Nikki Weaver @nikkiweaver
Two girls, Margot and Elliette, 6 & 4.
Lives in Portland, OR.
You are a mom and?
I work as the Education Director for Portland Playhouse, and am one of three co-founders. I also work nationally and internationally leading creative wellness retreats for women.
How do you deal with difficult days?
On hard days, I call up my soul sisters and surround myself with strong, inspiring women who can hold me and hear me.
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
Our abundant garden, bike commuting, and people meeting. My children eat what we grow. We spend more time outside than inside. While running a theatre, my kids are constantly surrounded by new people and new stories. I love watching them learn and process art making.
What are you most proud of as a mother?
The strong, smart, well-spoken, courageous little women I am trying to raise. I encourage risk taking and I admit failure. I’m working on listening as a form of prayer.
A go to meal?
Roasted veggies and steamed rice with avocado.
A parenting solution that recently changes something for me was apologizing when I react too quickly. I can barely remember an adult apologizing to me as a child. I want to gift my girls the belief that adults aren’t always right, we can offer apologizes to anyone anytime. I’m a work in progress, just like my children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do what you have to do, to succeed in life.
I believe in smartness, but not hard work.
A lot have really happened, since that I've been busy with one or two.
I really have some much to share but, I'm just letting the cockroach out of the basket. Now.
So stay tuned and follow me up at samdiya.com
Caffe Fiore: Part II⠀
“Pouring espresso is an art, one that requires the barista to care about the quality of the beverage.” — Howard Schultz⠀
The baristas at Caffe Fiore are the best. They are always so friendly and welcoming when a customer walks in and they treat every customer like they’re regulars...not to mention they make one of the most delicious frothiest espresso drinks in the city. ⠀

Chelsea the outdoor elf, happiest out here🍂♥️ @keen
In addition to being fall it’s also almost voting season in the US! :) I’ve always been semi apathetic about national politics (and coming from Hawaii everything seemed so far away) and preferred learning about international issues. In the last few years I’ve realized how much just one voice can matter. It’s an important tool we have to create change for things we care about, even if it seems like a slow process at times.
My @keen team has easy links to check your registration status, where your nearest polling stations are, early voting etc. As it is with the outdoors, the best things require some effort - get up, get out, and show up☺️ #Bettertakesaction#Keenambassador#Washington
