Happy May!

So if you read my last post you know that things have been in..uh..flux. A lot of flux. A lot of whoosh. A lot of growth. A lot of smoothies. A lot of love. I am so grateful. 

To the recipe


Honestly? It's been pretty spectacular, in a bizarre sort of way. I feel like the wind is at my back. My creative drive is booming. My heart is bursting.

Also, I'm kind of getting abs? For the first time in my life. Which is super cool. I've been in the gym at least twice a week throughout the past two months, and I've been pairing that with almost daily yoga and some pretty awesome food choices. Intense self-love and self-care is how I'm coping. I highly recommend it. 

The consistent love, effort, and commitment I've been giving my body is showing up. I have tons of energy, my moods are pretty stable, and I feel super strong. I'm proud of me. Also: I'm learning Spanish!

Back to that awesome nutrition though: I've been making some freakin' delicious smoothies! Like this one: 


I think you're totally going to love it.
