2020, you can certainly go down as one of - if not the - weirdest year on record. But in the spirit of attempting to maintain some sanity and mental clarity - and I must say thanks to the suggestion of a dietitian I've been chatting to - it feels good to lean into what… Continue reading A feel good list
Well that was one big break! But in between an increasingly active toddler keeping me on my toes, a child coming to grips with the weirdness going on in the world, protests and the COVID-19 lockdown and the subsequent return to the world – and all the big emotions that brought up – this little… Continue reading Life
