Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s the end of another week and almost the end of March, at that! Time is seriously flying.

On Wednesday, I got to spend the day in the city working with Jillian and then meeting up with our other SF ladies. It’s always nice to escape Santa Cruz for a day and be immersed in the excitement and energy of the city. And there’s nothing like spending time with friends who are on the same page as you and are living the same type of lifestyle. It’s always nice to have a group of friends that knows and has gone through many of the same struggles and challenges as you. I always come home from SF feeling excited, inspired, and supported.

As mentioned earlier this week, Seth and I are heading to Big Sur on Monday next week for a couple of nights of camping. I haven’t decided if I’m going to plan any posts yet, but I will definitely be off of my phone the whole trip – no email, no social media, no nothin! I’m giving myself (and Seth, let’s be honest) the gift of an electronic detox. It’ll just be us and Bailey, the woods, and our imagination.

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you at the end of next week at the latest!

P.S. I’m currently working on a new set of designs for Style + Spirit and am asking for you input on the tee in this photo. Also, if there’s any style of apparel or anything else you’d love to see, let me know!

Today I just want to remind you to believe in who you are.

Maybe you’re shy. Maybe you’re outgoing. Maybe you’re generous, funny, and smart. Maybe you’re quick witted, kind, and optimistic. Maybe you’re kind of weird. Maybe you’re stubborn. Maybe you’re selfish. Maybe you’re too selfless. Maybe you’re terrible with money but great in the kitchen. Maybe you can’t cook if your life depended on it. Maybe you’re a decorating rockstar. Maybe you’re adventurous, fun, and unguarded. Maybe you’re a homebody, sensitive, and have a big heart. Maybe you’re driven and determined. Maybe you’re distracted easily. Maybe you’re high strung. Maybe you’re laid back and down to earth. Maybe you’re all of these things. Maybe you’re none of these things.

The thing is, there will never be anyone with your mix of talents, strengths, weaknesses, and personality traits again. We are all unique combinations of traits and experiences, fears and beliefs, innate characteristics and learned behaviors. Because of this, we must not make ourselves more special or less special than anyone else. We must simply realize that there is only one us.

Believe in who you are because you will never exist again. Only you can bring forth the gifts you were meant to share with the world.
