children spell love: T.I.M.E.

A great friend of mine sent an article a while ago about how you should travel with your kids even when they are tiny. It was a reminder of the complex neurological development in babies and toddlers and how they are absorbing everything. It shed light on the common worry (or thought) that a trip…

Nourish yourself in order to nourish others: On taking time for you & accepting time when it’s offered.

Sometimes our brains (and hearts) get in a sticky-confused-state between what you think you should be doing and what you actually should be doing.
