My Morning Routine in General, Love

My morning routine differs a little bit every day depending on where I am in the world, how the baby has slept and how I’m feeling that day. Normally I pick up Lea Luna first thing and then we have tea and eat breakfast together but if I’m up a little earlier I roll my yoga mat out first thing. One thing that doesn’t change even when I travel is taking my temperature with Natural Cycles first thing in the morning. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this and wanted to share a...

Day dreams turn to nightmares and nightmares turn to day dreams and round and round it goes until we make peace with where we are and who we are here with. At the end of the day... It’s all love. Don’t...
