28 For 28

Mar 28, 2014

In honor of 28 fabulous years of life I want to share 28 random things with you today. They're a little strange and a lot silly and completely me. 
  1. I love cupcakes but not regular cake. I'm also not a fan of ice cream, although I loved it while I was pregnant. 
  2. This year I will be hosting two Sacred Pregnancy mini retreats & one I AM Sisterhood retreat (at my family's cabin!). I am so excited about them both!
  3. I have to eat small candies in twos. M&M's, skittles, and chocolate chips to name just a few.
  4. Everly's smile makes every moment good.
  5. I try not to refer to Aaron as my husband too often because he is SO MUCH MORE than that to me. Husband is too restrictive of a term for how amazing that man is.
  6. I believe in karma.
  7. I also believe in positive energy and putting good vibrations into the world. Bad things happen to good people but you always have a choice of how to react in any situation. Lemons to lemonade and all that stuff.
  8. Everly's baby pictures and the only thing that make me want another child. She was and is the most adorable baby ever. I'm only a little biased.
  9. In the last two months I've started to realize the beauty in doing things for myself. My life is about my husband and daughter but I can't be my best for them if I don't take care of me. So it's okay to get a pedicure or have my hair done once in a while. Those things make me feel good.
  10. I rock Everly to sleep each night while I sing to her. The song Bow Now by Nina Lee is my favorite to sing and the most soothing song I've found for Everly. It's my song for her.
  11. I get to be a part of two weddings this year for two ladies that I love. 
  12. Working with Sacred Pregnancy has changed my life in ways I cannot fully explain. I am a better, brighter, more beautiful person because of it. If I talk about it too much it's because I love it so deeply.
  13. I believe that I have the power to change the world for the better.
  14. Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys is one of my theme songs. When I want to just feel good I put it on and dance around my room. The way I did when I was five and didn't care what anyone thought. I'm moving back to that feeling. 
  15. The Mother's Wisdom Deck really knows me. And Everly.
  16. I am so grateful that Everly has Lizzie to grow up with. I hope that she gets a sister of her very own one day. There is nothing as wonderful as a sister. Cousins are pretty fantastic too.
  17. I'm very behind on my reading one book a week this year. I'm going to catch up though! For my birthday I was gifted with a few books that I know I won't be able to put down.
  18. Mini chewy sweet tarts are my favorite candy ever.
  19. I make the best chocolate chips cookies in the world. 
  20. I love dinner foods for breakfast and breakfast foods for dinner.
  21. When I was little I used a silk pajama and a refrigerator magnet to make myself a princess.
  22. I LOVE to make flower crowns and wear them in everyday life. My friends are starting to refer back to me for all things floral and hippie and it makes my heart happy.
  23. I'm currently researching schools to become an herbalist. I think being a Doctor of Oriental Medicine would be an amazing career path. Also a Midwife. But if I only ever stay a doula I would be happy always.
  24. Everly and Aaron playing together is my favorite thing. Except when I join in and play too.
  25. I love to take pictures, especially birth stories. 
  26. I will spend more to support a good friend or a local business than to go to a corporate store. That being said, I love a good deal! 
  27. Books and flowers make the best gifts.
  28. Taking TWO family pictures in two days was a major accomplishment. Bonus points that they're both adorable!


  1. So cute! Happy Birthday Sue!
