🌹 The Feminine 🌹

Some thoughts that have been forming in my heart since yesterday’s #InternationalWomensDay celebrations. The Divine Feminine, awakening within our hearts, can take on many different forms.

Embracing the Beauty of the Colder Months

I’ve always been a fiend for summer – as I have made abundantly clear on this blog, time and time again.
