ACCIDENTAL FASHIONISTA 💙 When your new best friend is a former fashion designer for @CalvinKlein and you go crazy sporting the brand, quite affordably thanks to @TJMaxx, baby! There's a great story behind the outfits I wore to each of my interviews in D.C. but suffice it to say I've been blessed. 😇 I'm grateful for the sartorially gifted angels in my life who've been all about women's empowerment and have helped me walk my talk with joy and confidence! 💚 Seen here: post-interview glow at Dupont Circle in D.C. 👢Sam Edelman, 👜DKNY and everything else -- even undies -- by CK! 😂
UNICORN GOES TO WASHINGTON 💚 Heading back to DC to pick up some more of my vibrational escrow, as Abraham Hicks says. Isn't it funny how we think of unicorns as a fabled creature of fairy tales, but when your purpose is aligned with source, your unique set of qualities find a way to play, unfold and evolve in just the right place at just the right time. A unicorn is just a being who manifests itself despite fear and self-limiting beliefs and is willing to see miracles in the ordinary. The horn is really a third eye. I spent most of my life not unicorn-ing. Eff that. Here we go ... weeeeee! 💚
BREAKING NEWS! Goofy unicorn caught stealing Concord grapes and pumpkins in upstate New York!
HARVEST SOUP FOR THE SOUL This soup celebrated my first fall up north where I've enjoyed local harvests and many conversations with the farmers who grew my food. It's also a tribute to my Spanish heritage as a hearty caldo made with whatever was available at the farmer's market and the garden: homemade bone broth, carrots, potatoes, roasted garlic, greens, thyme and parsley. The only item from the store was white beans!
🍒 Winter is coming and I'll need a manfolk for cuddling, so here's a profile photo for farmersonly.com. 🌽 I am teasing of course, but can you feel the love? 🍏 Where would we be without our farmers who toil hard to bring us nutritious food? 🍄 Bless them! 🍎 I've enjoyed a bounty of yummy gifts from the earth since I arrived in the country. 🍐 Thank you, farmer!
Apple pickin' in upstate New York near Ithaca. The red delicious are in fact delicious and the cider was heavenly! Channeling my Asturian ancestors from northern Spain a little ... I am thoroughly enjoying autumn. Long walks along the forest on hillside country roads, leaves crackling in the winds, bursts of color, cool crisp air and of course, the bounty of the season on my plate. Such blessings. I'm so grateful I took to the road last April! These are my little apples in the little Americas I've come to love. It too a leap of faith to find myself here in picking apples. I never imagined the unexpected simple joy.
Left the hills to go to the hill. A little Mary Tyler Moore moment, minus the hat! The scariest thing since I left Miami in a leap of faith? The steep escalator at Dupont Circle. 😂 Letting go, living without fear ... I couldn't even have dreamed about the perfection of this moment ... or the outfit! 😇 So blessed with earth angels who've helped me come this far. ❤
Morning Stroll Taking it all in before winter comes, I welcome the new day with a meditation stroll, cup of steaming tea in hand. I see the tree making its transition to fall, quietly, patiently humming its riot of red. 🌲
Fall in Vestal It's my first time witnessing fall in the northern hemisphere. Every day, I walk the same path and witness nature shifting, painting a new canvas before me. She reaches out with her brush, dabs a little red here, a little yellow there. A million leaves. I can almost see them, one by one, evolving. I walk the same path every day. I could easily get bored. But how? To wake up and see the world anew, fresh with wonder is all I need. Every single day. One leaf at a time. Ever grateful. If only we could enjoy our own changes, the seasons within, with the same patience.
