A creative. A person who feels alllll the feels. There is nothing wrong with you if you’re an emotional being. My god, the greatest people I know are emotional beings and it’s precisely why they are so good at what they do. The poets, the artists, the healers, the creatives who feeeeeel. Isn’t that what we’re here for? Not to dumb ourselves down for people or shrink back or make ourselves small or make other people okay and “comfortable” with who we are. We’re here to feel and love and create and LIVE. All of it. This book has moved me in ways I can’t explain. Clarissa Pinkola Estés talks about feminine energy in such a profound way. Women are strong and powerful and yet we often don’t realize the power we hold - the FULL potential of that power. There are many times in our lives where we lose ourselves and give our power away. This book is about tuning into that feminine energy and watching the Universe step in to help us find our way again. To live unapologetically and authentically. Thankful for the words on these pages. Every one of them. ✨

My new line of moon mists that I use for everything - body spray, hair mist, cleansing mist for meditation and yoga, sleep mist for my pillow, smell goods for my car - you name it. I formulated all of the scents myself. It took a lot of trial and error to get them just right, but I wouldn’t settle until they were perfect. The Malibu mist is scented with jasmine and is a beautiful compliment to the Malibu face oil. Stardust has a rose base for all of that floral goodness. Chakra is my go to for meditation and yoga - think Palo Santo in a bottle. Wander is an earthy, citrus scent perfect for men and women. All mists come in a 4 ounce bottle. My babies love these mists too and the best part is that they’re clean and natural - NO toxins! They’re safe enough for babes too. :) I am so excited to share this line with you and hope you love all of the love I’ve poured into it!! xx #crosandcove #naturalbeauty #holisticbeauty #holisticskincare #moonmist #wellness #naturalskincare

Sooooo these little beauties are almost ready to launch. I cannot tell you how much I love this new line and how proud I am of this new line. I spent months perfecting it, many more months letting herbs and oils soak in the sun, and countless late nights mixing and pouring everything myself. This face oil was a labor of love and is named Malibu because it smells like a Jasmine bush and the ocean had a baby. It reminds me of a night I stepped off of the pier in Malibu and stood on the side of the PCH smelling a Jasmine bush while the smell of the ocean drifted through. There is more to come, but this little bottle of goodness is my favorite thing from the new CROS & COVE line so I had to share it first. I can’t wait for you all to see the line-up! The best part is that it’s all natural. There are no toxins in any of the products and I’m so proud of that. The new CROS & COVE page will be coming soon!! #crosandcove #naturalbeauty #faceoil #jasmineoil #wellness #holisticbeauty #holisticskincare

My father-in-law designed this house. He is a Frank Lloyd Wright fan like myself. All five of his babies were raised here. There is a pond in the back that all of my own babies have stood over squealing as ducks and geese swim by. It’s a magical place with tall trees, amazing artwork he’s painted over the years, and toys from when my husband was little that my kids still go crazy over. As soon as you walk in the door my mother-in-law will hug you, ask you what you want to eat or drink, and wait on you all day. I love this home and I love the love that’s filled this home and continues to fill this home. An incredible little slice of magic. ✨

I owe it all to you - this beautiful swelling of my heart. Our days aren’t always easy, but every single one of them contain joy and laughter and beauty and grace. That alone is priceless to me. The things I want for you are not wrapped up in shiny things, they’re so very simple. I know your hearts will always be pure and kind. I know you’ll always choose empathy over pride or ego. I know you’ll always be leaders and helpers. I know you’ll always be grateful for the people and experiences in your life. I know you’ll always follow your own heart and not the will of what others want for you. I know you’ll love your people well. I know you’ll be seekers and explorers breathing in this big, wide world. I know you’ll give freely with no expectations of anything in return. I know you’ll never be afraid to kiss the oceans and climb the mountains. I know you’ll always choose a thankful heart over a heart of lack. I know all of this because I’m your mama and I won’t settle for anything less. You have been my hardest work and my most rewarding. My purpose, my meaning to all of my days, my greatest and most wonderful adventure. My love for you is too big for words... xx

Per usual I cried about 18 times at the thought of my tiny cherub, with a full head of black hair, growing up. The moment they placed her in my arms is forever etched into my memory - every minute detail still as vivid as the day I met her for the very first time. Thank God her favorite place to be is still in my arms. They’ll forever be open wide, even when she’s grown, as her safe haven to run home to. We celebrated by getting pedicures with Mimi (matching pink with purple sparkles for her and mommy per her request), tacos for lunch - her pick (with a little encouragement from Michael), yummy cake, loooots of playing Uno (her new favorite), and reminiscing about the day she came into the world and into our family four years ago. She is the sweetest, kindest, funniest, most animated little girl who sings at the top of her lungs all day, LOVES her brothers fiercely, and is so thoughtful of others. I am SO proud of who she is growing up to be. Her current favorites: mangoes, apples, lemon bars from our favorite neighborhood bakery, rice bowls (only if Mama makes them), coloring, wrestling with the boys, The Greatest Showman soundtrack, reading, playing basketball with Michael, Crosby, and Daddy, Uno, and cuddling (always). My darling Cove - another lap around the sun, another year to watch you bloom , another measure of deep gratitude to be chosen as your mama. Happiest of all the days my love. xx

Y’all...if you do one thing today, listen to @yanpalmer’s podcast with @ruthielindsey and @jedidiahjenkins. Even better you can do it at home in your undies if you wish. (I did.) It complelety filled me up yesterday and I cannot stop thinking about it today. There are so many truths that were like droplets for my freaking soul. They love each other so deeply and so well and are an example of how we should all love our people. Both of their stories can be found on their websites and are worth a read as well. Another takeaway from their lovefest of a podcast - pain creates a deeper well for love. When you walk through really painful things, your well for love is also expanding and you’re able to connect with so many more people through that pain. Never the sun and rainbows and flowers and all the other good shit without the thunderstorms too. GO listen. You’ll want to be their new BFF I swear. So moved and inspired and blissed out over this podcast! (Plus how CUTE are they?!?!) (Link in Ruthie’s profile.) :)
