The hubby and i watched @freesolofilm last night!
have you heard of this edge of your seat, hands damp and clammy, squinty eye wanting to turn your face away from the screen documentary?
yeah it’s that’s good. it’s about this climber @alexhonnold who climbs the world’s most famous rock... the 3,000ft el capitan in yosemite- without a rope.
it’s a freaking nail biter and it’s so riveting to witness his process and ultimately his feat. filmmaker @jimmy_chin did a freaking beautiful job, as they discuss fear, death, dying, pain, perfection, love, childhood, timing and ultimately having a dream/ goal that you are literally willing to die for.
it’s intense. and beautiful. it got me thinking about so many things and how there are things in me and parts of my soul that are dying to be shared.
alex did something unexpected and shocking. he turned around the first attempt saying “he just wasn’t feeling it”. no matter how much he longed for it- it just wasn’t the right timing and he really couldn’t explain that feeling to anyone else.
except i get that feeling. that feeling of wanting something so bad and yet not being ready. needing to do more work, needing to clear something deeper. i don’t know what it was for alex exactly but it sure was inspiring watching his story unfold.
and at the end of the day it got me thinking.... is there a dream/goal that i would spend y e a r s cultivating the perfect plan, recruiting others to empower me and in the end... give my life to?
yeah it’s a pretty heavy question... i’m still wrestling with it - i think i know the answer...
how about you? is there a dream or goal on your heart that you would dedicate years to, surrender the timing and give up your life to? i’m excited to hear your response!
What will you be drinking this fall?
the weather in the mornings has begun to cool a bit, which means my summertime staple matcha coldbrew is now a little too cold for my evenings unwinding out on the patio.
but to every drink there is a season (that’s what they say, right?) so i’m happily swapping out my iced matchas for the hot ones.
what can i say? i like what i like! i posted about matcha over the weekend also- is it too matcha ??
(see what i did there?)
I love getting to know exactly who you are! today is get to know your customers day so it seems only right that i take a post to dig deep into knowing you.
so tell me, can you answer one of the following questions?
1️⃣ what’s the food you never tire of eating?
2️⃣ what’s the song that makes you reach for the volume and immediately blast it, so you can sing along, even if it’s a song you secretly love, but might be embarrassed to play with your friends around!
i can’t wait to read your comments!
I’m signing this letter, can you too?

millions of us spent last week imagining how it might feel to be dr. ford in this moment -- watching the aftermath of her world-shifting testimony unfold in this country. some warrior friends and i decided we must to do everything in our power to make sure dr. ford understands what her courage means to all of us. we need to make sure she hears -- directly from us -- that her heroic sacrifice was not in vain.
we know that while we fight against fear and hate and lies and greed- it is ever important to remember to actively love: to stop and honor those who stand mightily for hope, truth, and honor.
so together, we wrote dr. ford a love letter. our dream is that by the time dr. ford receives this letter, she and her family will see that it’s been signed by every love warrior on earth. please take a moment, if you can, to sit and read this letter. and then, if you feel so moved, please sign your name. after the letter had made its way around the world, we’ll get it to dr. blasey ford.
After a few days of fall weather and rain...
it’s starting to feel like summer again 🌴 it’s making me want to go back to the beaches in cabo!
i ain’t mad though... soaking up the sun because i know the next season is right around the corner!
are you loving the heat wave in cali or ready for fall?!
Isn’t october just the coziest month? i love this time of year and relish bundled up evening walks by the lake with my love and snuggling in fuzzy socks with a good book on the couch.
i love this time of the year because i can indulge in heated yoga and warm yummy soups, but tell me i’m not alone.
what are your favorite cozy indulgences this time of year?
9 years of marriage and there’s no holding back! full gq status and embracing it.
this is what i love about you so much, your playful joyous don’t give an f- “no ones stealing my sunshine” outlook on life.
during my sister’s speech at our wedding she said “if god didn’t bring ryan into jasmine’s life she would starve to death” 🙃
it’s true boo, without your love i would be hungry for love, empty and starving on so many levels!
i can’t imagine living my life without you… you feed my spirit, soul and belly!
i’m more vulnerable, brave and determined because of your unconditional love.
you bring joy into my life and shine the sun just for me. you remind me to love myself deeper so that i can love and serve others.
thank you for buttering my bread, annoying me until i laugh, making me all the tacos my heart desires and embarking on crazy journeys with me!👏🏼
and never judging my special brand of crazy 😜
i love you forever.
October 4th marks one of the most sacred days: it’s national taco day!
how will you be celebrating?
let’s taco ‘bout it. i have plans to consume tacos for all three meals!🌮
chances are i’ll eat a similar menu 3 or 4 times next week as well—you think i need a special day to go taco loco? egg tacos for breakfast, cauliflower tacos for lunch, red snapper tacos for dinner 🙌🏼
now you. what are you eating today?
I live just north of san francisco in marin county and by the time i flipped the calendar to october, it’s already clear that autumn has officially arrived.
it’s not only the drop in temperature and the beautifully changing leaves, today we welcomed in the change of season with the fresh scent of rain on the redwoods and homemade vegetable “recovery ramen” - after a beautiful weekend celebrating my cousins wedding!
how do you welcome the fall?
