Now more than ever is a good time for me to reflect and be thankful for the opportunity and ability to put in the countless hours and effort and care towards growing our own food. Food sustainability is a goal that we’ve had for many years which has impacted many of our life decisions along the way. Thankful for beautiful, filling, banana racks and for nature’s abundance. A time to slow down, be home, and be thankful. Thankful for my husband’s fruitful labors with more to come. 🍌
Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body. -Ina May gaskin
Never have I been more thankful for capturing such a special time of my life. It goes by so quickly with a blink of an eye. Thank you to my extremely talented friend @chelsea.jean for capturing this time, this transition, this growth, and these profound beginnings in my life. I will cherish these photos forever. @chelseajeanpresets
I’m positive we will look back on these days as the best days of our lives. The days where we lend a shoulder to lean on when another is going through something tough. The days where we celebrate pregnancies through Blessingways filled with coffee scrubs, flower petals, affirming ceremonies, and ocean cleanses. And bring each other home cooked meals when a new baby arrives. And tinctures when one is home sick with mastitis. The days where we support each other’s work and business ventures, and everything within us wants the best for each other, to succeed in all ways they pursue. The days where we support and listen to each other’s perspectives, life experiences and struggles. The days where we cry together, laugh together, and take each other’s kids for a day so the other can catch a breath from the intensity of motherhood. The days where we bring over take-out food to be there and cry with one another when one is struggling to have a baby. The days where life is so insanely busy for each of us trying to juggle motherhood, relationships or pursuing careers - or all of it, that we understand how little time we really have for each other, but the time we do get to spend together is precious and well spent.
These are the days we will look back and realize, how in the moment felt so intense and challenging, was the best ever to have each other by our sides through it all. It’s not always perfect, and some of us see each other more than others, but it is always filled with love. You know who you are, not all are pictured, I love all of you.
Happy 2nd birthday our darling Scout! The day you entered the world changed our lives forever!
It feels like yesterday I was pulling you up onto my chest, embracing your sweet little body as you let out your first cry in my arms. What an incredible experience.
We cherish every unique thing about you. Your sparkling personality, warm smile, strong sense of self, and large vocabulary / wonderful communication skills blows people away daily.
Oh Scouty we adore you and are so thankful we get to be your family!
Yummmm! Stopped for some delicious vegan food on the west side at @mokuroots after a day on the water with friends. Elvis’ got to practice surfing with a friend of ours and stood up on the board for the first time, yay! He was so proud and kept going back out to try again and again and again.
The Taro burger, lemonade, vegan sushi of the week, and kombucha at Moku Roots is to die for. If you’re ever on the island of Maui and looking for a good place to eat and support, you gotta check out @mokuroots. It’s Maui’s only zero-waste restaurant filled with delicious vegan/vegetarian food. They use TONS of locally grown plants in their menu and even wrap their taro burgers and burritos to-go for you in Ti leaves when you’re on the go! COOLEST RESTAURANT!

Farmer’s market papaya and lilikoi. My fave combo. I love whole plant foods (Lilikoi aka passionfruit 🌸) I went with a few friends to a Dr. Michael Greger talk last week from @nutrition_facts_org . He was a guest speaker on island and so many people showed up! Dr. Greger is a wonderful physician and amazing speaker with so much knowledge and an incredible amount of resources on plant-based nutrition. I highly recommend you check out his site, which is a strictly non-commercial, science-based public service website providing free updates on the latest nutrition research.
From Dr. Greger: “Whenever there is a new drug or surgical procedure, you can be assured that you or your doctor will probably hear about it because there’s a corporate budget driving its promotion. But what about advances in the field of nutrition? The reason we don’t see ads on TV for broccoli is the same reason groundbreaking research on the power of foods and eating patterns to affect our health and longevity gets lost and buried in the medical literature–there’s no profit motive. It may not make anyone money, but what if our lives would profit?” Also my friend Simon from @plant_proof has a wealth of information on his page! He has his masters in nutrition and his podcast is amazing too - he interviews a diverse range of public figures from doctors, to influencers, to neurologists, to athletes who are all united by a shared passion for plant-based lifestyle. There’s so much valuable information from his podcast, def check it out if you haven’t already.
I hope you find these resources helpful, I think I’ll start sharing more of my favorites on plant-based nutrition from time to time for you guys to check out if you don’t already follow. ☺️
This might seem like it was a peaceful morning based on this one photo and clip, but in reality we had one heck of a morning of craziness with spills, screams, big emotions, diaper explosions, and I was stressed with a lot of work I had to do for a time sensitive project, all while rushing to get everyone’s clothes on and teeth brushed before homeschool group. We came out to the swing to take a break which helped us both calm down and was worth being 5 or 10 minutes late.
And then I read this:
‘Someday when the kids are grown, we’ll have the clean house, open schedule, and five minutes of peace we long for in this season.
And I think it might just break our hearts.’ words by @bouncing_forward
Hearty preggo lunch:
lentils, rice, kale, avocado, purple sauerkraut and diced farmer’s market tomatoes with salt + cracked black pepper. So good, filling and nutritious. 🥑🍅🍚🥬
