Moments: Finding Rhythm

I can't complain about 2015 thus far. It has felt pretty surreal, productive, and slow and steady all at once. The other weekend we got a rug and an ottoman for our TV area, and it finally feels like we are finding a rhythm in our home. And of course the boys love the new rug and ottoman too. That is always a plus. I soon want to show you glimpses into our space. We live in a studio so it has been challenging to make it meet all our needs, and think it does for the most part now. 

And yes I live in Southern California, so it is just starting to look like fall! The good thing about living here is that we can have a garden basically all year round. We have a small little side yard and we are excited to plan a little garden more than we did last summer. I want lots more succulents, and herbs, and I want to finish my little meditation space. The last picture is my donkey tail. It was sitting too close to the birdfeeders and the birds were picking and eating it! So I moved it and it has been recovering very well! I will be transplanting it to another pot very soon.

I never really knew how comforting having a home of your own could really be. It has become my sanctuary and my place to ground myself. And though I know Jimmy and I can drive each other crazy sometimes in such small quarters, our place is full of love. And that's what counts.

Nest: Vanity Pinspiration

Recently I created a jewelry wall in the open closet in my bathroom. It looks like the sliding doors had been taken off leaving only the closet rack. Currently I have a small dresser in there where I keep my personal crystal collection, candles, incense, and other altar trinkets. Then I thought how cool would it be to put another little table and create a vanity area? So that will be my next project! Maybe I will drape curtains, add more shelving, and put my personal Goddess altar in this space. I am so excited to see how it unfolds! For now I have been pinning away inspirations! These are all off my Pinterest - so hopefully they are linked to their rightful sources!

A part of me wants to live like this...

And then a part of me wants this... The daily struggle....

Nest: Feels Like Home

This weekend I finally felt like myself again and unpacked and organized the rest of our place. It was so healing. When I made Nest my word of the year, I didn't realize how it would really affect me. Finally my roots feel comfy. There's more intention in my items. I feel at peace. I've never felt comfortable sharing my space, but now I feel the energy is exactly how I want it to feel.

 And as you can see, my boys are happier in this place. They love to look out the window and climb on all the shelves. It's tricky to keep things cat proof when the majority of my decor is crystals, hah! I have to pack away my large crystal ball everyday (I will share it soon!) so the boys don't think it's their toy....

This coming weekend I will be visiting a soul sister in Santa Barbara. I am so looking forward to my time with her. We can be goofy, soulful, inspiring, and loving all at once. I can't wait! I have a massive to do list before Friday, but thank goodness Mercury is out of retrograde! I will get things done! I have some fun posts in mind! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday <3

Lunar Blessings,
