cause which affects so many. PLEASE let me know if you purchase one! Thank you so much🙏🏻 #alzheimersawareness #loopliving #bestsharedlife #intheloop
Our 4th annual Pow Wow Women’s Retreat is coming up! Please head over to @powwowwomensretreat and click on our website for all of the information 🙏🏼 Of everything my business has allowed me to be a part of , I’m most proud of & grateful for our Pow Wow Women’s Retreat. Along with my dear friends @fifteenshadesofgreen & @korusoundwaves we began offering Yoga at our warehouse not only to raise money for families & individuals facing the challenges of cancer but more importantly to gather as a community to collectively intend peace, love & healing to a person in need. It was such a powerful & positive experience that with the help of 2 more of my dear friends Liz at @desertaerie and Chef Charlie from @joshuatreeweddingcompany we launched our first @powwowwomensretreat in 2016. Over the last three years we’ve met women of all ages and backgrounds who have helped change our lives for the better & who have gone on to change their own. The love & support from these women is overwhelming & there really are no words. What’s incredible is that each & every one of us is there for a purpose and though we don’t know what that purpose is when we first arrive, by the time we leave we understand just how important each of our roles played in the healing of each other. Our 4th annual Pow Wow Women’s Retreat will take place March 28-April 1 2019 at @desertaerie ✨ This will be an authentic weekend filled with self healing, gratitude, enlightenment & self realization through meditation, yoga, music & artful workshops. You don't need to know how to meditate, be a certain age or practice Yoga to join us. The intention of this retreat is to share experiences with women who may be in many different places in their lives, to learn new ways to view ourselves & others around us through love & gratitude & to learn how to manifest our dreams by releasing fear & doubt. We focus on & feed who we are meant to be, not who people think we are, or who we think we should be.

This is a corner of my bedroom. My husband sits 2’ out of frame meditating. For the last 3 years he meditates twice a day for sometimes up to 40 minutes each time. 14 years ago he went through the diagnosis of cancer, multiple surgeries and every possible scenario you can imagine and even some you can’t possibly ever imagine. Given particular circumstances of this experience it led our family down some pretty dark and windy roads for many years to follow. He has been cancer free for 11 years but our family as a whole struggled. Depression, mental illness, infidelity, addiction anger and sadness were all a part of our search for how to heal, how to escape and how to cope with a pretty traumatic and unique situation at the time. I’m sharing this because it’s real life. It’s ugly and messy and shameful and uncomfortable. Its embarrassing and it’s awkward and it’s all a part of our story and what got us here, to living in the present. I am grateful that my husband is alive and cancer free, I’m grateful that he is meditating 2’ out of frame and I’m grateful for our imperfect story. 🙏🏼

A few years ago we had the honor of styling a Dia de los Muertos altar honoring the late mama of @chefmarcela which was published in her book ‘Casa Marcela’. This altar was about 12” wide and took some time but we love how it turned out. To all the beautiful souls no longer here on earth🙏🏼 And to the following victims of the latest mass shooting here in America.
