Afraid.

blog, lifestyle, meditation, yoga, mom

My baby is one month old today. Already! I can’t even believe it. She was wide awake all day with me, so naturally we cuddled all day. Anyways. Last night after I put her to bed, I spent a lot of time meditating and gathering my thoughts. I’m about to take another huge leap in my life, and even though I’m excited beyond what words can describe, I’m also afraid. It’s not even that I’m afraid of new things, or of change. I’ve always lived in a life of constant change. This is somehow different. I’m afraid of going after what I’ve wanted for eight years because it’s the first thing that I’ve ever done just for me.

Really though, I feel so good about everything I got done this weekend and I think life is only going to get more exciting from here. Continue reading

Why Bad is Good.

Free Spirit Babe // Why Bad is Good

Sometimes bad things happen, heartbreaking even. But you know what? Those things can be turned into opportunities. We recently were told that if we choose to stay in our home, that we would have to give up our dogs. Our association has received a number of complaints about them, mostly based off of stereotypes around huskies. Our dogs are well trained, so it’s unfortunate that we have to choose between our first home (which I still am in love with) and our dogs. However, our dogs are family and no matter how much I love our house, what fun is it to live next to neighbors who can’t accept our family? So now we’ve got new goals for the short term future that I’m beyond excited about. Continue reading

Starting Again.

Free Spirit Babe // Starting Again

My baby is here, and she’s almost three weeks old! I really can’t believe it. I’ve been so busy and exhausted but I’m so in love with her. As my recovery from labor moves forward, I’m nearing the time where I can start back up with my fitness again (besides just walking)! I’m really excited but I know I’m going to have to start slow and move my way back up, even though I want to jump right back in where I left off. I’ve started putting together my plan to start again and get my pre-baby body back (and maybe even make it better!). Continue reading

Peace Apparel Co.

Free Spirit Babe // Peace Apparel Co.

I am so excited. As I sit here bouncing my beautiful baby, I finally have opened Peace Apparel Co.. Although I spent a lot of time making designs and choosing only the ones that I felt reflected my vision of inner-peace, it’s about so much more than putting those designs on clothing. It’s about supporting environmental sustainability, and it’s about supporting small business, and it’s about supporting American jobs. That’s what excites me the most – it’s so much bigger than just a clothing line. Continue reading
