Happy nontoxic Valentine’s Day: bubble bath

Slide1

Is there anything more indulgent than a bubble bath? Hands down, my favorite place in my home is the soaking tub. It gets a ton of use. Even a quick foot soak after a long day is enough for me to feel nourished and refreshed. I stock up on bubble baths to   care for every mood and beeswax candles (they purify the air) like it’s my job. That way, bath time always feels like a retreat and a reset. Whether it’s for me or my 5 year old, I make sure tub time is Read More →

Happy nontoxic Valentine’s Day: roses

rose

I have a confession to make. I already bought myself a Valentine’s gift. Romantic, huh? I’ve had my eye on a David Austin rose bush for about a year now. It’s a gardener’s cult favorite and I’ve been lusting for the beautiful Heritage variety.

The coffee break reimagined

PMD coffee break final Collage

Loving Kindness for Life

Big Sur

{One of my favorite spots in Big Sur. I  need to get back there in 2014.} I attended a really special day long mediation with Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock years ago. He’s a spiritual hero of mine. If you have any interest in meditation and mindfulness you might enjoy his books and teachings. He’s approachable and speaks in a way that really makes sense in our modern (crazy making) culture. He was on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday yesterday and it was such a delight to watch. You can catch the full episode of Super Soul Read More →

Weekend links for the holidays

Holiday table

Happy weekend, friends. I’ve come across so many interesting stories, recipes and thoughts online lately. In the midst of the consumerism and crazy of the holidays there also seems to be no shortage of thoughtful and thought-provoking ideas online. I just had to share a few. If you’re looking for a break from the hustle, check them out. Healthy cashew date treats I plan to make next week. When setting a goal ask yourself “how do you want to feel?” A genius approach to goal setting. Flower crowns. It looks like I’ll never tire of Read More →
