moving mountains...

still processing this past week at Serendipity Retreat.   i am moved, shifted, lifted up, released, cracked open a bit, expanded, closer to my truth...............the words are endless.  

i jokingly said to a few of the women "who was i before this week?.....did i even exist?"............but there is a lot of truth to that.   how have i survived without that kind of connection....that energy.....that space to just be all that i am...and a space that sets you up to discover more.   those sorts of moments move mountains.   i am forever changed by these women.

5 things i can't resist...

Sunset through..., originally uploaded by Steffe.

there are some things that my body just can't seem to resist if you ask me if i want to partake in something.....

1. water - i can't get enough...i will always be happy to drink more

2. bbq chips - i mean seriously?...c'mon now.

3. tomatoes....or anything with tomato as the focal point....sandwich, bruschetta

4. BACON....who doesn't know that about me yet? i will snatch the last piece of bacon off of any plate.

5. if you have hidden valley ranch dressing and something to dip in it...i'm good. i will stay until it's gone.

so there is my info for the day. i've been busy working working working. how do i acquire SOOOOO many beads??? oh yeah, cause i can't seem to resist them either. obviously.

i'm headed to the dreaded post office, and to to the grocery store to get, yes you guessed it, bbq chips, bacon, tomatoes, and who cares about all the rest of the groceries. i even dreamed about buying bacon last night. what was i thinking not eating meat!?

tomato sandwich

i mean seriously...does it get any better than a fresh tomato sandwich? i think not. add some bbq chips and sweet tea in a mason jar and you have my version of bliss.

listing listing listing....that is what i have been doing on etsy today. i have more long bohemian necklaces in the shop. i have had way more fun making these than the gazillion earrings i've made. i think if i do stay on the path of jewelry for a bit longer that i will focus more on these necklaces. i have had so much fun layering and picking and choosing which ones to wear on a daily basis....which colors, which length, which shape....plus, i'm the simple kind of girl that likes just throwing it over my head on the way out the door...or vice versa.......i hate messing with clasps and closures. ....and i REALLY hate when they fall to the front of your neck and is made visible. ugh. it's always been a big pet peeve of mine.

so, onto to other things. have you heard about Serendipity Retreat yet? if you haven't go check it out. if all goes as planned then i will be headed there in less than two weeks time.

as for other news, i don't recommend drinking the balsamic vinegar/tomato/etc juice leftover from making bruschetta. trust me on this, don't do it. it may seem like a good idea at the time, but it's not.
