Anniversary Part 3: Love Heals

This post is pretty late, as our anniversary was over a month ago, but here it is!

The last part of our anniversary was at our favorite beach in Solana. I love that little coastal town. I did not wear the right shoes, but it was so worth it to run around on the sand and take in the salty air. It was the first time I had the urge to really beach comb and I collected so many rocks! There was so many round smooth stones, I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning! I am excited to paint them :)

Jimmy even got to play some b-ball with our makeshift hoop! Haha! We actually played two boys a legitimate two-on-two game as we were leaving. It kicked my butt, but it was fun. The boys ended up winning because I am not a very good player :)

I have to say being with this man for two years has healed me in so many ways. I was resistant at first, and I would do my destructive, cold behaviors to push him away as I have done in the past. But his patience and support and love has softened me; I want to be better for me, him, us. We have our differences and issues like any other couple, but the thread that connects us is full with deep love, respect, and gratitude. He encourages me to be me. As I am always with my head in the clouds, his earthy grounding energy brings me back to center. Thank you, Jimmy. I love you.

I think the bench says it all :)

Love and Blessings,

After our favorite cafe, we went to the San Diego Botanical Gardens because they were having an herb festival! It was so fun and relaxing to explore the grounds. And there were so many vendors with beautiful plants, herbs, seeds, and organic skincare to buy. I ended up getting these succulents and a piece of peacock ore. And I want that Succulent wreath! It was such an enjoyable day with my love. We headed to our favorite beach afterward, which I will share later :)

Love and Blessings,

Oh! The cafe let's you write on their walls, so two years ago we wrote 'Marissa + Jimmy' in a heart, but now the wheat-grass shelf is blocking it! We thought it was funny so I took a picture of it :)



International Self-Love Day: Love Space of Laura Mazurek

>> In honor of International Self- Love Day <<

Hello Moondaughter readers!  I'm Laura from Roots and Feathers.  I'm excited to be here on Marissa's blog today sharing a little love nest I made in my home for the whole month of February in honor of Love.  I don't normally celebrate Valentine's Day really at all.  My husband and I don't exchange gifts or plan romantic dates.  It's always kind of seemed a bit silly to me.  But, I do love to honor Love itself.  And when Marissa asked me to share an altar of mine during February, I thought it would be wonderful to have a little space set up in our home for the whole month, in honor of this word.

The things I chose to place here in this space go beyond just the love between my husband and I, but also for self love.  As I was building it I realized just how healing it was.  I had just received these two prints from Erica Herbert, of the two beautiful naked woman.  The colors and playfulness of them bring me so much joy.  My own sexuality is something I need healing in, and these prints remind me of that.  I added specific stones for this as well.  Stepping into the age of such deep femininity, my journey here has began to get very real.  Setting these intentions I feel is opening up my being to the healing vibrations.

I also chose very calming elements, like my amethyst cluster, my donovan record, a lavendar peacock feather, and some lavender herbs. And the incense and sage.  These things bring me peace and a great sense of relaxation, which I think is a state needed for this healing process.  I included two rose petals in the lavender mix, representing my parents (who are both gone).  My journey of love and healing has so much to do with them and their loss.  I also added a medicine pouch my dear friend Lauren Luquin made me filled with healing intentions just for this.  It is such a sacred piece to me.  The beeswax candle is one made for feminine sexuality.

The little prayer flag is one I made for my shop, a little series of textile flags with words of intention.  I decided to keep it in this space until its ready for a new home.

Having this little space full of these things, in a place in my home I regularly walk by, has been a nice daily reminder.  I think Id love to create a new one each month, with a new intention.  My word for the year is Cultivate.  So maybe something Id like to Cultivate each month.

I hope everyone enjoys this International Self Love Day.  Id love to know if you plan on carving out a moment for yourself, and what you intend to do.  How do you celebrate your own sacred femininity through self love?  I think we can always learn from each other and help each other in these ways.  Thank you so much for sharing a moment in my space.


Thank you so much Laura for sharing your beauty and sincerity. You are an inspiration <3
