Month in Review

February in Review

Although February went fast, the month was filled with a variety of experiences. From hosting a week-long retreat in Costa Rica, to taking 12 ballet classes, to working on the TranquiliT spring collection, to setting aside a day to declutter, to hosting Tranquility Salon on Sunday nights, to dreaming up the Year of Tranquility Book Launch Fete THIS Friday.

I finished How to Get Away and You are a Badass, and read nuggets from many others such as How Georgia Became O’Keefe and My Life on the Road. For some reason I’m unable to focus on one book at a time and the pile of books on the side of my bed continues to reproduce while I sleep. I blame used bookstores.

When I reviewed my February Dreams, I was delighted to see that many of the intentions had come forth—collaborations with clients, Love Notes, dance classes, online event planning, decluttering, daily greens, four podcasts, veterinary social work classes. Although there are a few missing the X through the box, I’m moving them into March and calling it a day. Most are not time sensitive, but rather wishes for streamlining and enhancing.

I hope you, too, are proud of your month. You showed up and did your best. Sometimes life has other plans—illness, caregiving, injuries, exhaustion—and that’s okay.

As Scarlett would say, “After all, tomorrow is another day!” You got this and so much more. Happy March, loves! Bisous. x

Tranquil Treasures

We are treasure chests with more jewels inside than we can imagine.—Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Did you know that there’s a private collection of tranquility tools over on my website?

Each tool—from mp3s, to yoga practices, to guided meditations, to downloadable manifestos and toolkits—is chosen to assist you on your journey.

You’ll find new inspiration stockpiled in this treasure trove from time to time. Soon you’ll see a “style” heading with tips on mixing and matching using my “uniform” (TranquiliT 2in1 fitted top and capri leggings) as an example, along with a yoga video, and self-care checklist.

If there’s something you’d like to see added, please let me know. Thanks for your reading and listening!

To access the treasures, sign up for my Love Notes sent every few weeks. Bisous. x
