The Wild Sister Manifesto took the place of a new moon vision board this month as it spoke to me so deeply. It hangs primitively with a piece of scotch tape between my bedroom window and the windowsill. I wanted to be able to see it when I opened my eyes every morning. The one phrase that stood out to me most is “Be the kind of person you want your children to be.”. This is a very humbling challenge… Read more »

I’m a couple days late posting my intentions for this new moon.  For this August moon I will be focusing on gratitude and abundance.  I found this fitting as the kids are about to go back to school in a couple weeks and I know it will be kind of chaotic as we get back into the swing of things.  As we are no strangers to chaos (that’s how we roll!)

Time has escaped me this summer, and sitting down to write this post I noticed that my last entry was on the new moon. I had set my intention to clear some clutter, and I am pleased to report on this full moon that I have made some excellent progress! Of course this is an ongoing goal for me, but it is so nice to look around and see…feel…some SPACE. Yesterday I looked to find the name of tonight’s moon…. Read more »
