Don't Wait to Celebrate Yourself

After the loss of my beautiful cousin last week, I've really adopted her mantra of "wear your good jewelry."

I wrote all about it here, in case you missed it.



It's been heartwarming to see my grandmother's ring, the grandmother who passed away my senior year and that I shared with my cousin, on my finger everyday and smile as I think of both of them.

It makes me feel like I'm keeping them close as I continue to live my life.

I've even started wearing perfume. Something I've never really done, even though I have several bottles. I'm not sure what, if anything, I've been saving it for. Maybe it was this.

Recently, a friend shared a video that completely encompasses the idea of "wear your good jewelry," and I had to share.

It's a beautiful story and message. I hope you get as much out of it as I have.




Tomorrow isn't promised. It's not a guarantee. So go ahead, wear your good jewelry, dress for a party every day, use the fine china for pizza night!

Above all, be happy and do things that make you happy. It's your life, afterall.

Much love,

Carly

PS~ I know Courtney's been working on research about Essential Oils and grieving. I'm very much looking forward to reading it.

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
