I didn’t set out to make any New Year resolutions this year, and I believe it’s the first time I’ve not.
You see, when I go about ruminating on a past year to propel me into a fresh year, I start picking apart all the things I didn’t accomplish or the things I didn’t do well and I chalk them up as failures. Maybe I didn’t hustle hard enough, maybe I made the hustle my priority, maybe I didn’t prioritize anything well at all, and maybe I didn’t do all the things I thought or said I would. I start off a new year with all my brand new absolutes as well as the old unfulfilled ones, and don’t take into consideration all the other true absolutes that will railroad even the best of intentions... and soon the bucket of anxiety fills up as I’m staring down a 365 day alarm clock. Not to say that goals aren’t essential & healthy. Most are indeed, and fuel growth.
I’m finding that most of mine don’t have a ‘best by’ date and most don’t come by way of A-ha! moments, but instead come about like a slow unfurling. I’m learning to be content in my day-to-day and satisfied in slow progress. One thing at a time, man. Perhaps that’s my best “anti” resolution of all. Who knows.
I do know for certain though, that I won’t be an easy early riser anytime soon. I’ve been trying for years to meet 6am with joy... but 8am is where it’s at✨
These 6 turquoise backed pendants will be available in the Shop section of my website later today at 4pm PST
I’m doing something a little different with the listings this time- My site doesn’t allow me to select all of my listings and publish them at once, in one fell swoop. I have to select one listing, make ‘available’ and then save...and so on for each individual piece. This means that the listings show up for you staggered over 2-5 minutes. There have been questions and frustration about that issue. Sooo, I’m password protecting the Shop link until 4pm. At that time, I’ll open it up and all the listings should be there at once, right on time. *Should, friends...should🤞😬🙏
Complete opposite to my last Alwen post. Cold, frozen, moody and not a single person in sight ❄️

Curving gracefully through Venice for two miles, the main water traffic route is lined by dramatic centuries-old palaces, churches, hotels, and other buildings in an eclectic array of architectural styles. Discover the magical floating city of Venice, Italy - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. #MyVantagePoint

About to crawl into a random hole in the earth... little did I know that silly hat would basically give me a concussion.
Anyone else a huge Game of Thrones fan??? I was super stoked to visit Grjótagjá, seeing as how it’s one of the many spots in Iceland where they filmed scenes from GoT. Everything was going great until I headed out of the cave and walked full force into a rock, that my lovely hat brim hid from my eye line. 🤦🏼♀️ I rang my own bell pretty darn good and couldn’t see straight for a nice little chunk of the day! But hey, that fangirl moment was totally worth it.
