Some of my fave images from this week... Chloe + mom waving at me at the Tough Mudder. Cliff getting all psyched up for the 12 mile obstacle course ahead (also at the Tough Mudder). Me + American Beauty Berries found on a nature walk. + of course Ned! Cut the neck out of some old t's and we had the best time playing last night before bed. Sitting in my office with Ned on my lap feeling super grateful for...
- The love of strangers turned friends over 10 days of shared experience in the Sweet Surrender sugar detox. The next one will be Dec 1. It's not to be missed. - A partner who makes me laugh. - pearly whites, nourishment, hydration, warm bones + couch time - Allowing the best compliment about my beautiful perspective on life to wash over me from my first health coach + longtime friend! And then noticing so many comments on my perspective... feels like permission to stay weird (in the best possible way)! - Hashtags. Seriously! My friend, Kelly Rae sent me the most awesome text yesterday that was pretty much all hashtags. BEST LAUGHTER of the week so far! - My amazing friend (and Campaign Manager for Campaign For Confidence) Anne who holds space for me everyday. She's leading a cleanse next month. - An entire week without wearing a bra... embracing my inner hippy. - Smoothies! The easiest and most supportive way to start my day. So happy to share two new recipes with you! The first one Cliff created and delivered to me in my office with his handwritten recipe. #husbandoftheyear
