IMG_3249

Hello, heaven! This is one of my go-to smoothies whenever I feel like I need a pick-me up these days. It's thick, chocolatey, filling and absolutely delicious. Here's how! 1 frozen banana 2 tbsp almond butter 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk dash of raw cacao ice cacao nibs unsweetened coconut flakes Mix the banana, almond butter, almond milk, cacao and ice in a blender. If you don't have banana frozen you can use a fresh one (frozen ones just make for a creamier smoothie), and if you don't have chocolate almond milk you can use...

We miss you, Pep. in Love

costarica-rachel-299

Throwback to a beach day with Laika and the most handsome boy I've ever known. We miss you, Pep. These last months I've felt less like a piece of my heart is missing and more like I have a companion by my side. I know you walk beside me... All the time. I'm never alone. The other day Ringo howled with the wind and I swear it was you. He's never howled before and I never heard it again. There are those moments when I feel you so close. When I'm fearful, or lonely.

The Moments in Between in General, Love

naturalpool-117

  I live for the little moments in between. Opening the drapes in the morning and watching the first sunlight of the day filter in through the window. Sitting down on my yoga mat with a cup of tea, not in my practice yet but just breathing in the steam from the cup, anticipating the breath and movement to come. Walking the dogs and pausing on a cliff to breathe in the ocean, waves crashing beneath me. Making a beautiful meal and waiting a second to devour it, everything perfect and colorful on my plate....

May All Beings Everywhere be Happy and Free in General, Love

002-banner-blog

लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनो भवन्तु May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words and the actions of my own life contribute to that happiness and to that freedom for all. How many days in a row can we go on being heartbroken? How many senseless killings will we have to endure? How many sons, daughters, fathers, mothers lost? We cannot fight hate with hate. We cannot combat fear with fear. And we can't win one war by starting another. We can only pray. We can pray. Hope. Return to love. Tonight I'm...
