I feel most creatively fulfilled when... my external space is beautiful, my internal space is aligned and a clear and my heart is open. I can do anything in these moments.
I'm currently working on... a baby. Due to be working on bringing him into this world any day now and then I’ll be working on loving and feeding him while still being everything I need to be for my 5 year old Fox, being a loving and patient partner, finding time for self care, mindfulness, breath, baths and then eventually my doula business which has very big dreams!
This time last year, I wish I knew... oh my god. I was flailing. I was disconnected, depressed and disinterested. I needed to call something in and I was desperate to be pregnant because I felt it would the thing to ground me... little did I know that it would be the greatest transformation of my life to date.
I'm grateful for... this year, my babies, my love, our supportive, good looking and wise community.
