Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I see beauty everywhere! So grateful to be living in such a vibrant, color drenched, salty and fragrant land. I love that I can teach Harlow to see with her heart and soak up all this goodness. I am able to teach Harlow and Taj every step we take, because there is so much newness all around! I am really loving how this life we are living is allowing me to really practice being present, and living in the moment.

I stumbled (while driving) upon a breath taking botanical garden here on the east side of Oahu.

Ho'omalihua Botanical Garden is tucked away just under the Ko'olau Mountains which makes it for an even more beautiful back drop. There is a lake filled with fish, and surrounded by ducks and geese to feed. The grounds are literally a rainforest and massive ancient trees tower over to provide shade. It is magical. If I am correct, I believe you can camp there, which is something I'd like to put on our "to-do" list.

Harlow is so in love with nature that it is easy to be present in places like this. Exploring and learning with her in every beautiful moment.

“Mothering is a vocation that stretches us and that helps us find that which is most wise and loving and generous within us. Day by day, we deepen our practice of Momfulness [conscious mothering] by being more present, attentive, compassionate, embodied, in touch with the sacred, and committed to community. As we open to the immense and maternal love at the heart of the universe, we discover that all of life becomes a meditation that transforms us, our families, and our world.” Denise Roy,MOMfulness: Mothering with Mindfulness, Compassion, and Grace

How beautiful was this tree covered in moss?

Harlow, that bread is for the ducks..

Pretty stoked on the fish!

Totally cozy just hanging out!

I'm feeling I need to frame this one!

Leaving you with a little giggle before you go about your day!

  1. Love that you are mothering with your heart and beautiful spirit! Great reminder that there is beauty in every step we take if we just look for it, feel it and remain present long enough to allow those feeling to penetrate our beings. Love and Light
