what we see
is merely a reflection
of who we are
what we see
is merely a reflection
of who we are
for sunshine, sparkles and smiles,
for moments of balance in a life of chaos,
for happy, happy times,
Be not afraid to bare your soul.
forget the rest
It’s a lazy, hazy, Sunday. So here’s a little somethin’ to spice up your blue skies, sugar.
A crispy, crunchy classic.
In all honesty, I debated posting this easy recipe (after all, you must have seen it before). But I thought, the simplest things can be enjoyed over and over again, can’t they?
Every time it’s so different, everything is. I never stop shivering delight when sun wakes me in the morning- it’s a new day, and I might do the same things, but they’ll be different. I never get tired of a deep, luscious shavasana at the end of a yoga class. I never get tired of hugs or kisses or smiles from strangers. I never get tired of connecting with beautiful people, of reading your comments, of sharing secrets, though some days are busier than others.
And at the end of the day, I hope I never get tired of living, of trying, of burning bright and out and lying soft in the shadows till a new fire alights.
And I hope you don’t either, because life is too short and too precious to be tired just yet. Save that for next century.
A little deep for a post on sweet potatoes, but hey, it’s all with love.
Thanks for being here with me on this journey. I’m happy to be your friend. <3
Preheat oven to 450oF.
Slice sweet potato into thin 1/4″ circles. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, cayenne, cinnamon and love. Toss to coat and lay flat on baking sheet.
Bake 10 minutes. Take out of oven & flip slices over. Bake 10 more minutes.
Let cool (if you want the crunch), and enjoy! Mmm. Happy Sunday!
is opening your heart fully to the experience,
accepting the joys and the pains of your path,
the willingness to fall and fail and fall again,
and the guts to get back up and do it all over.
Failure is part of the universe’s curriculum.
Hurt is a natural human instinct.
Discontent fuels growth.
And rejection is a sign that you’re meant for better things.
So keep your eyes bright,
your intentions pure,
chase after youthful dreams with all your heart
and never let the world harden you.
Be soft, kind, loving, open, aware.
Change yourself, and the world changes around you.
for the high, high heights we strive to reach,
for soul songs, kindred spirits and serendipitous days,
for those who smile despite their circumstances,
Gratitude is the key to happiness.
I am thankful for who I am; for what I have seen, felt, and loved. It’s easy to lose ourselves amidst the chaos of life. Through Dear Universe posts, I remind myself to take time every day to slow down, appreciate, and enjoy the beauty of each moment.
All my love, joy & happy thoughts to you! <3
For papa’s birthday, we made a pie. A mere sliver of our love for him and mama.
There are no words to describe how grateful I am for my parents, for they have given me everything. It’s my parents who inspire me to do what I love, to work my tushy off, to dream big… and they lead by example.
All I really want to say today is thank you to all the incredible parents out there. Happy, healthy families are the foundation of happy, healthy societies. Raising love is the most important job in the world, and you’re killin’ it out there.
Love, love and love always,
Blend nuts & dates separately in food processor, then blend together with shredded coconut. Sprinkle coconut on bottom of pie pan (to prevent sticking) and pat crust in.
Blend cashews in food processor until smooth. Add zucchinis & bananas. Add cocoa, maca, cinnamon, ginger & sweetener of your choice. Pour overtop crust.
Decorate with maca, chia seeds, coconut, almonds, or whatever you want! Go wild.
Lick the bowl. Freeze overnight or until solid. Smile, share, give thanks & enjoy! <3
